How to add Watermark: 4 Steps to Watermark a Video with Video or Photo

Step 1: Add video and watermark files to the Filmora Video Editor

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. This video watermark software supports almost all regular video and image file formats, such as MP4, WMV, AVI, JPG, JPEG, BMP, PNG, JPG, etc.


Step 2: Add video and watermark files to the Timeline

The background video should be on the video track (the first track on timeline), while the video/picture clip which is working as a watermark should be dragged and dropped onto the PIP track. Then you can extend the duration of the watermark clip the same as the background video’s. To do that , you need to hang your mouse at the ending edge of the watermark clip until the icon “double arrow” cursor shows up ,then drag it to the same duration as the background video .


Step 3: Adjust watermark

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 .

Motion: Choose from more than 30 kinds of motion effects to make watermark animated. There will be a sign when motion is added to a watermark.

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 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.

Effect: This tab allows you to add a border, shadow, rotate, flip and add alpha effects to your watermark.


Step 4: Save watermarked videos

When you have finished the customization of video watermark, click "Export". You can save watermarked videos in almost any format you want by clicking "Format". If you want to share your videos on YouTube, go directly to the YouTube tab and upload watermarked videos there. You can also create videos for mobile devices and burn to DVD for backup purposes.

I followed directions but my logo doesn't suddenly become black background on import, and the whitebackground rectangle stays with it as a logo on my video rather than becoming transparent. please help
Their support is actually very good. Support isn't through comments though.
Hi Midna, I have downloaded the latest Filmora version, and the watermark is much less. You can see it at the attached image. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/13a0b8046101c4bb73b52b5fad7edc4ea69f64f127cb21814994afbba57a6633.png You can download it and now, and export your video again to check. And as I know, if you are a student, you can always get a discount. Get more information at https://store.wondershare.com/shop/buy/buy-video-editor.html
I'm guessing their customer support is lame... A month old question and no answer.. smh!
Please tell me theres a way to move and resize the filmora watermark I can't afford the full version and the filmora watermark literally plasters the whole screen of my video so you can't see anything. How do I edit that? Please tell me I can at least shrink the damn thing...
