Video Overlay - Make a Picture in Picture Effect Easily
A Picture in Picture (PIP), also called a Video Overlay, is when two video clips share the display screen at the same time, one smaller and superimposed on a larger image. If your TV has this Picture in Picture feature, it means you can play a video game and keep watching your favorite TV show, or enjoy two sports games simultaneously. In video editing, you can use this Picture in Picture effect to insert an additional video (such as a webcam video) into the main video, just like you see in many online tutorials.
