      Hi All,

       

      I am starting a videography business, my service will be recording a lot (600+) of short videos (30-60 seconds) each day. I would like to have my videos watermarked with my logo but am trying to find a way to do this without having to put each video into my editor. Is there a way to capture my videos with an image overlay or watermark without degrading the quality of the video?

       

      Thanks a lot in advance!

      Hi Gson-

      While it won't add a watermark while recording, Sorenson Squeeze will add a watermark while transcoding. Just set up a watch folder so that when you dump files from your camera into the folder, Squeeze transcodes and adds a watermark automatically.

      Thank You Mike! I signed up for a free trial and this seems like a fantastic reccomendation!  Do you know if the speed of the ecoding varies by the speed of the computer? I thought I saw that it encodes faster then real time, but on my computer now (nothing special) it is taking about 1.5 minutes for a 35 sec video.

      It not only depends ont he sepeed of your computer, but also the type of compression you're using. You might want to try a few different codecs and bit-rates and see if that helps.

      Lots of video editing software allows user to import logo or photo into the video, of course the quality won't being affected.
