Sequence Editor (pip effect)


I was wondering if anyone knows if it’s possible to add to pictures on top of each other in the sequence editor. Mainly to have a “picture in picture” effect (kind of what you see in the news next to the presentor).

I’m editing a animatic right now and I thought… why not use blender for this?? :slight_smile:

Yes, use the Compositor Nodes to scale, translate, and overlay the video together.:smiley:


In the sequence editor the setup looks something like this:

Hope it helps, happy blending!

thanks everyone, got it solved with a reply at, but you guys said the same thing :slight_smile: So thanks for confirming the method.
