How to Add an Animated Overlay to Your YouTube Video

Once you have your own overlays downloaded and saved, here’s how you can add them to your YouTube video. Start by opening your video editing software and importing the animated overlays into the application. Here’s how you can use the different types:

Using Transparent Animated Overlays

To begin, start with the .mov files as they include a transparent background that won’t need to be removed. If you’re using applications like Adobe Premiere or After Effects, the overlays should simply work by placing the .mov assets above the edited timeline footage.

The next step is to scale and position the animated overlay to your liking. Once this is accomplished, you’re ready to render your video.

Using Green Screen Animated Overlays

In the event that your video editing application does not accept transparent .mov files, we have included .mp4 files with a green screen background.

To remove the green background, you will need to follow your video editing software’s instructions for removing a green screen or chroma key background.

Once the green screen background is removed, adjust the size, and position of the animation to your desired aesthetic. When you’re happy with how the animation is positioned and scaled, you’re ready to render your video.
