    Default Making A 4 Way Split Screen....

    Hi, im trying to make a 4 way split screen for a music video that i am making. I can get a 4 way split screen but i want the splits to be separated so it looks like i have 4 separate screens and not 1 large screen with 4 different goings on in it.

    Another thing i want to do is to add an MTV logo in the corner to make it more authentic, how do i go about making a watermark? (i think)

    If this was coherant enough, can someone help me?

    First off, just resize your video to anything less than 25%, that way you can create a border around your clips (anything that isn't video will be black). So reduce each of them by say 23%, then postition each in seperate corners. Alternatively, resize to 25%, put locate your the outer edges of your clips outside the frame - that way you can create the border, or "cross" in the middle.

    To do the logo, first create a transarent image of said logo. The image should be the same framesize as your video, with the logo positioned in the exact position you want it on screen. Note: allow for the fact that the visible area on a TV is less than on a monitor . Now, import the image onto a superimpose layer, and hey presto one watermark!

    Ok, That sounds awesome! BUT, I need like an idiots guide to making this split screen. I was using a guide to making the split screen using the transform filter from this website:

    If you could provide a better guide so that i can get the cross, since i know what you mean but cant pull it off....
