    Newbie :- Wanting to put two video images on top of each other.

    I'm interested in making some videos , basically i have two mpeg videos and
    i would like to be able to put one top of the other , but i'm unsure of what
    software i should be using , i'd be happy to use freeware software on a look
    cost software package , http://www.pinnaclesys.com version 11 seems to be a
    well priced piece of software , but will it enable me to do this task and
    much more? any info or links would be welcomed.

    Ulead's VideoStudio does what you need, too. I think most non-free video
    applications do.

    The thing to do is visit the user support forums for each application in
    particular and see which has the most helpful responses, and the least
    amount of infighting.

    You can do that with a simple AviSynth script - something like this:

    vid_top = DirectShowSource("top-video.mpg")
    vid_bot = DirectShowSource("bot-video.mpg")
    StackVertical(vid_top, vid_bot)

    That assumes that you have a DirectShow MPEG-2 codec installed.

    You can find more information about AviSynth (and a download link) here:

    <http://avisynth.org/>

    Download VirtualDub as well, since that's a good tool for viewing what
    your AviSynth scripts churn out, and perhaps for saving the end result
    as an AVI:

    You could also feed the .avs script as a source to an MPEG encoder, such
    as TMPGEnc.
