Using overlay templates is a quick and easy way to turn your video clips into a unique film like a personalized news broadcast or sportscast. Overlays are simply transparent PNG files that are placed over your footage. This tutorial will show you how to import the overlay templates into VideoStudio, how to add them to your project timeline, and how to resize and reposition the image to give you the effect you want.

You can download a free sample of an overlay template and give it a try! Browse our store for more overlay templates.

    VideoStudioPro is so easy to work with. I’ve already used some of these features with a video I’ve done but it just shows to me how easy the program is to learn. Thank you, Corel.
