I'm using a picture in picture.  Luckily I have a bell that sounds in each so I match up the timing (like a clapboard).  However, how do I move the superimposed clip once I've attached it to the main clip?  I've tried grabbing and moving it, but the clip just doesn't go anywhere.  This seems like it should be simple, so I'm probably overlooking the obvious.  How do I move a layered clip after its been attached to another clip?

    After inserting the PIP, you should see it in the Viewer. You can drag inside the PIP to reposition it, or drag the corners to resize it.

     

    Here is a good illustrated tutorial.

    Sorry, I misunderstood what you were trying to do. 

     

    The trick is to add some black space at the end so you have room to drag the clip. You can find some black clips (and some other colors) under the Maps button on the middle toolbar. Add this black background clip to the end of your project and make it long enough so you will have some room to drag the PIP clip.
