Hi all,

I am currently working on a project for a video wall that is 7680x1080 (basically 4 x 1920x1080 screens in a row).

Using After Effects, I was thinking of making a huge comp - primarily to avoid sync issues between displays, as we've had some at the moment when using lots of separate footage syncing through BrightAuthor - basically breaking it down to 4 video files, instead of a bunch that is making it messy.

Ideally keeping it all within one chopped up comp might look better.

So, my question is - what is the most efficient way to cut up my huge comp to create 4 individual videos that will (hopefully) remain in sync and patched together?

Thanks very much in advance,

Make four 1920x1080 comps. Add the big, huge comp to one and change the horizontal position. It's a simple matter of a little arithmetic to get each positioning dead solid perfect in each comp.

I worked on a video wall of lower resolution, 2560x480. I created a canvas of that size, and I made the animation considering all the length. I keep playing it on VLC's desktop mode, and I haven't had any problem so far.

Well, that is another option if your PC on move a single file of 7680x1080.
