How to use Picture in Picture with Avid Studio
Adding a Picture-In-Picture (PIP) effect is a little different in Avid Studio than in previous Pinnacle Studio versions. The PIP effect is found in the Effects Editor. To access it either double-click on the clip that you want to apply the effect to or right-click on the clip and select “Open Effect Editor”.
Note: Remember Avid Studio uses a top-down overlay priority system. So track 1 overlays track 2, etc. Make sure to add the PIP effect to the track that you want on top.
Once in the Effects Editor select 2D-3D. Then select Studio PIP, or if you want a PIP window with a different shape you can select MultiShape PIP.
Once you select the PIP effect you then have the option to adjust the settings. The Default is a Top Right position PIP window with no shadow. There are other presets to change the PIP location such as Top Left, Bottom Left, Centered, etc. Additionally you can change the following settings:
4. Video (Transparency)
As with other Effects the Picture-In-Picture effect is keyframable to allow for maximum utility.
