How to make layered music videos?
January 9, 2013 5:12 PM   Subscribe

What software do you use to make layered music videos as simple as this, or more complex like this?

Preferably looking for free software, but the cheaper/easier the better.

According to this article, the guy who made these videos did it with an old copy of Sony's "Vegas Pro" and junky old laptop.

iMovie on the Mac, Vegas Pro on Windows, should do the job. But really, this is just four videos on top of each other---just about any free video editing program should do it.

check out my question that I asked a while back :

As user Fake answered:

You can do this in Premiere. Load all four clips onto the timeline, each onto its own video track. Scale each one to 25% size. Position them (one into each corner) using the transform controls or your monitor window.

I think I was looking for the work track, instead of layer.

Found this video

"important to do a signal which can be seen and heard to line up video" Listen to the audio clip in headphones while signaling in 2+ tracks

Is their any software that auto completes this signal / lines up video for you?
