Posted: 16 Jan 2006 02:25 AM
im looking for an effect that will make the left side of the screen one video and the right side another video im sure something like the pip would work except that only does a small section and im looking to do the whole left side of the screen one and the whole right side another video.

I did something like this in the following post (view post 20373) with the "Side-by-side video". Is that what you mean?

that is almost exactly what im looking for

one question though, is there a way to make it so it doesnt squash the video to fit, instead you could crop the 50% out of each video you would like to keep for that side? do you understand?

like you want for the left side to be from clip 1 the section of 0.02, 0.0, 1.0, 0.7 and right side to be the section from clip 2 to be 0.4, 0.0, 1.0 0.9, i believe i did the demensions right.

or is something like that to much work?

thanks

I guess I'm still not understanding your dimensions, but this definitely sounds like a task that would work best with PIP Plus... a pair of static PIP windows should be easy for PIP Plus to accomplish (even after the trial period expires).

Looking at your example you could apply an effect to shift video 1 to the right and video 2 to the left. Then if you merge them together with Rehan's SPLIT: Vertical transition, you should have it.

Here are a couple of 'Move' effects, but you may have to play with the percentage by changing the Progress values. I tried 49% (0.49) and 48% (0.48) and it lined up your example... but you may need to tweak the values.

<TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0">
<Effects>
<EffectDLL guid="{B4DC8DD9-2CC1-4081-9B2B-20D7030234EF}">
<Effect name="Move Left (49%)" iconid="33" >
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="left" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.49"/>
</Effect>
<Effect name="Move Right (48%)" iconid="33">
<Param name="InternalName" value="Simple3D" />
<Param name="MoveA" value="right" />
<Param name="Progress" value="0.48"/>
</Effect>
</EffectDLL>
</Effects>
</TransitionsAndEffects>
