"Step 1: Determine the format of the resulting video

"The first thing you'll want to do is determine the format for your resulting video. Cinelarra's "Set Format" panel makes this quite simple. For PIP, I set the size to height and width of the background video. For split screen, I set the width to twice that of the narrower track and then scale down the wider track.

" Step 2: Load your working files

"Loading your working files into Cinelerra's "Resources" window is simple and straightforward. Just be certain to set the "Insertion Strategy" to "Create new resources only" in the "Load" window. Select the files you want (they will be highlighted) and then click the "green check" icon to submit your files."
