Making split screens
on Dec 30, 2010 at 4:59:11 pm

Hi,

I want to create a 3 x 3 split screen and a 9 x 9 split screen (and possibly more)

I understand the percentage you need to scale the images by etc, the problem I have is with positioning. I am an avid editor and in media composer you can position things in the x and y axis' (and z) by picking itup and repo-ing by eye or by typing a value in. I can't see this in FCP so I can't work out how to repo an image to exactly the right place. Am I missing something? I probably am.

Thank you very much in advance FCP experts.

Steve

Double click your image.




Then click the motion tab

Thank you. I hadn't realised what I was looking for was labelled 'centre.'

Thanks again,

Steve

a few simple things,

Stack your clips then,

Just size one of the clips the way you like it, then CMD+C or right click>copy

Then Right click>Paste Attributes to the other clips in the stack.
check basic motion or crop

*you can apply this to as many clips as you want.

Also, something like todo instead of using the center parameter in the motion tab

Just start using image&wireframe in the Canvas(top right) and place them where you want to see them

*pay attention to the title and action safe marks*

You can also, hold shift and drag on the x or y axis.

hope this helps.
