In this clip I am going to add a simple text logo/watermark, (it could just as easily be a graphic), to iMovie 9.0.2 quickly and painlessly. And WITHOUT getting the blacked-out box over your logo.

The steps are fairly simple:

1. Load your iMovie project

2. Create an alpha, (transparent), Portable Network Graphics image in your favorite image editing software with the same dimensions as your project, (mine was 1280x720).

3. Copy/Paste your logo, or create your graphic.

4. Save file as png.

5. Drag this image on to your clip and adjust image runtime to your preference.

6. Edit Crop/Fit/Ken Burns and finalize project.

I use this same process when adding logos/watermarks to Final Cut Pro X. What has proven to work best for me is to create an alpha Portable Network Graphics, (PNG), image with the same dimensions as the project I am editing.

Hope this was helpful
