Software tools for editing images or videos often leave a watermark embedded into your work, ensuring their own brand visibility and limiting how you can use your creation in public. While watermarks are commonly encountered in this industry, many content creators hate them and try in every way to eliminate them from the final version.

If you are using CapCut for media creation, you might be in luck since this editor allows you to remove the watermark without too much effort or a need to use external tools. Learning how to take advantage of this possibility is very important, as even the best-composed video can be ruined by an untimely appearance of the CapCut logo. With this in mind, we will show you two different mechanisms that allow you to get rid of the watermark and finalize your video the way you originally intended.

What is CapCut and What Is It Used For?

CapCut is free editing software that brings advanced functionalities in a format that can be readily used by relatively inexperienced users. The app works great on a mobile device or a PC, which is why it is massively popular among online content creators, especially those who choose TikTok as their primary outlet for presenting creative work. Since CapCut is made by ByteDance, the same Chinese company that owns TikTok, it’s only logical that the latter will be used as a companion app whenever short videos need to be produced quickly and with a minimum budget.

In addition to a wide range of editing tools and ready-made templates, the app also comes with some smart features such as speech-to-text, photo colorization, and image stabilization. With CapCut you can quickly process raw footage made with your smartphone and combine multiple clips into continuous video. It may not have the same features as professional-grade video editors, but it contains all the basics and is so user-friendly there are practically no skill barriers to adoption. It’s most commonly used to edit short clips for social media, but it can do a decent job even if you are working on a longer format that includes material from multiple sources.

Why Does CapCut Add a Watermark to Your Video?

If you tried editing your recordings with CapCut, you probably noticed that finished videos are marked with a CapCut logo embedded at the end of the clip. Watermarking is a standard procedure aimed at protecting videos from unauthorized copying and also to ensure that the editor software brand is as visible as possible. In particular, CapCut utilizes watermarks in two distinct ways, at the end of the video and inside all video templates you can find in its online library.

The videos created with CapCut are often shared online, so the watermark tells everyone which software was used for the editing phase. The viewers will be reminded about CapCut, and possibly motivated to download and try it. This applies to all videos (unless a watermark is manually removed), so the cumulative impact of this feature on the app’s popularity is significant. Since the purpose of the watermark is primarily promotional rather than intended to prevent public use of videos, they are essentially optional. They can be taken off the video without having to pay extra.
