24's Picture-in-Picture Effects
Posted: 28 May 2006 09:26 AM
Hey Guys,

I'm a complete newbie to PiP and xml editing, and I made a post a little earlier. All I need is two frames of video running simultaneously, say, one in the top right and one in the bottom left on a black background. I saw on another thread that someone had managed to make a video involving motorbikes with similar effects. Is there any easy way of doing this? Surely someone's written a "24 xml script" designed for these PiP effects?

I have access to PowerDirector 5 (which is slightly more powerful), yet it doesn't have the same extensive xml editing community and hence less useable effects. Windows Movie Maker would be perfect if only I could get this PiP!

Thanks for any help you can give.

If all you want 2 windows, one in top left and one in the
lower right...here is some PIP+XML that will do that.
But...the video shrinks to fit in each window. If you are
fine with that, you are good to go. That is not the way they
do it in 24, and that becomes more complicated.
