As we can see from the video above, adding watermark or logo to video with Wondershare Filmora is very easy. Filmora, which is available on both Windows and Mac, is not only an ideal tool to edit your videos, but also one of the best video watermark software tools available today. Apart from using a static image such as logo or watermark, it allows users to create video watermarks simply by adding a video using the Picture-in-Picture feature. Let's check step by step below.
How to add Watermark: Watermark a Video with Video or Photo [4 Steps]
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 Media Library 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 first track on timeline, while the video/picture clip which is working as a watermark should be dragged and dropped onto the track above the background video track. Then you can extend the duration of the watermark image or clip to 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 transforms, compositing, motion, shape as well as adding a border/shadow ,etc to it . Its transforms including position, scaling, rotation, and compositing settings such as the Blending Mode and the Opacity of the Logo Image. Switch to Color and Motion tab to do color grading and apply motion effects.
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. Or drag the Positon slider
Size: Drag the handles around the watermark clip to resize it.
Filmora also allows you to customize the shape of your logo image. Go to Effects tab and select Utility under Filters menu, choose Image Mask and drag it within the Logo image in the track.
Double click the Logo image in the timeline and you will see some mask presets. Choose one mask and fine adjust its position, width, height and feather settings to get a perfect look.
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".
