My video is 1080p HD, shot with GoPro. Using GoPro Studio I have removed the fisheye effect and exported it in AVI format.

Using Pinnacle 17 (or another tool, but this one has to be free), I want to crop some part of the entire image, then zoom it (a little), then center it above another clip.

I don't know how to do this. I've tried effects in "media editor" but so far I only ended with standalone pictures.

Which version of Pinnacle Studio do you have. If it is plus or better, you can use the same technique as covered in this answer. Keyframe animation is the general way to accomplish this. If you don't need it animated, it would just be a simple scale and crop operation. I don't know where exactly the parameters are in Pinnacle studio, but they should be fairly easy unless the software is really bad. – AJ Henderson Apr 26 '14 at 17:42
Thanks for the idea but I found another way. – Francois B. Apr 29 '14 at 9:41

I used Picture in Picture to display my orginal video, cropped, zoomed and where I want above another picture or video.
