Overlay video with image

  • Might want to highlight a particular part of the video, i.e. add a circle on top of existing video to point out some object.
  • Ideally one would be able to move the image (in the above example, the circle) around wrt. time as appropriate wrt. the video.


  1. Drag-and-drop image into empty space in a video track
    • If it's meant as an overlay, then the track needs to have higher priority than the track you want to overlay, of course.
  2. Click on the "image-video".
  3. Add effect "Position and Zoom" (or something along those lines)
  4. [OPTIONAL] To "animate" the overlay, you can make use of the keyframes-functionality:
    • Start out with a single keyframe (might require you to delete some existing ones)
    • Move the image to the point where you want it to be at the end of the animation/keyframe.
    • Click on the "Add keyframe" button once the previous step is done.
    • Go to the keyframes you have before the keyframe you just made
    • Then move the image, at which point you'll see an "arrow"/line from the final position to the where you're dragging.
      • This line indicates the transition the object will take, thus defining the animation.
