    Can iMovie '09 do split screen?
    Hi, I want to do something with iMovie and, perhaps, Logic; I want to do videos of myself playing various instruments overdubbed on a song, and combine the footage of me playing the guitar in one part, and either the bass or keyboard part in another, and combine the footage so that all parts are simultaneously visible. Is this possible? Thanks, Glenn

    Hi Glenn, The best you can do in iMovie 09 is to utilise PiP (Picture in Picture) effect. However, this doesn't allow you to split the screen into two halves. Instead one clip would always be bigger than the other. Try it out and you'll see what I mean. Final Cut Express would be much easier to use to have many video clips splitting up the video canvas. In fact it's pretty easy to achieve once you know your way around FC. Quicktime Pro could also achieve this albeit in a more manual way. :) Rounik

    Hi Rounik, Thanks for your reply. I haven't watched the complete tut for iMovie'09 (I am going through it now). If I want to switch emphasis between the smaller and larger videos, will it do it seamlessly? Cheers, Glenn

    Hey Glenn, Yes, you can add crossfades ... etc to PiP clips in your project. :) Rounik
