To start creating a cinemagraph in Cinemagraph Pro, you import a video recorded on a tripod and select a frame for your still image. Follow the steps below to add text or a logo to your still image:

  1. Drag the still image selector (white marker) anywhere on the timeline to select a frame for your still image
  2. Export your still image under the timeline tab
  3. Add the text or logo to your still image using the photo editor of your choice
  4. Import your still image under the timeline tab

Masking will determine which areas of your cinemagraph are in motion. As such, make sure that your text or logo does not interfere with the area you want to mask in Cinemagraph Pro. If you do want your text or logo to overlap with the motion in your cinemagraph, you can add it using a video editing application such as Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere Pro or iMovie.

Business plan subscribers can also apply custom watermarks to uploaded cinemagraphs on flixel.com for sharing on the web.
