    How to add logo to video?

    I'm using VideoCharge Studio for it.
    Can you recommend me other tools? May be VideoCharge Studio is'n the best? :-)

    Re: How to add logo to video?

    I had a quick look at their website and whilst it looks like it can do what you want, there are plenty of much better programs available, in fact based on their website videocharge looks positively clunky to use and with statements like "people don't use video for logos but why not use and animated giff" don't know if I could trust this software at all. most video editing programs support multiple layers of video, so you can have a logo or any video file or animation sitting above the main video. It really comes down to how technical you want to get about it, but with the better programs you can create masks in much the same way as you would in photoshop, so you aren't restricted to specific shapes for your logo. In an ideal world your video editing application would be able to plug into after effects so you can put that extra level of polish on your logos and animation (and remember after effects offers native support for illustrator and photoshop so all your effects and layers can be imported. so that puts you in the realms of the top end in terms of editing applications. Avid, Final Cut, Premier etc. In the end though it depends on what your logo is and how professional you want it to look.
