Overlay File Requirements - AWS Elemental Server

This is version 2.15 of the AWS Elemental Server documentation. This is the latest version. For prior versions, see the Previous Versions section of AWS Elemental Conductor File and AWS Elemental Server Documentation.

Overlay File Requirements

Set up the image files that you want to insert over your video as follows:

  • File type: Use files with the extension .png or .tga.

  • Aspect ratio: Use any aspect ratio; the aspect ratio of the overlay file doesn't need to match the aspect ratio of the underlying video.

  • Size in pixels: Use any size. If the overlaid graphic is larger than the output video frame, the service crops the graphic at the edge of the frame.


    In jobs that scale the video resolution, whether your overlay scales with your video depends on where you specify the graphic overlay. For more information, see Sizing Your Overlay to Account for Scaling.
