If I add a 2nd video layer and reduce the clip size using PIP I know I can create a 3rd layer between the main video timeline and the layer containing the PIP to add a shape that forms a frame around the PIP to keep it from blending in with main timeline video. (See attached screenshot.)

However, if I need the third layer for some other element, I can’t do this. Does anyone have a workaround I’m not thinking of or, better yet, is there a way to apply an effect - as there is for FCPX - that puts a border around a PIP?

I’d consider pre-rendering the PIP element with a border.

Say you’re editing 1080 footage, put what will be the PIP on a timeline with a solid below it. Shrink the PIP footage to—say—95%. Render the PIP piece out to your camera roll at 1080 at the highest quality possible.

Then place the rendered-with-border piece on your timeline and shrink it to 40% or whatever size you want. By pre-rendering at 1080 and shrinking that, you’ll minimize any artifacting from prerendering.

Not a single-button solution, but it works!

Thanks, Dex, good workaround.
