Hey Guys,

I really want to add a picture to my video like in this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j5YuERq_qJo at 1:23 and be able to pause the video add my audio commentary. Is there anyway to do this? I've searched high and low on this topic.

I would really appreciate your help.

Thanks!

Higher numbered tracks overlay lower numbered tracks, to create a PIP (picture-in-picture).

If your still image has a solid background - which can be accomplished with a graphics tool - then that background can be chroma keyed out (so called "green screen"), leaving only the subject to be overlaid in PD. The background doesn't have to be green. Just be certain that it doesn't contain any colors that are present in the image that you want to retain.

As for freezing the action, one method would be to take a "snapshot" still frame from within PD, then insert that frame into the sequence and extend it for the desired duration.
