    Can I pause a picture-in-picture video?

    GertrudeGringleII

      Hello,

       

      I'm really new to Premiere Elements 10, so forgive me if this is an obvious question.

       

      I would like to have a background video, with three smaller videos liuned up along the left edge (using a picture-in-picture idea), but not have the three small videos play immediately. What I woudl like to do is have them show as if they were paused on the first frame, then play each one in turn.

       

      I suppose I could do this by taking a snapshot of the first frame, adding that as a static image, then adding the video itself at the point where I want it to start playing, and hide the static image, but that sounds like a lot of work for the effect. I was hoping there ight be an easier way to do it.

       

      Thanks for any help.
