PIP/Split Screen - Dance Recital Quagmire (cross posted in Sony Vegas Forum)

Hi everyone,

(since I’m using Sony Vegas to edit, I originally posted this in the Vegas Forum. However since the main topic is a dance recital, I’m sure many of you faced similar dilemmas)

I’m looking to create a quick workflow action/command/whatever to make a PIP/split screen – with the final result dividing the screen approx. 50/50 and a soft/feather like divider between the two. (horizontal division)

This past weekend I shot the ubiquitous dance recital. It was a fairly elaborate (4cam (EX1Rs), SD60i 16:9) shoot. Ideally I’d like to intersperse a split screen of a full group shot (bottom layer) with a panning CU shot riding above (top layer). I use Ultimate S Quad Cam as my editing foundation.

I’m ultimately trying to solve the endless dilemma of … “How to please all the mommies with some face time of their little darling (only slightly cynical here, they were all pretty cute – as a dad to 2 little girls myself, been-there-done-that, appreciate the long term value of such a final product) with capturing the essence of the group dance.”

Any suggestions, comments, tips etc would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

RR

Hi Rick,

Might I suggest the Event Videographers forum, too? There is some overlap between our two groups, but there are some folks there who may have valuable suggestions that don't check here often.
