What is Super?

Super is a first-of-its-kind tool for streamers and video editors. It allows anyone to create professional overlay animations — no matter your channel size or budget.

All you need is a few minutes to customize a design. First select an animation template, then personalize its appearance. Once ready, download and save your file to your PC. Finally, import your file to OBS or video editing software.

Super is easy to use, lightning-fast, and ultra affordable. Best of all, you can customize nearly every aspect of your super’s appearance. Adjust colors, text and images — then preview your changes right before your eyes.

Create your supers

Supers come in many forms—including text, images, and animations. As this tool grows, you’ll unlock new templates to customize.

To get started, log in or create a VBI account.

How it works

  • 1

    Log in

    If you haven’t already, create a Visuals by Impulse account. While you can preview supers without one, you’ll need a VBI account to submit a super for processing.

  • 2

    Pick a template

    When you’re ready, select a template to get started. Browse the available super categories — hover over a template to preview its animation.

  • 3

    Add a Credit

    If you haven’t already, purchase some Credits. You’ll need these to submit most supers for processing. A single Credit costs $5.

  • 4

    Edit your design

    Start customizing! Personalize text, media and settings to make your super one-of-a-kind. As you change information, your super will update before your eyes! To start over, click the Reset button.

  • 5

    Save your changes

    Need to step away? At any time you can click the Save Changes button and return to your super later. To see all active projects, click the Your Library tab.

  • 6

    Submit your super

    Once you’re ready, click the appropriate button. Add to Cart allows you to work on additional templates, while Buy Now immediately burns one credit to process your super.

  • 7

    Wait a few minutes

    Your super will need time to fully process. Wait times vary depending on queue length and design complexity. Generally, most supers should render within a few minutes. To track your progress, visit the Queue tab.

  • 8

    Download your file

    When your super is ready, it will appear in the Downloads section of the Queue tab. Click it, save your video file locally, then drag it into your streaming or editing software.

How do Credits work?

Credits are tokens used to generate a Super animation. A single credit costs $5.

Credits can also be used on Super’s sister tool, the Transition Maker. This allows you to custom-create stingers using your logo and brand colors.

Any unused credits will expire December 31st, 2023 as we sunset the Super tool later in the year.

Frequently asked questions

Not seeing your question answered? Check out the complete Super support guide.

How long does it take to process a super once I have purchased it?

Processing time varies based on a number of factors. These include queue length (how many users are ahead of you), super type (Premium supers generally process faster than free ones) and design complexity (the more advanced the template, the more rendering power will be needed). Many supers will render in under a minute, while others can take between 2-5 minutes to finish.

What video format will my super be? Can I choose a particular file format?

Supers can be processed and downloaded in either MOV or WEBM format. Generally, we’d recommend WEBMs for streaming software and MOVs for video editing.

You can select your preferred file format before submitting a super for processing. Choose correctly, otherwise you’ll have to resubmit your super in the right format—which will cost an additional Credit.

What streaming software do supers work in?

Supers work on all major streaming software, including OBS Studio, Streamlabs, StreamElements, XSplit and more.

What video editing software will my supers work in?

Supers work in most—if not all—NLE editing applications, including Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve. We suggest using MOV format for your video projects, whether you’re a creator or filmmaker.

Will my supers work on Mac?

Yes. If you are a Mac-user, we suggest processing your super as a MOV format.

How do I add my super file to OBS?

Supers work just like animated stream overlays. Within your OBS software, locate the “Sources” tab. Click the “+” button to add a new source, then select “Media Source” and open your super file. Alternatively, you can drag and drop your video file into OBS Studio or Streamlabs OBS. Once your super appears on-screen, you can adjust its size and placement to fit your needs!

Can I make a super from my mobile device?

Yes, you can submit a super for processing from your mobile device. However, we recommend downloading your file to desktop before adding it to OBS or a video editing software.

How long are my supers saved? Are they ever removed?

Forever! Your supers—including saved templates and processed supers—will never be removed, unless your VBI account is deactivated.

Can I preview supers before processing or buying them?

Yes, feel free to customize and preview super animations as much as you’d like. However, note that you’ll need to be logged in to save changes to a super template.

Can I get a refund if I don’t like my super?

Once a Credit is spent on a super, it is final. We do not offer refunds on processed supers. However, you can experiment, tweak and preview supers as much as you’d like. That way you can be 100% confident with your design before submitting it for processing. If you have questions before submitting a super, our support team is happy to assist.

Do I need to worry about DMCA takedowns due to super sound effects?

No, all our sound effects are mixed in-house and free to use. You’ll never have to worry about your audio content getting flagged.

Do I need a license in order to use supers in my content?

No, supers don’t require a license—as long as you are logged into the tool from a legitimate Visuals by Impulse account. Supers may not be redistributed in any way, whether sold or given away for free. Feel free to use supers on all your content, whether it be live or produced.
