In stead of dragging the four corners in the right position, we have to use x, y, z rotation.

It was already disccused here viewtopic.php?f=6&t=13950

I hope I missed an update... but if not, please tell me what is the trick to position it in an quick way? (I am stuck in trial & very much error).

This is addressed in V7 but for now, in V6 the better way is to zoom in to where the video will be positioned and where possible make it as flat in the viewer as you can.
Then when you add the pinned video it is far easier to then place it flat.
I had someone send me an example where the video was to be pinned on a monitor which was very distorted.
These are the steps I took to pin this:

1) First hide all panels by selecting Alt + Tab. Then select the properties panel
2) Rotate the panorama so the area that is to have the video is as flat as possible
3) Add the video and position as near as you can so it looks flat the area and is the correct width
4) Adjust Aspect ratio so it fits top and bottom
5) Once pinned select Alt + 1 to return all panels

Once shared with the customer they found it much easier to pin the video.

Thanks for your answer Martin.

It does indeed make it a bit easier this way.

I look forward to version 7!


PS: there is a typo in 1)
alt + tab has to be ctrl + tab (at least, Windows)
