Modified on Thu, 02 Nov 2023 at 03:08 AM

In the era of digital media, watermarks play a significant role in protecting intellectual property and establishing brand identity. As a Business Plan user, you have the enhanced ability to add a custom watermark to your video projects. This feature provides an extra layer of security to your content while ensuring your brand's visibility throughout the viewing experience.

Whether you already have a ready-made watermark or wish to create one from scratch, our platform offers flexible options to suit your needs. Before we delve into the process, it's important to note that you should use a 1920x1080 .png transparent image for optimal results.

Adding a Watermark from Your Files

To add your watermark, initiate the process by clicking the "Add" button. You will then be presented with two options: "Add from My Files" and "Generate Watermark".

Choosing the "Add from My Files" option, you can add a watermark either from "My Exports" - which contains all previously exported logos or from "My Uploads" - where you can access the images already uploaded to our cloud storage.

In the "My Uploads" section, you will also find the "Upload" button, which enables you to upload a file directly from your device. With this method, your watermark will be visible across the entire screen of your video project, ensuring constant brand presence.

Creating a Watermark In-Editor

If you opt for the second option, "Generate Watermark", a new window will open with more creative possibilities. By clicking "Add Logo", you are given the flexibility to insert your logo, adjust its size, opacity, mode, and position to meet your specific needs. The "Mode" toggle provides two unique choices: have a single watermark or create a tiled effect across the whole screen. This versatility allows you to decide how pronounced your watermark should be.

As for positioning, you can place your watermark on the left bottom, left top, right top, or right bottom of the screen. This flexibility ensures that your watermark will not interfere with any crucial visual content in your video. However, you can also manually adjust the position of the logo to your liking.

Generating Text-Based Logos

Not only can you add image-based watermarks, but you also have the option to create a text-based logo directly within the editor. Just type in your text and customize it by changing its size, color, and font. For precise color matching to your brand, you can insert a hex color code. Just like with image-based watermarks, you can choose between a single or tiled mode for your text-based logo and select its position on the screen. 

Once you're satisfied with your settings, click "Done", and voila! Your custom watermark will be added successfully to your project.
