I am trying to have a picture in picture ( PIP) appear through a cube transition, but I only want the relevant part ( being occupied by the PIP) of the video to flip. In other words, the cube transition relies on the outgoing video and incoming video to fill two sides of the cube. As it rotates the outgoing video leaves on one side of the cube with the incoming appearing on the other side of the cube. When I apply the transition, it is flipping the whole screen and not just the small part where the PIP appears. I hope I managed to explain myself. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    You mean something like the sample below?

    Are you familiar with COMPOUND CLIPS? This can be achieved via a compound clip placed on top of the video you want the PIP overlayed upon.

    My expertise ends here... Hopefully someone comes by with the solution you seek.



    Here's another "CUBE" example...




    This effect can be achieved playing around with COMPOUND CLIPS.

    Hello to you dsimagry, I loved viewing what you had sent. I am a newbie and had initiated this reply with an intention of requesting you to make a screen recording of what you have described so that newcomers may see and learn.


    Or else you may please suggest some site which shows how to get this done.


    Thanks in advance.
