    overlay cropped clip on another clip with cropped portion of clip transparent

    BarbaraFEWW Level 1

      I am attempting to have one video clip that has been cropped appear as an overlay on a full screen clip. When I import the cropped video clip - the cropped area is not transparent - so my technique must be wrong. Please help.

      Here is how I am doing it now: I crop a clip, adjust the image with effects, render it and export it as a .wmv. I open the Premiere Pro project that has the full screen clip and import the .wmv. When I place the imported .wmv in the timeline- on a track above the full screen clip- I except the cropped area to be transparent so the full screen image shows through. Unfortunately, the cropped area appears as black and blocks the full screen image.

      Thanks for all help.
