On a Samsung notebook with Windows 7/64.
Program installed fine. Key was sent to a recycled address. Activated and started it with extreme ease.
Interface is self explanatory, except for the settings of the Watermark. You need to first highlight the watermark you want to change the settings for, and only then the options appear. A rather strange feature imho.
From here the problem started. This SW did absolutely nothing on my machine, nothing at all, it would not even create an empty file...
Removed by restarting.

The same companies who offer video converters & such on GOTD also often have a separate watermarking app, even though watermarking is often built into the converters & rippers. Their advantage is generally working with a large number of formats due to their use of ffmpeg. Most video editing software lets you overlay a 2nd video track -- as you move up the ladder feature & price-wise this evolves quite a bit into titling, gives you the option to move the overlay around etc., and/or there are specialized plug-ins & programs just for titles, overlays, & of course blue or green screen, which is overlay software focused more on turning whatever color in the overlay transparent. What's called watermarking for on-line video is often called Lower 3rd for TV, used most often for station logos or to advertise other programming, and that's how you might find it using Google.

Where video overlay gets complicated is when you're turning parts of the overlay transparent [green screen], when you're doing a lot of manipulation to the overly itself [e.g. some Titling software], and when you're tracking something on the lower or base track [e.g. tracking a face or license plate to apply a blur over it]. Otherwise it's pretty straightforward -- you display a picture or video on top of a video and encode the result. Getting the best results depends more on working with whatever you're overlaying on top of your video than the software you're using to create what's called a composite.

If you only remember one thing, remember that straight lines only scale well if they're perfectly horizontal or vertical. Scaling is important because you can't predict what actual physical size your video will be displayed at, especially if it's on-line video. In the broadcast industry [& with DVDs], this used to be hugely important when everything was shown on a TV or monitor with a picture tube -- nowadays the same techniques work well for scaling to a large number of devices & display sizes, but you may find a bit of overkill for example with DVD software.

What you want/need to do generally is feather the edges of your overlay, making them soft. If you want more sharpness, e.g. with text, use a feathered shadow that's usually centered rather than offset, & feather your main object a bit less. For text you usually have the colored body of the text, an outline for each letter, & then the shadow, each feathered as much as you can get away with & still look good. The background should be transparent -- .png files with transparency usually work quite well. You *may* also need to account for aspect ratios if your video is broadcast size [720 x 480 or 576], or if your video is anamorphic [a smaller actual frame size than what's displayed]. When you're working at DVD/broadcast frame sizes most software *will* stretch a still image in the process of turning it into video.

Being able to turn watermark display on/off can be nice, but it's not as flexible as having [at least] two tracks to work with in a video editor, & I've seen several offers [have taken advantage of a few too] for Nero Platinum, Corel Video Studio Pro, Roxio Creator, & home versions of Sony Vegas, for less than $50 -- sometimes $50 less after rebate. That's not to say Video Watermark Maker is bad, or not worth the price, especially as a GOTD, but noting that from a consumer standpoint it may not be the most value for your money.

Worked great the first use, added a logo watermark to an mp4 movie. No issues, wrote the file out without any issues.

This seems like a worthwhile single-purpose tool. I use Virtualdub for lots of things, but it's limited to avi or mpeg, and the built-in logo blending filter doesn't produce the best results.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system. The registration thanks in the name of "photo resizer"...
In my case the program returned to unregistered after the first restart.

By focusing on a several products, directing our efforts towards its development and support, and minimizing corporate overhead, we deliver maximum value to our customers A little bit of everything: from “Advanced Woman Calendar” over “Icon Maker” to “SoftSkin Photo Makeup”.


Today's software seems to be a rather new one with version 1.1.

You add a video. You can change (if you want) video and audio parameters from a video bitrate 100 over an audio bit 32 to the highest values.

The default output is C:\results. Who defines such folders???

you can add one or more watermarks, and have them displayed all the time throughout the video stream or only appear periodically.
Automated watermark scaling makes your mark appear of the same size regardless of video resolution, while convenient batch processing allows applying the watermark to all your videos with just a few clicks.


Automated scaling?

In the watermark panel you can define intervals. But you have to select the time for each interval. It would be better to choose every 30 seconds, 5 sec long, or every 5 minutes, 15 sec long...

You can add as many watermarks, as you like, you can add shadow or glow to the watermark text in every color.

Does what it claims with enough parameters to make each video absolutely unique to your flavor.

On an test with an .FLV file the water mark text appeared in italics (distorted?), but was entered as non italic. Changed aspect ratio??

I do not watermark my videos.
