Split screen/ windowed effect help
Posted: 18 Aug 2008 03:29 AM
Hello, I am new to this forum, and a regular user of WMM. I have XP by the way. There is an effect I'd like to do, called split screen or sometimes windowed. I know how to have half of 2 videos, but that's not what I want to do. And I know the "side by side" effect, which is good but not perfect. What I want is 2 50% resized videos running side by side at the same time.
This picture explains it as well.

Can somebody please help me?

Woah, that looks complicated. I don't really know anything about codes and stuff, and when I downloaded it there were just these really spiffy effects that aren't really what I want. Could somebody please just give me the code for the xml to do the effect? In the meantime I'll try to figure it out, but I'm guessing I won'.

I want the 2 videos to crop 1/4 left and right to maintain the aspect ratio. If only I understand what the numbers mean.

Dont know what you mean by "to crop 1/4 left and right"? If we crop 25% on both side it would leave only 1/2 of the video frame... is that what you want? Your picture did not show this!

What the numbers mean is explained on the <a href=">PipPlus webpage</a>.

Yeah, that's what I mean. Cropping half of each video frame to maintain the aspect ratio when they play side-by-side

This is not possible easily with the current plugins but forthcoming PipPlus 2 BETA can do this easily... actually it comes with a similar example...
