I use Quicktime 7, primarily because I bought it way back when, and also because I have trouble viewing movies I’ve made in Matlab with the more recent versions of Quicktime for Macs.
I followed the steps from here: geniusdv.com: Including watermarks which can be summarized as:
- Prepare the watermark/graphic.
- Open the graphic you’d like to add in Quicktime 7.
- Save it as a movie (so it’s in the same format as your other movie).
- Select the graphic using “Edit»Select All” then “Edit»Copy”.
- Add the watermark to your big movie
- Open the big movie
- Add the selection using “Edit»Add to Selection & Scale”. This uses whatever was most recently copied and dumps it in.
- Adjust the watermark settings using “Window»Show Movie Properties”.
- Make sure the watermark is on top: The watermark will most likely be “Video Track 2″, so select this, then verify that the value in the box after “Layer” for video track 2 is smaller than the value in the box after Layer in “Video track 1″. This ensures it’s on top.
- Scale it. Chances are the watermark isn’t the size you’d like. Selecting “Video Track 2″, adjust the box after “Scaled size” until you get something that looks nice.
- Offset it. To reposition the watermark, change the values in the X and Y boxes after “Offset” until you get it where you want it
- Save new movie. Save your move with a new name (just in case something didn’t work, don’t overwrite the original) and then verify that the watermark looks right.
