Sorry, there's a typo in command, instead of watermark.png it should be watermark.mov.
The reason I'm doing this is because watermark should be present only at the beginning of the video. The only way that I've found is to convert watermark to video file with 1 frame transparent fade out at the end of duration (5 seconds in my case) using . For generic watermark move file is pregenerated. But there's additional watermark that is dynamic and hardly available for pregeneration (there's ~1.5mln of them). So I want to convert and pipe it on the fly.
