I'm quite new to video editing so I like some advice on whether it is possible to embed one video inside another?
The kind of effect I'm aiming for is to have one video playing then have it pause whilst another smaller video pops out (like a caption I guess) which plays then disappears leaving the original 'background' video to continue to completion. The clips are reasonably short at around 2-5 mins. They are in various formats avi, mpeg xvid - all commonly used, however I expect to have to convert them all to the same format in order to do this.
What editing software (for windows) would I be able to do this in, if indeed it is possible!! I am reasonably technical but I don't want anything too over the top, unless of course I'm not going to do this with anything simple!!
Thanks for your help.
