I have a still photo of a podium. Then I placed my clip of someone speaking and it looks great. Now I am trying to place another object (video clip) in front of the person speaking to the side and it is now behind the person. Is there a function to place it in front or is there a certain order in the layering process?

Thanks for your time!

What the guy above me said has nothing to do with what you want.

Place above or belw the Podium object in the timeline, then position it how you want and then mask out the part where it's not to be seen.

Actually, while I was fiddling around I stumbled upon the title bar of the clip I was using and right mouse clicked it and lo and behold I got the option for "Bring it to the front" just what I was looking for.


Thanks for your help!!
