Split screen tutorial – get ready for editing!

We have several shots needed to be edited into split screens, we don’t have much time left so I would like to do a research on it now rather than while i am editing!

I found an invisible split screen tutorial in accident, it is different from split screen, it is to use a tool to split two objects in one screen, and manipulate separately how long their action lasts! and I think it’s very useful:

But to be honest, I did not clearly see which tool he uses… It is not one of those basics and we need a detailed tutorial if we use it.

Compared to the invisible one, the actual split screen tutorial is much easier to follow and understand:


Basically, it is crop that makes split screen, and we can change configuration of the blocks for different looks by adjust the percentage of crop and the direction of crop:


  1. drag the videos for spilt screen

2. find the editing effect – transform – crop

3. apply the crop effect on the video

4.choose the size of cutout part and the direction

5. apply this to every video

6. Add black transparent video to have the same delay between the videos

New – transparent video…

7. adjust the position of transparent video and actual clips

(This part is confusing without trying on my own… I am gonna try when i get to school!)

8. (selective) another transparent video before the actual clip pops up

This one is usually seen in journey videos, very eye catchy…
