Creating a Picture-in-Picture Effect

Creating a Picture-in-Picture Effect

By Maliek Whitaker


This tutorial shows Pinnacle Studio users how to use the new Picture-in-Picture (PIP) features introduced in Pinnacle Studio 20. You can now create face cam or PIP windows right in the Preview window without having to make any changes on the timeline. Now when a clip that has assets beneath it is selected, PIP options are available under the Preview window. There are two options available – Scale mode and Crop mode – that allow you to adjust, resize or move your clip. You can also double-click on the clip and make additional changes if needed. This feature is great for game play videos, educational videos, special effects and much more. In this tutorial Pinnacle Studio Pro Maliek will show you how to make specific PIP screens which will improve your content.

    When I receive the “New tips and tutorials you’ll love!” E-mails, and I briefly browse thru the tutorials, it would be nice if the starting brief synopsis for EACH tutorial mentions the Application to which the tutorial applies. You do do that for some (I think I saw Corel Draw mentioned today), but I only use PaintShop Pro and Video Studio. Even if the inclusion is just “PSP9” instead of the full “PaintShop Pro 9”, that would be helpful. Had to access further to find out that this tutorial (above) is for Pinnacle Studio, which I no longer use.
