When generating a share, users can choose to add a burn-in watermark on their shared content. Burn-in watermarking is a process in which Runner creates a new video with the text burned in after the share is submitted. Burn-in watermarks can be added to video assets and are available for streaming and download. This section describes the process of creating a burn-in watermark.

Getting Started


Step 1

Create a share for the asset(s) you’d like to share.

Pencil.jpg Note: Only videos that have proxies are eligible for burn-in watermarking.


Step 2

Under ‘Visible Watermark Options,’ select ‘Burn-In’.


Step 3

Enter your text that will be displayed on each asset as the burn-in watermark. Users can change the location, font-size, and the opacity of their watermark.

To change the location of the watermark, click on the Location01.png button and choose any one of the nine locations Location.png.

To change the font-size, slide between A.png and A02.png Fontsize.png

To change the opacity, slide between Opacity01.png and Opacity02.png Opacity.png

Pencil.jpg Note: The preview window shows how the visible watermark will be burned into each video.


Step 4

When you have entered all information and edits, click ‘Share’ to share your asset(s).

Pencil.jpg Note: When a share is submitted, Runner will create a new video with the text burned-in. Upon completion, the burned-in video is shared with the recipient.

Pencil.jpg Note: Runner will initiate the process as soon as possible, but depending on the length and volume of asset(s), shares may be delayed between an hour and a day.


Step 5

An email will be sent to the specified recipients. After the recipients select 'View Assets' from the email, they are navigated to the share page where they can view the burned-in, watermarked videos.
