OK, I must be missing the obvious ... when making a video, how do you...

... have a picture-in-picture, of a photo or video, either with yourself in the foreground or background? Or split-screen? And can this be done in real time, or does it have to be done post-production?

I asked about it in the thread below of MAVIC's, but admittedly he was asking something different of his own.

I have just the usual video / authoring tools to use: Quicktime, iMovie, VLC, etc. I'm a newbie to this, so go easy. smiling smiley

Thanks ... but that looks far more complex than I'm thinking of, and also I'd really like to be able to do it at the same time I'm recording. (Like Zoom, except Zoom only does screen share and not picture-in-picture.)

I think Logitech had some easy to use software for shooting videos like these from multiple cameras.

Example of what I'm talking about: [www.youtube.com] (very nice video on the subject, btw...)

... except I'd also like to be able to have myself take up the whole frame and have the Powerpoint (or other media) in the top left or top right corner.

Yep, easy-to-use would be nice, as would free ... so far I've been seeing some websites that either charge for this, or make you use software that again they charge for.

And also ... remember that I'm not shooting from multiple cameras, rather I have one thing on my screen and would like to be shooting video from a single camera at the same time, and have both show up in the video.

Keep in mind what you're showing in the PIP window. If you're presenting a Powerpoint in a PIP window, will it be large enough for viewers to see/understand?

It sounds like you might want to look into screen recording software, but that's not something I've used so I don't have any recommendations.

If it's Powerpoint, not likely to be a problem, as the viewers will already have a copy of it. If something else, it would be useful to be able to flip screens back and forth on the fly, so as to make it either larger or smaller.

Zoom has the option to take separate videos of your vidcam and the screen. Then in post (I use Screenflow, but iMovie will work), you put them together.

Okay, this looks exactly like the output I see on a podcast I frequent, and the creator swears by OBS Studio, Open Broadcaster Software Studio. Open Source, free, Max, PC and Linux.
