Default How to add a watermark with Movie Maker

I found some great information on watermarking video with microsoft's Movie Maker. The information comes from the Movie Maker forums at http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net.


1. Copy your logo say mylogo.gif into C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\mylogo.gif
(For best results the logo should have a transparent background)
2. Copy this XML code into C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX\mylogo.xml

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<TitleDLL guid="{353359C1-39E1-491b-9951-464FD8AB071C}">
<Title name="@My Logo" iconid="13" comment="http://www.windowsmoviemakers.net/Forums/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=12624">
<Param name="InternalName" value="TitleMultiTitles"/>
<Param name="Description" value="Puts mylogo.gif in bottom right corner"/>
<Param name="LogoBitmapFilename" value="AddOnTFX\mylogo.gif"/>
<Param name="LogoRect" value="0.8 0.8 0.2 0.2"/>
<Param name="IsOneLine" value="true"/>
<Param name="BoundingRect" value="0.1 0.075 0.8 0.15"/>
<Param name="MaxCharacterCount" value="32"/>
<Param name="IsOneLine" value="true"/>
<Param name="BoundingRect" value="0.1 0.25 0.8 0.1"/>
<Param name="MaxCharacterCount" value="32"/>

3. Close and Restart Movie Maker
4. Add a title to the title overlay track of your project timeline using your customised MyLogo title - just put a space as the text.
5. Extend the title over the length of your movie.

You can adjust the position of the logo by modifying the LogoRect
<Param name="LogoRect" value="0.8 0.8 0.2 0.2"/>
Here 0.8 0.8 is the X,Y relative coordinates of the top left of the logo where 0 0 is the top left and 1 1 is the bottom right.
0.2 0.2 is the length in the X and Y direction.

I found this thread on another forum on adding a watermark to an .avi video file with VirtualDub and I thought I would share.
