    I think OP should consider buying a newer version. . . admitedly 20 looks attractive, but your filming (time and effort) isn't "free" - and newer software should run better and have extra features you'll wish you had. Get Production suite for the first purchase . . . it has additional stuff.... and should help.
    v 10 has PIP and v11 is about 40 (Amazon) - then for a little more there is v12 production suite. This has far animated text effects. These may help to grab the attention of YT viewers. v10 and before had relatively simple text.

    While I too occasionally feel like wanting to argue (bad manners, I know, always better not to bust a blood vessel) with vidmanners, this time I fully agree with him. Get a newer version, preferably Movie Studio Platinum 12, maybe even the Suite. You'll want to do that soon enough anyway. It has 32-bit AND 64-bit versions now and like the man says, you find good offers already, even though it was released fairly recently. May have some bugs still, but I trust the new builds from SCS and 3rd party plugin vendors will fix most of them.

    I can't disagree this that and I should probably recommended the newest version. BUT the question was will it do PiP and the answer is yes.

    But check the cost of an old version plust the upgrade. this may work out cheaper than latest version straight off.
