Yes, it's possible to add a logo (png or jpg) image over the top of videos in Create.

If you're a Business or Business Platinum user you'll also have access to customized branding, which means you can use the Logo menu to reposition, resize, rotate, flip or change the opacity of logos. Instructions and images can be found below.

If you're a Basic (free) or Creator user, you can still add images to your projects via the Add Media button and place them in projects the same as videos, but you won't have access to the customization and resizing features shown below unless you upgrade.

Placing a logo over a video

To place your logo on top of a moving video, click on Brand kit tab on the left sidebar, then click on + add logos. (We have already added Clipchamp logos to the editor).

Choose the logo you would like to add from your computer and click Open

TIPS: Make sure it is a high-resolution png file or jpg file, and no larger than 5MB in size. If you would like to avoid an unwanted white or black background, ensure the logo has a transparent background.

Computer files opened to select Clipchamp branding

Once the file has been added, drag and drop it into the timeline above the part of the video you want it to appear on or click the add or plus icon.

NOTE: you can also easily change the logo image to another that you've uploaded. All you have to do is to delete the existing logo from your timeline, then add/ replace it with your preferred logo.
