Nowadays, videos are more and more used on company websites like demos, tutorials, samples, and event introductions. Adding a logo as watermark can protect the copyright and help promote your brand as well. Here's a step by step video tutorial:
Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor), 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 Filmora's Picture-in-Picture function.
4 Steps to Watermark a Video with Video or Photo
Step 1Add 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. 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 2Add 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 drooped 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 3Adjust 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 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.
Effect: This tab allows you to add a border, shadow, rotate, flip and add alpha effects to your watermark.
Step 4Save watermarked videos
When you have finished the customization of video watermark, click "Create". 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.
Tips: Besides video watermarks, Filmora also provides other video editing functions like adding background music, photos, special effects, etc.
