    Background: Complete newbie to video editing except splitting video into parts with Boilsoft video spiltter

    Goal: To add a simple text watermark to the bottom of my home-made video . No font style, no art work is required, as long as it's functional and simple. I also want to add a solid rectangular box to my video (like mosaic)

    Is there any simple software to make it? I don't want to write any scripts or code

    Thanks

    If you are worried about people copying your work then you could add a hidden watermark.

    Search for stegovideo for avisynth or digimark in photoshop.

    But a visible watermark? Why mutilate your work?

    Good point! However I doubt he is worried about someone stealing his work, otherwise he wouldn't be posting it.......
    Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........

    Perhaps.

    I don't know when I hear about people who have this urge to deface a video with that kind of garbage I get recollections of dog walks and popular bushes.

  5. I couldn't agree more. He's not doing it for himself because why would he want to watch his own ruined video? So, I suppose he wants to do it for uploading to YouTube or some such. All it will do there is make people not want to watch it. It certainly won't keep anyone from stealing it if they want. If the text is an ad for a site or something like that or something purely decorative to identify the video as yours, you could always add an annotation or subtitle without wrecking the actual video.

    Kenny1999, In sept you wanted to remove the watermark -> https://forum.videohelp.com/threads/362436-ffmpeg-watermark-issue?p=2348836#post2348836 and I explained how in 2 minutes with FFMpeg. Now you want to make a watermark/Logo and it still takes 2 minutes with FFMpeg but if you want a custom program... good luck.

    With FFmpeg:
