Requirements for the overlay file

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

  • File type: Use .png or .tga.

  • Aspect ratio: Use any aspect ratio; it 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 overlay for scaling.
