OBS Studio 29 Beta 1 has been released as the newest test version for this widely-used, cross-platform open-source software for screen-casting and screen-recording purposes. OBS Studio 29 most notably is adding AV1 hardware-accelerated encoding for Intel Arc Graphics and AMD Radeon GPUs.

OBS Studio already supports AV1 encoding with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs while with OBS Studio 29 it's coming for Intel Arc Graphics and AMD Radeon RX 7000 "RDNA3" GPUs that have AV1 hardware encode capabilities. OBS Studio 29 is also bringing support for Intel HEVC-based encoding too.

OBS Studio 29 Beta 1 also has a new upward compressor filter, 3-band equalizer filter, support for native HEVC and ProRes encoders on Apple macOS, and a variety of other tweaks, improvements, and bug fixes.

Windows / macOS / Linux downloads along with the full list of changes for OBS Studio 29 Beta 1 can be found via GitHub.
