Basic introduction on how to make Picture-in-Picture (PiP) video.

I'm going to explain you how to make a picture in picture video. I found it hard to find resources or tutorials on the subject but I found out eventually, and some ModDB bar goers wanted to know to so here it is and all with free tools LET'S GO!

Firstly we are going to download all the programs we need. VirtualDubMod (VDM from now on) is a fork of VirtualDub. VDM is a collection of modifications to the original VirtualDub, one which is the key to solving our PiP problem.

NOTE! Do not forget to download the bugfix/cvs patch, you will be seeing VDM crash enough as it is (more on that later)

The other tool you will need is AviSynth. AviSynth is a script language that allows you to edit videos without modifying the source file. It does this by treating the script file as the actual movie, apply all the script actions and plays the modified movie. Download it (get version 2.5) and were on our way.

This is an interesting tutorial as sometimes I have wondered how to make those picture-in-picture videos or how some picture-in-picture video was made.
