Create PIP Video

PIP (Picture-in-Picture) is a video effect often used to overlay multiple media files on a background clip, which allows you to display two or more clips on one screen at the same time. This effect has been widely used in educational contents, product introduction or video game.

How to add PIP effect

1. Open BeeCut, drag the background and overlay footage into the media area directly. Or you can click “Import” > “Import file” to import them.

2. Highlight the background clip and drag it to the video track below. Highlight overlay clip and drag it to PIP track.

Make Split Screen Video

Split screen video means that you can display simultaneously two or more clips on one screen. These videos are independent and you can play them at the same time. This video effect is used in various situations. For example, we might use it to make a contrast video by placing one clip on the left screen and another on the right screen, or show several video streams simultaneously on one screen to present a division visual effect.


1. Open BeeCut and import two different videos into the media area. Drag the first video to the PIP track and double-click it to edit.

Tips: You can make a split screen video which plays two frames simultaneously by finishing all the steps above. If you want to make a split screen with 3 frames, you only need to export split screen video and import it again. Drag it to video track and repeat step 3 and 4. If you want to make split screen video with more frames, please repeat the process.
