Hi, im Viplexity. Recently, I wanted to start live streaming myself whilst I animate with Adobe After Effects (2019) with the application "StreamLabs OBS". Everything works well except for the fact that the workspace panel in After Effects doesn't show up on stream. Every other panel appears EXCEPT for the workspace panel and I have no clue why. That's the panel that is needed most for display so that the audience can see what i'm animating and how i'm doing it. I've contacted an Adobe employee and they didn't know how to fix it and directed me here to ask one of you for an answer. The streaming program isn't the issue because it works just fine with Sony Vegas and other programs. My Adobe programs are the only ones having this issue (This happens with Photoshop as well but I don't plan on streaming Photoshop). @issue.PNG

OBS cannot see screen regions that are hardware-accelerated.

Under After Effects Preferences > Display, turn off Hardware Accelerate Composition, Layer and Footage Panels

This appears to be an issue between OBS and Adobe products generally:

I usualy do not use OBS for AE streaming, but I'm using OBS for Video Podcasting so I tryed recreate your issue and unfortunatelly I can't. It seems that everything works as it should in OBS and Streamlabs OBS for me. The same with PS. So it is hard for me to say what can be the issue.
I'm not sure if that is the corrct direction but tell us wha is your GPU model/vendor - maby there is something in there that we can do.

This solutions worked for me.
  1. Open OBS
  2. Click the gear icon for your Window Capture of After Effects
  3. Set "Capture Method" to "Windows 10"
  4. Profit
