How do I: Insert logo in lower right hand corner?

Discussion in 'Professional Video Production' started by Dr. Tim Martin, Feb 14, 2006.

  1. Just wondering how I would go about inserting a logo in the lower right
    hand corner of a new video when using the iMovie program to create a
    movie on an Intel iMac? Does iMovie even do such a thing?

    I know I can insert the logo during the actual shoot via the camera
    itself but I'd rather quietly fade/slide it in and out throughout the
    video during the production process.

    I'll need step-by-step instructions if possible. Assume I would need
    to make a background transparent graphic and superimpose it over the
    actual footage?

    Thanks.

    iMovie exists in many rencarnations, so it is well possible that
    iMovie5 or 6 can do that. I am still happy to use iMovie2, so to do
    that sort of thing, I invoke QuickTime Pro (which allows multiple video
    tracks) and import the result into iMovie. If you have QuickTime, you
    can upgrade to Pro for $30.

  3. Thanks Dave. I did find information on the ImovieFAQ website at
    http://www.danslagle.com/mac/iMovie/tips_tricks/6022.shtml entitled
    "Adding a still image that plays on top of a video" and that
    information looks to offer instructions through QuickTime Pro (I do
    have).

    I also found information on the Apple/Support/iMovie at
    http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/effects/

    In iMovie v6 you add another Title template and insert any type of text
    (your website for instance) and drag it in front of the video clip
    where you want it to appear making sure the "Over black" is DEselected
    (to make it transparent I suppose).

    I haven't tried the latter yet but I will later today.
