Hi everyone!

Is it possible to place a border around an input that is being used as a PIP (picture-in-picture). The first input is a desktop capture, and the second input is the webcam. I've been able to place the second input as a PIP over the desktop capture, however, I was wondering if I could add a border around the second input, so that people can see a clear distinction between the PIP and the desktop capture behind it.

Any thoughts on how to accomplish this please?

Many thanks in advance.

We use a PNG with just the border overlayed on the video. That's the way it's done if you use PIP virtual sets as well.

Here's a slightly different approach that does not require a graphic image to be prepared.

Create a "color" input and layer it behind the live video shot.

Then crop the live shot by the desired width of the border.

As long as they are placed co-incidentally (same X/Y) the underlying color will look like a border.

sample

This example uses color bars as the border.
