PIP (Picture in picture) option missing in CS8

I use this for adding GIF animations to my videos.
Without this option, having CS8 is pointless.

Please fix/patch

Hi Muhammad,

PIP can be easily replaced with multi-track as Kayakman suggested, unfortunately what's missing is the GIF animation due to our backlog, so a GIF only renders as a static image on timeline (no animation). However, a workaround would be recapturing this GIF as an avi/MP4 or any other video formats that CS supports and use that instead.

Sorry for the confusion and hope you otherwise enjoy using CS 8.
