Video Splice

All right, I know I've posted here recently about a video project but now the dimensions and everything has changed. So I'd like your input on this one and I have a question:


the video that we're making will be displayed in a 960 by 2160 pixel dimension.

The way I was told to do is design the video in a 960 by 2160 vertically and they cut it into 4 displays of 960 by 540 and rearrange it in a 1920 by 1080 composition.

Now my question is how to I cut a video into for pieces, I'M USING AFTER EFFECTS????
I was planning to drop the 960 by 2160 video 4 times and positioned them into their respective quadrants, but this doesn't seem to be a very good way to do it.

The person has requested a quicktime video that will be played from a computer. So I'm assuming it'll be square pixels and I'm planning on keeping that at 29.97 frame rate...



what do you guys think?

That's exactly how I'd do it.

The only thing I'd add is that you might see better performance on final output if you pre-render the original 960x2160 comp, or create and use a best-quality, full-resolution proxy for your original comp.
