I'm looking for something that is free and straightforward, that allows for a simple video overlay on another video in Windows 10. Here what I've tried: -Lightworks: crashes, and when not, puts a watermark in the free version -Filmora: watermark -Movavi: watermark -VirtualDub: not easy to use. I've spent already 2 hours downloading plugins and trying to figure out how to do the simplest thing.

So what I want is something like Movavi, but that doesn't put a watermark in the free version.

OpenShot is free, open source, and even has a portable version (no registry or file clutter) if you prefer.

From the homepage:

We designed OpenShot Video Editor to be an easy to use, quick to learn, and surprisingly powerful video editor

According to the features page, the software supports "Compositing, image overlays, watermarks".

You can overlay the two videos with OpenShot Just make a new project. Import both video files. Add the clips as two separate tracks (for example track 1 on bottom, track 2 on top). Change the layout of the top track to fill only a fraction of the screen (for example 25%), and change the position of the track (for example top left). Export the project as a new video file.


I would recommend you to download HitFilm Express. It is easy to use and offer all necessary options to edit video.
