  • Split Screen with overlap in center

    Posted by Bruce Brent on December 18, 2013 at 2:18 am

    I’m hoping for a way to blend/overlap in the center of two video images/split screen where both show with just a bit of overlap. I want both video clips to feather in the middle. Is this possible?

    If so, please send the scenario of how. Thanks!

    You can follow my tutorial for:

    Creating a Split Screen using a Mask

    and just feather the mask as needed.

    John, thanks your your quick reply with a tutorial. But, that’s not what I’m after. I didn’t mention anything about using a green screen.

    What I do want is to have my project video display two moving images across the screen, side by side but the center overlap so both show/crossfade.

    Do you have a tutorial or scenario for that?

    In fact, anyone, please chime in.

    Sorry you didn’t understand my suggestion. It was to create a mask like the one in my tutorial and feather the edge to create the crossfade. Play around with masks and feathering edges and you’ll see what I mean.

    John, I’ve done exactly what your tutorial directed, but where the two images overlap (center), that verticle overlap is much lighter. There’s no way (that I can try) that blends the two images to show at the same luminous value.

    Feathering the edges of the mask is not in my tutorial but that’s what you need to do. Give the mask a feathered edge and it will blend better with whatever is under it.
