Add text and pictures to your video

← Back to documentation overview

If you are completely new to Videopath, it might be best to start with our Getting Started tutorial.

Adding text and pictures to your overlays enrich your video as well as provide more detail and information you want to share with your audience. After dragging a marker to a specific moment in your video you can start building up your overlay.

Once your marker is in position, an empty overlay will appear. Now you’re ready to add content to your video. Learn more about Markers and Overlays.
