More pics of my setup... configured many more scenes in OBS, granted they need to be adjusted every time I setup the game... slightly, but I can have a close up of each segment of the board, and still use the document camera for autofocus on a particular area (I run out of room on the left side since I put my furniture/miniature boxes there). The blue patch is the "face" webcam (for that personal touch).

Even though ALL of this can be done with just the tripod usb camera... I love having the document camera, for dice, card draws, closeups of any kind really.

More scene shots from OBS. Whatever I show on my screen will show up in Zoom using the "obs camera" in video and I can switch between them at the touch of a button. Not pictured: the tripod above ("board view"). This is the 1 inch custom board with matte finish.

What does that camera setup look like with tripods and overheads and whatnot around the board? :)

Excellent question. I have a picture somewhere here for the tripod itself, but the shots taken BY the tripod are the "board" shots.

Document camera = focus/closeup
Tripod camera = board (including the "zoomed in") board shots
face = webcam

I now have hotkeys for all the main views I use which is great.
