What is a watermark?
Usually, watermark is a text of graphic file, which is drawn translucently in a video frame or graphic file. Commonly it is used to protect your copyright. Watermarks also can be used to add subtitles, any other text or create simple video effects, such as appearance or movement of a text or graphic file.
VideoCharge Studio allows you to draw watermarks in video file frames and in graphic file as well.
