If you wanted to zoom the main picture to the top right of the screen whilst another one starts playing full screen, (like how they do in reaction or gaming videos.).. how would you do that? Picture in Picture plug in? or manual crop or some form of transform key frame? Trying to figure this one out. As I would like to zoom back in and out to make it more animated.
I have no clue what the "pew d pie effect" is. A link to an example would help. But that said, here's what I think may help you somewhat.
You could shop around for a pic-in-pic effect that works the way you want it to. Look at the Templates section here, scour through there, you may find a free one.
Super easy to do with keyframes. Place the playhead where you want the animation to start. Keyframe Position parameters (X & Y) and scale. Place the playhead where you want the clip to return to full size, create keyframes there. Then, keyframe the movement in between.
I trick I was taught by a Holywood leading effects professional many years ago, when doing these things, it is often easier and faster to keyframe the end of the animation first. In this case (and I do these a lot) I find keyframing the start and end fast and easy. As you're not really changing anything, just marking where the clip needs to start and end as-is. Then keyframe movement/animation in between.
Also, learn the OSC (on-screen controls) for keyframing scale and position parameters, it's really easy and fast.

I did give a solution that did not require that, first. Stop being a jerk, arc, whoever you really are.
Perhaps you should take your own advise. I left a very simple response that did not require you to go into full blown A-hole mode.
If someone is having problems doing a PIP they probably don't have a clue about 3-D animation. If the product is an original product it might be very complex. No one is going to create the model for free. We could suggest Cameron allow a visual effects artist to do everything but I am under the impression Cameron has a limited budget.

I do help people Mr. Guru and you know it. Xavier consistently makes harassing statements towards me. You even mentioned it. That being said I have done nothing to cause me to get banned. I will state FCP/Apple forums are always a bit different from any other forum. That being said I would never have been blocked form the Edius forum, the Matrox forum, the Pinnacle forums or any other forums for anything I have posted thus far. I can say Xavier would have been blocked by now in any other forum besides this forum. Do you see my point?
Also fixed the gap with a mask... only took 5 hours.
I had tons of crops done before I noticed the error... had to go back over them all. If someone watches it on a big tv they will see it but - what can you do eh... in future it would be good if there was a like smudge tool like in PS so you could draw stuff out.
I tried the colour mask - but it was very fiddly and didnt work for me
Anyhoo, I think you are all wonderful and helpful especially you GURU who selflessly offers wonderous help to people like me. A gent.
If you want to draw stuff out, as you say, look into PaintX from CoreMelt. One of my all-time favorite plugins that I use very often. I use it mostly as digital make-up on people's faces, but it can be used for many, many, many different things.
