How to animate your logo in Clipchamp

Users can add logos to videos two different ways. Either import your PNG or JPEG logo file from your computer as an image with a transparent background, or use the brand kit feature where your logos are stored safely.

Note: The brand kit feature is exclusive to paid subscribers.

Step 2. Edit your logo length, position, and size

Before adding an animation to your logo, make sure your logo is the right size, position, and length. To move your logos position, freely drag and drop the logo around the video preview. Using the logo corners, drag them in and out to make your logo bigger (drag out) or smaller (drag in). Make sure to also edit the duration on the timeline to match your video length. Drag the green handles to the right of the toolbar to extend the length of your logo.
