Although maybe not completely necessary, it seems that a number of “good” Twitch/Mixer live stream channels use “starting soon” or “be right back” screens. These can help viewers know that the stream is running, but there’s some behind-the-scenes stuff that’s being dealt with. One of the features that many of these splash screens have is a “window” on the actual stream itself, which is more relevant for the BRB screen than the intro because the game is still running when the streamer is AFK.

I have two versions of this: the “starting soon” version, and the “be right back” version, and they vary only by the text at the bottom. When in use, there are a few more animated bits that are composted via XSplit, but which aren’t part of this composition. The chroma screen is replaced using XSplit’s built-in keying so that the game being streamed can be displayed in the right location.
