    Post your main video clip on track 3.

    Post your PIP video clip on track 1 and click the 'Event Pan/Crop' icon on this clip. Set the Width and Height values of the Position portion of the screen to your desired postioning. And set the 'Stretch to fill frame' value to No.

    Good luck

    I can't find it, I must have my donkey head on.
    But while you're here perhaps you could tell me the relevance of using tracks 1 and 3..........

    Come on Ecca, even I can find it

    Right click over the clip, the 4th one down is 'video event pan/crop'

    4th blue highlighted item is 'source'

    click the + to get the drop down, 2nd one is 'stretch to fit'

    click on that, you get the drop down, choose no.

    Honestly, I send you here so I can stop answering your questions, and I still end up answering them

    Track 1 takes precedent over track 3 (track 2 is audio) so you only see track 1, unless you make the picture in track 1 smaller, or make gaps in it, in which case you can see 'through' it or either side of it, to track 3.

    Imagine you are looking down onto the tracks, if track 1 is on top, it obscures what is in track 3 underneath, unless the pic in track 1 is either smaller, so you can see track 3 on either side of it, or has gaps in it, in which case you would see track 3 through the 'windows'.

    Actually I have been doing this as I go along, to get the picture in track 1 to shrink but stay 'whole' I seem to need to have stretch to fit set on 'yes'. Otherwise I just reduce the amount, as in proportion, of the picture in track 1, not the size of it, if that makes sense.

    Having played around a bit more, it works like a zoom, you can do all sorts of combinations.

    Sounds to me like you're using an older version of Vegas (esp as you refer to it as Sonic Foundry - Sony bought it )

    Thanks for all answers, my version is indeed old, this will be rectified.
    Question 2 following on from last question;
    How do I achieve a change over time with effects ?
    I can change a scene to black and white but how, precisely do I get this to fade in , for example ?
