    Talking iMovie Split Screen & Final Cut Pro 5
    Hi everyone!

    I have come across a problem that I cant seem to solve on my own... I am editing footage in iMovie - basically the scene is where a guy is walking down a street and the busker to the right is also him too - the split screen clone idea...

    I could not for the life of me get it to work in iMovie so I had a go at Final Cut Pro 5 (which I am still getting to grips with, but currently prefer iMovie as if I am honest FCP scares me ha!) and I managed to get the scene to work with a little google searching.

    However, (breathe in...) when I export it from FCP then try and import into iMovie the quality changes dramatically, I have black borders around the scene, judders where there weren't before.

    Soooo, my questions to you all, the collective oracle, are:
    1. is there anyway I can improve the exported version
    2. is there a way of doing this in iMovie...?

    Many thanks for your help!

    If you are talking about iMovie 08, then there are no such effects available. If an older version then check out GeeThree.

    How are you do the export; codec, sizes, etc.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
