Early on, I didn't feel like having to put a watermark as I worried that it might disrupt my videos. Today however, I want to be a director so I ended up having to make a watermark that would stand out. How do you think of this? Transparency: r0 g162 b232.

Well the watermark is kinda unreadable to start, but don't worry trial and error will fix that.

To start the watermark doesn't really need to be fancy, its encouraged (what you did) but simply using the game font to make it feel like it's part of the game is a good direction to go.

Also knowing what software your using to render your video's help like if your using sony vegas or camtasia as those programs (I cant say for camtasia) have a way to put the text in better

If your shooting for director another tip is to render video's in HD just 720p will do, I know for older games there's really no point but it really shows and helps.

you can check anyone's video you'll see what I mean, if you commentate you can simply audiomark your video by stating "Brought to you by Gameanyone.com"

Like "Hey everybody welcome to my let's play of (Insert game here), this game is Brought to you by Gameanyone.com" as an example.

The watermark just needs to be readable and it just needs to look okay you dont have to do fancy stuff with it. You can also just do an audiomark.

Really bad, to be honest. It's great to pretty it up, but start with what you can do and then tinker with it on your free time. For example, I've messed around with animated watermarks, but I can't get 'em down enough to where I'd feel comfortable putting them in my videos.

The thing is, it looks so pixelated it's unreadable. Try not to do anything fancy since there's nothing wrong with being simple.

^ It's nice; as he said, but don't make it fancy. I added a simple watermark to my videos.

I'd go with a font that isn't Unown.  As much as I like Unown text, it's very hard to read in most situations.

Switched to ArcadeClassic font a year ago, settled for a letterbox on the top. Stopped using the Unown font
