Add Shadow to PIP for Depth

Hi everyone,

I've looked for the answer and haven't found it so I'm helping someone can help.

Without 3rd party add-ons, how can I add a simple shadow to a PIP? It's not a border I'm looking for, but a shadow to seperate the PIP item from the background on the screen.

Thanks very much!

If the PIP was done with Track Motion, it has 2D shadow and 2D glow options.

Hi Mike,

Perfect! Thanks very much. I knew it was in there somewhere but I have been looking for the effect using Pan and Zoom. I was also doing a web search for shadows in Pan and Zoom - I guess that's what I wasn't finding my answer.

Once again, thanks.

-Mike
