Not long had Movie Studio 16 and am trying to get my head around PIP. What I am trying to achieve is to position the PIP in one of the corners of the main video not slap bang in the middle of the main video. I would also like to be able to change the size of the PIP. Sorry if this topic has been covered befor.

Hi Dave,

I don't have any of those "fancy" video replies like the Doc has, so hopefully can assist this way.

On the track with your PIP, make sure it is Highlighted. Then, on the "LEFT" side (where the hamburger button is, or the shown icons for use), click on the "fx" symbol. Again, do this on the track fx, and not on the clip. That should open the "dialogue box" for the "dockable window", of which then, you should be able to use the "Preview Window" and not only re-size, but re-position as needed. Not sure if the Doc has a tutorial on this, though I do believe there is one on the VegasCreativeSoftware forum site under "Tutorials", as well as one on their YouTube channel (listed as Vegas Pro).

Plus, think this may have been asked on this forum, so have fun and do a little search - find - conquer! :)

Happy Editing!

Thanks @mmcswnavy24 :)

To further what The Chief has explained, here are some screen shots.





If you ever need to do more complex "Picture in Picture" or Multi-Screen effects, I recommend watching/reading this tutorial.
This tutorial uses the traditional Event Pan/Crop and/or Track Motion tools.

Mike, Many thanks for the prompt and very helpful response. I was initially a bit puzzled by your reference to the "hamburger" icon, but now I can't see that icon without seeing a hambuger os possibly a "Big Mac". Even my wife was impressed by the results !
