Part 1. How to remove a moving watermark from a video?
Without wasting too much time, let's jump in and discuss how to remove a floating watermark from video with five simple methods.
#1. Remove moving watermark from the video with Wondershare UniConverter
Wondershare UniConverter is undoubtedly the best video editor for beginners and pros alike. This full-featured program lets you remove watermarks from all video formats like WebM, MTS, 3GP, MP4, VOB, etc. Just like HitPaw, you can losslessly remove the watermark by repositioning and resizing the lasso function to cover the moving watermark before entering the playback duration. But that's not all. You can also remove watermarks by cropping out the watermarked area or adding another watermark to cover the original one.

Below are the options:
Option 1. Remove a moving watermark from the video using Watermark Editor
Step 1 Run Wondershare UniConverter Watermark Editor.
Fire up Wondershare UniConverter on your PC and then open the Watermark Editor on the home window.
Step 2 Import your video file(s).
Next, click the Remove Watermark tab at the top and then drag-n-drop your video on the window. Another way to load a video is to click Add Files. Whichever the case, the upload speed is fast.
Step 3 Select the area of watermark.
Now tap Select Area to open the lasso tool and resize it to cover the watermark texts. Then, enter the playback time for the video watermark.
Step 4 Remove the watermark and save the video.
Last but not least, click Preview and then tap Play to crosscheck the video. If satisfied, tap Remove Watermark to erase the unwanted logo.
Note: Although this method is very effective, you can only remove watermarks for a specific duration, around 3 seconds. The same also applies to HitPaw Watermark Remover. In addition, this method can leave traces of blur. Fortunately, there are easy ways around these problems, as we'll see in the next option.
Option 2. Remove a floating watermark from the video by cropping
Cropping is an effective way to remove a floating watermark from a video. Note, however, that this method eliminates some sections of the video frame. Nonetheless, below is how to crop out moving watermarks and logos with Wondershare UniConverter:
Step 1. Run UniConverter and then tap Video Editor on the left pane. Then, click Crop to select the watermarked video on the cropper.
Step 2. After adding the video, you'll see two preview screens. In that case, drag and resize the red lasso tool on the top preview screen to crop out the moving watermark. You can also manually enter the crop dimensions.
Step 3. If satisfied with the changes you've made, click Ok and convert your video.
Limitation: While this method is very effective, you can't eliminate moving watermarks that run across the screen. In other words, you can't crop the whole video frame. It is easy to remove the moving watermark that moves at the top of the video.
Option 3. Remove a moving watermark from the video by adding another watermark
Another way to remove a moving watermark from a video is by adding another watermark. However, the result may not be as good as the other methods listed above. But still, you can make your new watermark more colorful and presentable to keep the older one in the background. Here are the steps:
Step 1. Launch Watermark Editor on the home window.
Step 2. Click the Add Watermark button and tap Add Files to load a video.
Step 3. Now you have two options. First, click Image Type and then tap Add Image to cover the dynamic watermark with an image logo. Ensure you crop and resize the image to cover the moving watermark.
Or, click the Text Type button and enter the watermark texts in the fields provided. As expected, you can also adjust the text color, size, font, and opacity.
Step 4. Preview the new video before clicking Add Watermark. It's that easy!

Part 2. Frequently asked questions about removing moving watermark from video
Q1. Which is the best watermark remover from a video?
Choosing the best watermark remover from the hundreds of options can be challenging. But although HitPaw Watermark Remover is good, you can't crop and edit video like you would with UniConverter. That's because most watermark removers don't support removing dynamic or moving watermarks. So, I highly recommend HitPaw and Wondershare Watermark Editor. But in any case, choose any of the two.
Q2. How do I remove watermarks from videos on Mac?
Again, removing watermarks from videos on Mac is a cakewalk with HitPaw Watermark Remover and Wondershare Watermark Editor. These programs run smoothly on most macOS versions, including Catalina, Big Sur, and Monterey. But due to the added editing features, Wondershare Watermark Editor simply has the edge over HitPaw.
Q3. How do I remove the iStock watermark?
An iStock watermark is one of the most difficult to remove. That's because free images downloaded from this library have multiple iStock watermarks. For this reason, you must choose an editor that supports removing numerous watermarks at once. Even more critical, the watermark remover must not leave any blur on the initially watermarked area. So, choose Wondershare Watermark Editor to batch remove iStock watermarks with lossless quality. Of course, HitPaw is also a great alternative.
Part 3. Conclusion
Now you know how to remove a moving watermark from the video. Adding another watermark is best to erase the dynamic watermark without blurring traces. Cropping is also another option if the running watermark doesn't cover too much video space. But if the dynamic watermark is a short one, let's say 3-5 seconds, then using Wondershare Watermark Editor or HitPaw Watermark Editor is the best way out.
