Overlay is widely used in videos, movies, and TV shows. Examples of common ones are the picture-in-picture feature and the TV station logo that is displayed in the top right corner of the screen. Picture-in-picture means that there is a small playback window in a large video playback window. The two windows are different video content and can be played simultaneously.
The overlay involves two windows. Typically, the smaller window is referred to as the foreground window and the bigger window as the backdrop window. Videos or pictures can be played in either the background window or the foreground window. We can frequently see videos with overlay in TikTok, Facebook, or Instagram.
