What got me going about this is that I have an idea for a short video project about memories that are gone or almost about to evaporate into history.
I can see the need to do a lot of video in picture frames.
I generally forget how to do it picture in picture. I do read the manual but it never sticks in my head. Making a screencast video on the process certain helps retention.
A Couple of Reminders:
You need a .png file with a transparent area. You can use a program like Irfanview, Snagit Editor or one of the online photo editing programs to create your .png photo.
Aspect ratio – if your video is 16:9 widescreen and your image frame is in the 4:3 aspect ratio you are going to have issues. Match your frame to your content or your content to your frame but do not stretch a video to fit inside of a transparency area, especially if you have people in it.
