[resolved]How do I make a snapshot view

Has anyone had any experience with or tried to make a snapshot view in a game? What I mean by this is where you have things moving about on screen and in the corner of the screen is a live feed of what's happening in a small section of the layout, and the feed will follow a selected player. Not sure where to start but I'm hoping it can be mimicked somehow.

@CBelle
What I'm looking for is essentially a radar view. You select someone on the map, then it cuts to a snapshot window, which shows them moving around from top view above them. This is separate to the player character moving about in the game, the view in the window doesn't follow the main scroll to, it would just follow the selected player and show them in the small window in real-time. It might not be possible in C2 but usually it's possible to mock something up.
