How to create an iMovie Picture in Picture

What is picture in picture?

This is a feature used in the media industry where one video clip is placed to cover the full screen while simultaneously having a smaller screen on the screen at a specific position.

The iMovie picture in picture effect is a feature that enables you to create a small window on top of another video window, i.e., a clip of video that plays in a small window on top of another video clip. Mostly applied to special effects videos. You can use this technique to follow up a narrator’s voice on the scenes happening on the main video or as in the case of “breaking news” where a small window shows current events as the studio narrates other news.

To enable the picture in picture effect in iMovie, you click on “iMovie” menu on the top left corner of your screen
