Putting in a picture half-way through the video

Cecil Westerhof-3
I have to publish the video's from our Zoom meetings. Something went
wrong. Halfway a recording the recording went from the speaker to the
overview screen. I like to change the part of the video with the
overview screen (people do not know they are being recorded and not
everything is very flattering) with a static picture. Is this doable?
(Without to much work.)

This (and the audio sync issue you describe elsewhere) seems to me to be a
job far better suited to an actual video editor since you can perform these
actions interactively.

Lightworks (lwks.com) is extremely powerful, free for output 720 or lower,
and works on Linux, Mac, and PC. There are many others that are free too
for the various platforms.

Just my $0.02
Cheers,
Simon

I really do not like to use file editing tools. Until now I managed
quit sufficiently with scripts that called ffmpeg, but maybe it is
time to bite the bullet.

I think if the use case is as simple as it sounds, a video editor
is not really needed.

If you re-encode the video anyway, there should be multiple easy
ways to achieve your goal with filters.

If you don't want to re-encode the complete video, than it will
require quite a stunt, which potentially can be achieved with
ffmpeg, but ffmpeg won't be helping you to achieve it. The risks
of errors might be to high to try that.

Maybe there are other tools or video editors that support this,
but I just don't know.

Any tips?
The videos are short. And there is only one switch. So for the first
(say) two minutes I want the video, after that I want to swap it with
a picture.
