The topic of Premiere Elements transparency and superimposing can be found in Adobe documents such as Adobe Premiere Elements Help/Transparency and superimposing and Adobe Premiere Elements Help/Effects Reference which include insights into transparency terms such as alpha channel, Opacity, Mask, Matte, and Keying. And, the ATR Premiere Elements Troubleshooting blog series has looked at various techniques for creating transparency in the Premiere Elements Timeline content. For example, see
