Sharing videos on social media is an excellent way to establish your brand. Make it known that your video is yours by adding a watermark with Descript. Overlay your brand’s icon by simply dragging and dropping it into Descript’s video editor. Download the app to get started.
Right after clicking “New project,” you can drag and drop your video files into your workstation. Descript works well with most formats, including AVI, WMV, MOV, and MKV.
When you have your clips in place, you can start editing your video with the watermark. Add transitions, keyframe animations, and even other videos and audio.
Descript is designed for editing with multiple layers, which is great for adding watermarks to your video. Like videos, you can drag and drop your image files into the workstation (Descript can work with BMP, GIF, JPEG, EXIF, PNG, and TIFF). From there, you can resize, change position and opacity, or even animate your logo to your specifications.
You can embellish your logo with shading or add text, shadow, and shapes, if for some reason you want to. Because it's a vector graphic, you can resize however you like without negotiating pixels and file size.
It can be a hassle making sure that your logo has a transparent background when you upload it (the trick is to save it in PNG). But you don't need to open Photoshop for a simple, elegant text watermark. You can overlay text in a custom font anywhere on your video, all in-app. It only takes a few clicks.
This process introduces a lot of files into the mix. It can be nerve-wracking knowing that someone may do irreparable damage to your image and video files. Relax. Descript’s video editing tools are non-destructive. Your files are all in the cloud, fresh as the day you uploaded them.
Same as how a company will watermark photos to protect against copyright infringement and misrepresentation, a watermark on a YouTube video helps ensure the video’s provenance is apparent wherever it goes. A watermark also helps with branding — a subtle way to remind viewers who’s behind the video they’re watching.
