Its an uncommon practice as many people just upload a video without any template on it - unless its from a Live Stream or for a game that was at a 4:3 ratio. That said the Gamegrumps use a Frame in every gameplay video they do - including Steam Train and Grumpcade - which adds to their branding (aka if you see any video by them, you know IMMEDIATELY, who its by even if muted - despite their lack of facecam). It also would reduce people stealing your footage as they'd need to crop your video to avoid detection - which is a lot of effort. So in the end, I wanted to ask, does framing your video offer benefits? Fo my own brand I've done it, and some people have commented that they dislike it. Others however agree to the benefits it provides - provided it doesn't intrude too much onto the footage of the video itself. I suspect many people who dislike it are simply doing so out of habit - it different and therefore not correct. However, to break from the mold of the competition, shouldn't embracing the different be better to stand out from the crowd? I thought I'd open a chat and discuss it. I respect some won't do it, as they will see it as unnecessary effort for minimal result, but lets get all opinions in on it. What do you think?
