divide screen into 4 equal videos playing at same time
Posted: 30 Sep 2005 10:48 AM
can anyone give me instructions on how to play 4 videos simultaneously at same time. I mean divide screen into 4 equal parts and in each part different videos to be played and all at same time to start.

Four videos you can do but it will take multiple passes. Check Rehan's site (www.rehanfx.org) for his PIP Plus effects and search these forums for 'Brady Bunch'.

Just do different math and set the regions to 0.0/0.5 with sizes of 0.5/0.5... The brady bunch post was just as an example, but you should be able to take it from there... right?

First you need to learn the basics of xml ;). You can find a walkthrough of applying xml code on the page in my signature. Next assuming you read the chapter or already know what to do you need to do apply these modifications to the brady bunch code:

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0" SpecialIconFileID="1033" SpecialIconResourceID="101">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{0BEDE179-3361-4eea-9058-11CBB1739D50}">
<Effect name="Brady Bunch Window2" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.00,0.00,0.5,0.5" />
<Param name="Background" value="0x000000" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Brady Bunch Shift2" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.5,0.00,1.00,1.00" />
<Param name="Background" value="0x000000" />
</Effect>
<Effect name="Brady Bunch Drop2" iconid="0">
<Param name="RectA" value=" 0.0, 0.00,0.5,1.00,1.00" />
<Param name="Background" value="0x000000" />
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>


Next, here's the link to the Brady Bunch post. Follow the set instructions and you should be on your way :). If you're having any trouble feel free to give me a buzz.

These are PIP+ effects, so you need to have PIP+ installed.
You can find it at www.rehanfx.org
These effects will work with the trial version, even after the
trial period expires.
