Sharing visual content through online channels can be beneficial for numerous reasons, but once videos are online there are very few ways to protect them from copyright infringements.

Part 1: How to Effortlessly Remove Watermarks from Videos with Filmora9 on Windows & Mac [3 Methods]
Removing watermarks from your videos with Wondershare Filmora9 video editing software is a simple and easy process. You don't have to be an experienced editor in order to complete these simple editing actions. All you need to do is select a method that best suits your needs and perform a simple action that is very easy to learn. Let's have a look at some editing techniques you can use to remove watermarks from videos with Filmora9.
Note: the methods listed below won’t work perfectly if the watermark is in middle of the screen. And to remove the watermark from Filmora, you may need to subscribe. If you're a student or teacher or releated staffs, you can get a special discount at https://effects.wondershare.com/student-discount.
Method 1. Blurring the Watermark
Even though this method will not remove the watermark from the video, it can be used to make it less obvious. The Filmora9's Mosaic feature will enable you to blur logos and all other on screen graphics with just a few clicks. Click Efeects at the top, and choose Utility at left and then click Mosaic to preview the effect. Click plus icon on the thumbnail on Mosaic or just drag-and-drop it into the track above the video.
After it is applied, a mosaic square will appear in the preview window, adjust its size or relocate it by simply dragging it to the area of the preview window where the watermark is positioned. If the video has more than one logo you need to cover, clicking plus icon will add another mosaic square to your project. Double click on the Mosaic effects in timeline, you can choose Blur Amount and Type to adjust the size and shape of mosaic. Click OK to apply the adjustment.
This method will enable you to remove the watermark from your video completely, but the cropping method will also remove a part of the shot that is wide as the watermark. Cropping the area where the watermark is located isn't possible in any editor, so if you choose to crop the video be prepared to lose a certain amount the picture. Once the footage you want to crop is placed on the video track in the Filmora9's timeline, right click on the clip to select Crop and Zoom.
The crop window that enables you to crop video manually or by using automatic aspect ratios will appear on the screen. From here you can simply reposition the corners of the cropping rectangle by dragging it as much as necessary to remove the watermark from the frame. You can keep the aspect ratio as original or change it based on your needs. Click OK to apply the cropping effect and you have successfully removed a watermark from your video.
Cons: As we said before, removing watermark by cropping video will crop out some frames as well. And this way only works when the watermark is located at the corner of the video.
Method 3.Replacing the watermark
Since cropping the watermark without losing a part of the frame simply isn't possible, replacing the existing watermark with the one the suits your needs is an option worth considering. In order to do this, you first need to import the new logo using the Import Media feature and place it on the timeline. The next step is to set the duration of the new logo file to be as long as the original file so the previous watermark remains covered throughout the whole video.
The new file you added to your project will be displayed in the preview window, simply drag the ends of the square to adjust its size and drag the image to place it over the watermark embedded in the video. Your job is now complete since the watermark in the video is now replaced with the one you selected.
Cons: The new logo file need to be perfect size to cover the original watermark.
