Here's some high level info: Check out the full Beta release notes for details.

VST3 Plugins (Pro feature)

VST effects plugins allow you to alter your audio sources in new and exciting ways. Whether you want to add a simple reverb or pan, or mimic the sounds of the '80s in a synthwave track, you can do it with VST effects plugins.

We have added the ability to load 3rd party VST plugins into Wirecast, to use on audio sources.

Read the attached VST info for more info and instructions.


A few really exciting things we've added around shortcuts:

  • The ability to customize your application keyboard shortcuts.
    • Change the defaults, create your own keyboard shortcut sets that you can import and export, add shortcuts to menu items that never had them before... We're hoping this gives you a whole new avenue for improving productivity.
  • The ability to assign multiple document Hotkeys to a single shot.
    • This will let you use one shot as part of several different composite shots, using the Hotkey functionality built into Wirecast.
  • Display your assigned Hotkey as the Hotkey Name or the Hotkey Keystrokes

Increased Rendezvous resolution:

  • We've increased the default video resolution of Rendezvous guests to 720p.

Rendezvous Camera + Screen Share

Now a Rendezvous guest can share both their desktop and video camera at the same time.

The screen share is optimized for sharing PPTs and other text on screen, and the feed appears separate from the video feed in Wirecast, so the host can put them in a picture-in-picture or separate shots.


And some other notable improvements and features:

  • Ability to add audio effects to the final output mix
  • Access and moderate social media comments even if you're not using the Facebook or YouTube destination APIs, or if your production computer is not the one streaming.
  • Pin Wirecast as the topmost window option

Plus over 140 fixes!
