Download Movavi Video Editor and start creating your split-screen videos now!
Step 1: Download the Video Editing Software
Download the Movavi Video Editor installation file and launch it. Once the setup is completed, the program will open automatically.
Step 2: Add Videos to the Program
As you've launched the program, choose Create project in full feature mode in the welcome wiindow. Then click Add Media Files and locate the videos you want to turn into split screen video.
To make your video fancier, add some professionally directed footage from our partner’s stock video library. Select Sample video and click Download more! (or visit the VideoBlocks page) to get more information about this option.
Step 3: Transfer Video to an Overlay Track
By default, the chosen videos will be added to the Video Track on the Timeline in the lower part of the program window. To make a split screen-video, first drag one of the videos to an Overlay Track above the Video Track.
Step 4: Choose How Your Split Screen Will Appear
With Movavi Video Editor, you can split a screen in half horizontally or vertically. To do this, double-click the video on the upper (overlay) track to enter editing mode. Open the list above the Preview window and choose Side by side. Click one of the four buttons next to the list to choose where the video from the main (lower) video track will play. The video from the overlay (upper) track will appear on the opposite side of the screen. For example, click the left button to play the main video on the left and the other video on the right side of the screen. When you’ve chosen the desired mode, click Apply.
Step 5: Manage the Sound
If you play your newly created split-screen video, you’ll hear the soundtracks of the clips you’ve added playing at the same time. It’s best to mute one of your videos to avoid deafening your audience! To do this, simply click the Mute Track icon on either the Video Track or Overlay Track.
Step 6: Save Your Clip
Now your split-screen video is ready to wow your audience. Click the Export button and choose the appropriate format tab at the top of the pop-up window. After you’ve specified the saving parameters, click Start.
