Split Screen For A Newbie

Question

Hello all,

I need some help. I am filming the progress of my Little League team and I want to make a DVD of the movie clips I have taken to show the kids. I would like to make a split screen of the first clips and the last clips so they can view thier progress side by side. Can I do this? If so, how?

Well, the program isn't really set up to do a side by side split screen. You can do a video in video pretty easily by switching to the Timeline view, dragging the second video onto the Overlay track and adjusting the size to reveal the other video.

 

However, if you're willing to take a couple of extra steps.... You could put the first video on the Overlay Track over a very long Color panel. Adjust it so that the video only covers half the color panel. Then do a File\ Output video as.... and either choose DV camcorder, if your original file is DV AVI and for DV Authoring if it's mpeg2.

 

Then take the new video that you've made, put that on a new storyline and drag the second video onto the Overlay track and adjust it.

 

Personally, I think you'd be better off doing a video in video because #1 it's easier and #2, the video won't look as distorted as it would in split screen.
