Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a watermark, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Working with Type (2014).
- In our last example, we created a color overlay,…a bug to put in the corner.…But often times, you want a translucent element…that you can put into the corner, that video shows through.…Let me show you how to create a bug.…To do this, you're going to need a layered file or something…that you can cut up in a tool like Adobe Ilustrator.…Let's start by opening up a logo.…In this case, I have some fonts used…that aren't on the system.…But I'll just tell it not to resolve.…You'll notice that Photoshop makes it easy,…and it still shows you the font accurately.…
If you right-click you can rasterize that text.…And now it becomes pixels.…So it's not subject to changing to the font.…What I've created here is a series of layers,…and I want to make a few tweaks.…So really, we have an ellipse, and we have some text.…I need to split this up.…What I recommend is, if you have layer styles applied,…you actually convert those.…If you click on the layer style here,…you could choose "Create Layers."…It's not going to make it perfect, but it's going to do…
