Is there any way to put some drop shadow effect on watermark logo?
in most of the filters the logo must have black background and if you make the drop shadow in white it doesnt work because the drop shadow area takes the black levels so became like a border around the logo.

Is the logo flattened to the video?
You need to cutout the logo with an image editor. Then make the shadow.
but most of the filters wants total black background behind the logo. and bmp format so the drop shadow is a bit harder that way
Most video editors I know accept 32-bit PNG images with transparency, shadows are no problem.Got my retirement plans all set. Looks like I only have to work another 5 years after I die........
Can you guys show me a script
this is what I use
a1 = ImageSource("logo.bmp").ConvertToRGB32 mask_clip = Mask(a1, a1.GreyScale.Levels(0, 1, 10, 0, 240)) Overlay(a1, mask=ShowAlpha(mask_clip), y=340, x=0, \ mode="blend", opacity=1) ConditionalReader("C:\timecode.txt", "ol_x_offset", false)
I built the alpha mask from the logo image:
logo = ImageSource("LOGO.png").ConvertToYV12(matrix="PC.601") # the logo amask = Overlay(logo, logo, x=3, y=3, mode="add") # alpha mask includes drop shadow ColorBars(pixel_type="YV12") # a video to add the logo to Overlay(last, logo, mask=amask, x=20, y=20, opacity=1.0) # add the logo
