this is how to make a logo for the side video using windows paint & compositelab & visionlab .

first make your logo in windows paint . It needs to be mainly be empty with a white background ( you'll see why a white background in a second ) then save it .

Second , open you lab product choose your video & your logo you made in windows paint . then put your logo at the top of the time line fit to the right hand corner then on your logo click matte then go to value key and choose white then change the transparency to about 35 and you are done .

Um, of course you can do this with a Mac. Not using Windows Paint, but then why would anyone want to?

If you use a decent image editor like GIMP (free) or Photoshop Elements, you can skip the value key entirely and just create a logo on a transparent background, using an alpha channel. Then when you import it everything but the logo will automatically be transparent.

When positioning the logo, its important to use the title safe guides to make sure it isn't too close to the screen.

I appreciate the thought behind this tutorial, but putting in a little more effort to include more details and perhaps cover something a bit more complex than a basic two-layer composite will ensure that the tutorial is useful to a wider audience. As it stands right now, it may be useful to a few beginners, but most users will already know this. Hopefully this doesn't discourage you from continuing to try and be helpful though. smile

Well like you said it helps out beginners. Having a tutorial like this helps out those who need it. You probably don't need it, but what about people who do? And besides that, if you complicate a tutorial too much, then it becomes hard for a viewer to learn anything.

An example would be very nice though. I've seen a few and that just seems to complete the tutorial.
