Hey, my name is Zach. And I wanted to show you how to do split screen on Final Cut Pro. This is a really good thing to know how to do because you can often show many different angles with a split screen. And it will give your video that extra element that it needs. So over here as you can see I already have two clips down in my timeline. In order to get these in split screen I'm going to first double click on this top one. In scale I'm going to bring it down to about 35 percent. That's a little bit too small so lets go with 50. Maybe even a little bit smaller lets split the difference at 40. Then we are going to click and drag this clip down here. Good way to make sure that you can see where you are actually putting your clip is make it all fit. And we'll put that down here. You can also adjust here to the exact size you want but we'll do that later. So what we are going to do now is copy here. Hit paste attributes on the second. You are going to select basic motion. Hit ok. And it looks like your clip just went away. But it just followed this clip down here. So lets take this other clip and put it up here. And we can even make it a little bit bigger if we want to. And I think that's a pretty good size. So we're actually going to copy this one as well. Paste the attributes, basic motion. And now we have two great clips that are in split screen. My name is Zach and I just showed you how to do split screen in Final Cut Pro. Thanks for watching.
