OBS allows you to organize your scenes and tracks together in a single window by adding them both to the same group. Both of these ideas are used as ways to manage your resources.

For example, if you have a particular background image that you’d like to appear during portions of your streaming or recording sessions, having it contained within its own scene will give the ability to easily apply that resource at the onset and end of each recording session while also helping you keep track of it among other video and audio related assets.
