Video Watermark - How to Watermark a Video with Video or Photo

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.

Wondershare Filmora (originally Wondershare Video Editor) 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 simly by adding a video using Filmora's Picture-in-Picture function. This article will show you the easy way to add a video or image as a video watermark in Windows. If you're a Mac user, just use the Mac video editor to achieve the same.

I'm currently playing around with watermarks a bit in the trial version, but have trouble getting it right. I want to use a picture, without any animation, just have it in one corner, 50x50 pixel wide. It doesn't matter if I take the original size (400x400 pixel) or adjust the size to 50x50 pixel, every time I import and use it, it will show me the whole picture, stretched to fit the top and bottom of the screen. When I then change the size manually it will always come out really pixelated. Is there any way to scale the watermark down to 50x50 pixel while keeping the picture quality? Also, similar to mrsilverblade, I wonder if you can make your watermark transparent/opaque. Not the wondershare trial version watermark, mind you, but the watermark you yourself apply to videos. I've only found the green screen solution and this obviously doesn't work. If it is only possible to use those features in the full version, please let me know. I looked everywhere in the faq but I wasn't able to find anything.
Once you buy to get the license, it'll disappear, clearly.
