Overlaying a video

Overlaying a video is a powerful feature that gives you many options. You can create interview style videos where the clips are side by side. You can also create educational videos and add some flare to the background of the video. If you would like you can also pop up images at certain times and overlay the images on top of the video for some seriously engaging content.

Here is three solid reasons why this is a useful feature.

1. Side by Side

Interview style video content is engaging and now easy to make with Story Creator.

2. Video on Video

Just like in the demos. It adds flare to your videos because you can add stock video in the background.

To keep my audience engaged and excited for the weekly episodes I use Motionbox to promote the content. It's super easy to trim my podcast and add a visualizer.

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
