Step 1: Add video and watermark files to the program

You can either click the "Import" button on the primary window and select files from your computer, or just capture videos directly to the in-program User's Album with your webcam or other video-capture device.

By double click on the watermark clip, you can customize it with its motion, position, size, shape as well as adding a border/shadow ,etc to it .

Position: Put your mouse on the watermark clip and drag it anywhere in the preview window.

Size: Drag the handles around the watermark clip to resize it.


By left clicking the “Advanced” tab, you can edit the mask and effects of the watermark clips.

Mask: Shape your watermark with double left click on one of the shapes. Adjust the image width or height.
