    How do I create a diagonal split screen?

    I've been using the PIP effect to create vertical split screens and animate them in, but I'd love to know how i can create a split that goes diagonally across the screen, without having to rotate the actual footage or anything.

     

    I'm used to Premiere so apologies if it's a really simple answer that I've just missed!

    Re: How do I create a diagonal split screen?

    It may be counterintuitive, but one easy method to do a dialogal split is to drop a diagonal Edge Wipe transition (Upper Left Diagonal, Lower Right, etc.) onto the top clip. Make sure it doesn't stick to the head or tail of the clip but to the middlle, this way it won't animate in to out (unless you deliberately keyframe it).

    If you leave it as is, you have an instant diagonal split screen.
