Here's a great tutorial on how to create a video watermark to protect your video content.

This tutorial is a bit unusual, because it was done by using Photoshop CC for windows on a Mac.  I record and edit all my tutorials in a software product called Screenflow which only runs an Mac OS X.  So, I decided to see if I could run Windows on a MAC and still use Screenflow to create this tutorial.

play_watermark_tutorial.pngIn this short video tutorial, you will learn the following:

  • Using a Screenshot to capture content to produce your video watermark
  • Configuring Google Images to display only high resolution image files
  • Creating a video watermark using Photoshop
  • Importing your watermark into your favorite video editing software

ScreenFlow.pngAs a Quick Side Note:  I teach an amazing hands-on class for learning ScreenFlow. Training options include 'online, on-site, or in a classroom'. If you're interested in creating the absolute best training videos, please contact me.

Also, if you are a corporate video producer / editor, check out a service called VideoBlocks.  It's invaluable for those in need of stock footage, AE templates, audio loops, and sound effects.  Their yearly pricing is a good deal considering the quality of footage and amount of content available.  They also offer a free trial!

GeniusDV offers classroom and on-site style Photoshop for Video training courses.
