Adding Logo or Watermark on video

Post by Chaozu » Thu May 08, 2008 2:21 am

Sorry for my poor english :oops:

A feature for adding your own Logo or Watermark with color transparency to the video, please.

(and maybe it is already added, also a method for adding or splitting mp4 h.264 video)

Thx. :)

There is a video filter in mencoder called "delogo" which will do your job.

De-logo, it is a filter for removing or bluring logo, isn't it ? :?

I search a feature for adding logo on a video.
I start to make tv capture video (tv series, shows, reality games etc.) with my tv card.
So when reencoding the video in h.264, i also would like to put my own logo on it :wink:

Alright my mistake. It should be bmovl which reads bitmap from named pipe and displays it at certain place. I have never tested it and IMO you need to write a program to have this filter work for you.

Currently the simplest way to add watermark is by using subtitle. :D

Of course it is... but it would only allow to add some text.

I have tried at least a dozen different tools having the ability to add static or animated logo watermark, and none of them succeeded in batch operations without unpredictable and ridiculous program crashes.

Since MediaCoder is by far the best transcoding tool I have ever seen, it would be the most appreciated feature to be added in a future release.

PNG with transparent layer and animated GIFs should be supported for this purpose, with the following options:
- ability to choose the logo size with fixed X,Y pixels
- ability to choose the logo size proportionally to input movie X,Y size
- placement offset expressed with X,Y coordinates,
- placement offset expressed as a percentage of X,Y size of input movie,
- transparency selectable by PNG/GIF own transparency or by alpha.

Hope all of this would be kept in consideration for future development of MediaCoder.

Thank you for your kind attention.

Even if it uses VirtualDubMod as backend i would try to grab this feature (and not only) from FairUse Wizard.

Latest MediaCoder 0.7.0

needs - to add a logo.

As all you know - we can do it simply useing Lofo filter in VirtualDub, BUT - we;ll have to make the whole process of converting video.

So, we have 1.mkv.
Convert it in MediaCoder to 1.avi.
Use VirtualDub with Logo filter and converting it there again.
not good.

Is it possible to make a logo-filter for MediaCoder, so when we convert 1.mkv to 1.avi we already can add logo??

Thanx anyway..

As far as I know, vhook only works on Linux.
