    Is there a way to create a picture-in-picture video where the smaller picture is exactly the same as the larger one but it is a close up?

    For example, I would like to record a guitar video. I would like the smaller screen to be a close up of my left hand so viewers can get a closer look at what I’m playing. The larger picture would be a body shot view of myself playing the guitar while the smaller picture would be a close up of my left hand.

    Is this possible to with my iSight camera with iMovie, Quicktime, etc? Obviously, the two pictures would have to be synced because it’s the same musical performance.

    Thanks!

      Sure. Just use the same video for the picture-in-picture. Take one video, put it in iMovie. Then take that same video and drop it on top as a picture-in-picture.

        Cool. But the smaller picture. Is there a way to create a close up of the smaller picture?
