4.2/5 - (16 votes)

The overlay is one of the capabilities of mobile device video editing software that may merge a video or image item in a given frame or display. 

It may be utilized in many methods in this overlay function. For instance, to merge two or more images, logos, or stickers to a movie on a single screen, insert extra video effects, edit clean movies, create text as video titles, etc.

Just that, not everyone has an overlay capability in video editing software. If you assume this overlay function can only be found in premium video editing applications, you’re mistaken. In truth, this functionality still does not exist in the premium editions of InShot and FilmoraGo applications

The intriguing truth is that there are a number of free Smartphone photo/video editing software with an overlay capability, including VN Videographer and CapCut, previously branded as ViaMaker. 

We provide you an illustration of how to create an overlay with the CapCut editor in the following post.
