Re: How do I create a video in video

Hi @markd32461,

 

What you will need is an advanced editing software, capable of adding layers of videos in the timeline. You can check this list of editing applications that work well with GoPro files as shared by a Hub member.

 

Hopefully this helps!

Re: How do I create a video in video

This Post has links to the editors https://community.gopro.com/t5/GoPro-Apps-for-Desktop/how-do-i-slow-down-video-playback-speed/m-p/26...

For what you want to achieve, DaVinci Resolve will be the best editor (it's a free professional editor). If you've never used a professional non-linear editor they can be a little daunting at first, but there are plenty of YouTube videos to help you learn it. Once you have a good basic understanding, you will be using one of the best video editors available (it's even used to create movies).

To get the video in video, you are going to be using what are referred to as layers. DaVinci Resolve will allow you to place one video track over the other in your timeline (timeline is where you are putting the clips together).

The video clip on the top will cover the video on the bottom. However, if you scale down (shrink) the top video, the bottom video will show. You can then position the top video to wherever you want it.

Be sure the video you are working on is highlighted in your timeline before making effects changes.

Here is a video you can watch that shows you how https://youtu.be/YTaCbJtZHwM

Re: How do I create a video in video

Awesome, hope it works out for you. There are a lot of settings and effects that you can do. Take it slow, don't get discouraged and use YouTube to learn all that you can. It's an incredible editor and considered by most to be the best color grading editor available, free or paid.

Keep it simple in the beginning, but over time as you learn how to master it, your creative options become almost limitless.
