I have two video clips. What I need is for the first video clip to play behind the second. I need to be able to choose the offset since the two videos are not exactly in sync.I need to adjust the position of the second clip on the first. (It should be at different places at different times).What would be the right software to do this. Also are there any blog posts about this?

Adobe Premiere Elements 10 can do this.

I've not used it for many years (8+, and an older version at that) but I remember it being very easy even then.
