Creation of Watermarks

 

Watermark Master enables adding watermark to a movie (to its every frame) or a graphic file. As a watermark one can use:

 

  • Text

For a text one can preset all basic attributes (font, color, size, etc) as well as rotation angle, transparency, stroke color and width. Starting from version 1.1, a text can be filled with gradient or pattern. A text may include dynamic variables: name, extension, duration, size, date, frame width and height of an original or produced file.

 

Simple text, contents of a text file or SRT file can be the source of a text watermark. When it is necessary to process a great number of files and add a text watermark to each of them, it is convenient to make a text file the source and assign its every next line to be a watermark for the next generated file.

 

When using a SRT file as the source, the text is displayed for the time period that is specified within the file. You can use either existing SRT files or made by your own ones to create custom subtitles.

 

  • Image

An image can be resized and rotated arbitrary. Also for images one can fix transparency level and transparent color.

 

  • Animated GIF

An animated GIF can be resized and rotated arbitrary. Transparency level, single or infinite repetition also can be assigned.

 

  • Video clip

A video clip can be resized and rotated arbitrary. Transparency level, single or infinite repetition also can be assigned. The audio stream of the added video clip can be put over the original file's one, and it's volume level can be preset as well.

 

  • Rectangle/Ellipse

For a rectangle/ellipse one can preset dimensions, color, transparency level, border color and border width. Besides, a rectangle/ellipse can be stretched along the full frame width or height of a processed file. Starting from version 1.1 it is possible to set corner radius for a rectangle.

 

Display time can be assigned to any kind of watermark, which makes possible adding watermarks to a movie's fragment rather than a whole movie. The beginning and ending of watermark drawing can be protracted for preset time, which produces effect of smooth appearance and disappearance. Position of watermark is specified relative to a number of predetermined points, which makes possible to display watermark in the same frame area regardless of frame dimensions. Watermark Master allows to add any quantity watermarks at once.

 

Starting from version 1.1, Watermark Master includes a number of effects that can be applied to watermarks:

 

  • Stroke - accentuates the edges of a watermark, includes a broad set of parameters

  • Bevel and Emboss - imparts relief to a watermark

  • Drop Shadow - adds drop shadow to a watermark

  • 3D - imparts volume to a watermark

  • Rotate - rotates a watermark in three-dimensional space

  • Curvature - imparts curvature to a watermark.

  • Tile - multiplies a watermark and fills the image with its copies.

 

 

Dynamic Effects

 

Watermark Master enables to apply one or more dynamic effects to a watermark. A dynamic effect implies variation of the watermark in time. One of the simplest examples is smooth appearance or disappearance of a watermark.

The following dynamic effects are available in Watermark Master 1.2:

 

Fade - produces an effect of smooth appearance and disappearance of a watermark. In contrast to the previous versions of the program, now this effect can be applied to any interval of the watermark display time.

 

Motion - enables to move a watermark from one point to another with a preset speed. Applying to a watermark a few effects of the same kind, one can make the watermark follow as much composite trajectory as he likes.

 

Key Point - provides ability to preset a time period during which the watermark will look different relative to its initial appearance. This makes possible to create watermarks that blink with different colors, vary in size, etc.

 

Parameter - allows to select any available parameter of the watermark and continuously vary its value with a preset speed for a preset time period.

For example, with this effect you can make the watermark smoothly contract to the size of a spot and expand back to its original size, gradually change its drop shadow color or stroke width, etc.

 

All the aforesaid effects can be used both separately and together, which enables to produce a great number of visual effects.

 

 

Dynamic Watermarks

 

Watermark Master enables to create dynamic watermarks, that is watermarks that alter with the lapse of time. In addition to videos and animated GIFs, a watermark of one more kind can be created - creeping line. It represents text string that slides along the frame at preset speed.

 

For this kind of watermark one can fix traveling speed and direction, single or infinite repetition as well as repetition delay.

 

 

Blurring Areas of an Image

 

Watermark Master provides ability to blur any area of a video frame or graphic file. One can assign blur strength and display time to a blur area.

 

 

Removing Static Objects from an Image

 

Watermark Master enables to remove static objects from a video frame or graphic file. At that the removed pixels are compensated with the pixels adjacent to the removed object.

This feature is applicable for removing logos, codec artefacts and other unwanted objects. 3 operating modes are available for this filter: search and fill (compensation) of a static object inside the specified area, fill of the specified area by a selected color and complete fill of the specified area.

 

 

Remote File Processing

 

Watermark Master supports hidden processing of files. To perform any operations with files there is no need to start the main application. It's enough to copy all files to some folder, specify file mask (to filter files to be processed or, on the contrary, excluded from the process), enable processing of subfolders and creation of log file (where all performed operations and errors will be registered) in case of need, select one of preset configuration files and that's all.

 

The present functionality is eminently effective when using Watermark Master on remote server. It enables to process files remotely, by simple copying (uploading) files to a specified folder. Configuration file, where all parameters of the process are kept, has clear XML format, which enables it to be set remotely too.

 

 

Conversion of Videos and Images

 

Watermark Master provides ability to convert videos and images from one format into another.

All parameters of encoding - frame rate, bitrate, aspect ratio and others - can be preset. The program allows to resize image, apply filters to correct appearance of every frame, use external video codecs (DivX, Xvid and others) for video compression.

For creation of WMV files, the program includes a broad set of parameters including "two-pass encoding" feature that enables to produce more qualitative image. Ability to create videos that contain multiple video streams of different bitrate is included as well.

 

Some information about a processed video file (author, copyright, etc) can be added to its header provided that target format supports this functionality.

 

The application is particularly optimized for processing a great number of files (batch processing). It enables to process folders with files and subfolders inside. At that the produced files are saved subject to hierarchy of files and subfolders in source folders. File mask can be specified here in order to select promptly the necessary files to be processed.

 

Watermark Master can process more than one profile at once. Each profile contains information concerning the operations to be performed with files. Thereby, using several profiles, one can create several files of different type, different bitrate, etc by one click.

 

 

Creation of Thumbnails

 

The program enables creation of thumbnails for video clips and graphic files. Thumbnails can be created in any quantity. For videos one can create thumbnails out of the first frame, extract frames regularly (by setting time intervals) or extract a rigorously defined number of equidistant (by time) frames. Distance between frames is calculated as duration of a processed file divided by the specified number of frames. Names of the produced thumbnails can be set in special way or depend on the name of a processed file.

The process of thumbnails creation can be combined with encoding process.

 

 

Video Editor Functions

 

Watermark Master includes a broad set of tools for video editing. With Watermark Master one can extract the necessary scenes from videos, remove the needless scenes from videos, apply the Crop filter (create video file based on a part of every frame of an original video).

Moreover the following montage functions are included: creation of videos without sound, stacking of an audio file over the audio stream of a processed file (with adjustment of volume level), replacement of the audio stream of a processed file by any audio file, displacement of the audio stream of a processed file (in case of mistiming of audio and video streams), insertion of video scenes, insertion of full-frame images (with assignment of display time).

Video processing settings can be kept the same for a group of source files or specified individually for each of them.

 

 

Editing of DVDs

 

Watermark Master can handle DVDs as well as VOB and IFO files. The program allows to parse solitary VOB files, extract chapters from them and save chapters as separate files or join them into a single file.

 

 

Adding Subtitles

 

Watermark Master enables to put subtitles onto a video film. As the source one can use DVD subtitles or SRT files.

For DVD subtitles one can preset color, rotation angle, transparency; dynamic effects can be applied to them as well. For subtitles taken from SRT files it is possible to preset all properties and apply all effects that can be preset and applied to a text watermark.

 

 

Player

 

Watermark Master can play all kinds of video files and DVDs as well as display graphic files. Besides, the application includes ability to preview results before encoding.

 

 

Extra Features

 

The program includes Wizard that helps to use it in full measure without special knowledge and study of the program itself. Wizard provides access to all main functions of the application.

Watermark Master allows to control file encoding process: when in use, the process can be paused, hidden in system tray or terminated.
