Thread: need help having two videos playing at the same time.

  1. #1

    Default need help having two videos playing at the same time.

    Im trying to show one primary video and another video which is about 1/5 the screen size playing in the corner at the same time. I'm using Windows Movie Maker. Is this possible with the program?

    This is called P i P (picture in picture) and isn't possible in MM as I am aware. you would need 2 video layers to produce this effect and MM only has 1.

    You'll need a video editor with 2 video tracks as the previous contributor said and the ability to rescale the top clip and reposition it to somewhere else on the screen so it doesn't overlap or hide too much of the underlying clip. Try Ulead or APE 2.0.

    Go to Adobe.com and download Adobe Premeire.
    http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/

    They have a free 30 day trial. You must sign up for a free account.
    It is expensive, but the free trial will allow for what you need.
