OBS Studio 27.0.1 hotfix changes:

  • Fixed 16bpp PNGs rendering brighter than version 26 [jpark37]

  • Fixed a bug where various sources, including game capture, would get stuck on a black screen sometimes [Jim]
  • Fixed a context bar crash introduced by a 27.0 change [Jim]
  • Fixed a bug where you could generate invalid undo/redo actions by clicking “Move Up” or “Move down” without having any source selected [WizardCM]
  • Fixed an issue where Psycho Visual Tuning would cause NVENC to fail to load when enabled for certain devices. Instead, they will now load without it if it’s unavailable [jpark37]

  • Fixed a bug where “Delete Scene” undo/redo action was not being translated [WizardCM]

  • Audio sources and scenes without filters will no longer have the “Copy Filters” option enabled [RytoEX]
  • Added “Apply alpha in linear space” option to the media source which treats alpha as linear rather than non-linear (basically if you don’t know what that means, leave it alone) [jpark37]
