Hey, I'm trying to create a split screen video where I take the video from the actual editing area of the space as opposed to importing it. Because I cut and cropped stuff down on that space and now I cant put it into a split screen!
Did you preview the results before burning to DVD?
Hi, I'd like to add another vote for adding the ability to edit individual content components of a split screen scene. Especially the ability to add pan / zoom effects to still photos (like you already can on individual photos when not in split screen mode). Thanks.
Hi, zaeda, I am afraid the split screen only supports single track, I will send your feedback to our R&D department for reference. Thanks.
If making a split screen video, I can't seperate each video to a channel. say like, video one on the right side and audio on the right and the video on left also will be on the left, so i have a stereo sound all together.
hi, sorry that our program does not support to do 5 screens or more. But we will forward your need to our programmers for reference. If possible, we will add this option in the future version. Thanks for your understanding.
In the tutorial video, I see that there's options for 4 screens and 6 screens, but can we do 5 or more?
I added the spit screen and my pics to it but when I burned the DVD it didn't show the pics. What could have went wrong.
Hi, sorry to tell you that our program does not provide such options, such as changing color/saturation, rotate/crop for the videos that drop into the split screen. But we will forward your needs to our programmers for improvement in future version. Thanks for our understanding.
how do I change colour/saturation and rotate/crop the clip after applying split screen?
