Make "Picture-in-Picture" Videos with VideoPad

Create picture in picture video with videopad for pip video editing The picture-in-picture (PIP) effect is commonly used in videos where more than one set of images is shown simultaneously in order to tell a story or convey additional information. Picture-in-picture is frequently used as part of news clips and in instructional videos.

The PIP effect can easily be achieved using VideoPad Video Editor software (version 3.0) by adding the video clip you want to overlay as your picture-in-picture onto the timeline so that it is positioned above the video you want to serve as the background in your video.

With this clip selected in the timeline, click on the "Effects" button then choose "Motion" from the drop-down menu at the top of the dialog box. Use the "Scale," "Position X" and "Position Y" controls to adjust the size and placement of your clip. You will be able to see the position and size change in the preview window on the right side of the Effects dialog box.

When everything is positioned the way you want it simply close the dialog box to apply your changes. Then, when you preview your movie, you will see your re-sized and re-positioned video clip overlaid on top of the larger clip.

Creating a picture-in-picture video in VideoPad is that easy. Use the same process to position images on the screen, making it an easy way for businesses to add their logo to videos.


  1. Done that on a video that I have on YouTube, starts at the 4 minute mark. Can be found at cool feature, now to figure out what other things that I can do with VideoPad

  2. ok, so I have figured out how to how do I position the clip where I want it to go on the background video?

    1. did you read the entire article? after right clicking the clip and selecting effect properties you use scale to determine the size of the pip vid, then you can use the position X and Y to place it where you want in the video by using those options slider bars.

  3. I overlaid images over a video clip but after I exported the video, the images did not show on the final version. Any help would be appreciated!
