A picture-in-picture effect is when two videos or images are shown at the same time with one smaller video or image on top of a larger one. You can use this picture-in-picture effect to insert an additional video or image into your main video to help you further illustrate or highlight parts of your story.
Select the clip in the secondary track and resize or edit it just like you would edit any other video clip. Some edits you can make:
- Reposition the picture-in-picture clip: Drag the picture-in-picture window in the Preview Monitor.
- Resize the picture-in-picture clip: Drag any of the clip’s corners in the Preview Monitor.
- Add cool transitions to the picture-in-picture clip: Click the Transition menu and choose any of the available transitions. For example, you can have the smaller image or video fade in and out by adding a Cross Dissolve transition to the clip.
