Hey GMCers,

I have a question: every now and then we see a GMC lesson where one of our instructors is playing a lesson and then the screen is split in two where in one little corner a solo is played and for the rest of the video the rhythm is played (or other way around).
Example: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/ls/Progressive-Metal-Heat/

Could anyone who knows this kind of stuff please tell me how to achieve this? What software to use and how to do it ?? Preferably I would want to use a free software, like iMovie or something equivalent.

Thanks a bunch,
Cheers smile.gif

Unaware of any free software that does it. Although I think the budget version of Sony Vegas can do this (less than $100 I think). I use Sony Vegas 9, a bit older as I think 11 is out, but if you want to add layers of videos, with cropping and resizing I think its usually going to be a paid software in the end.

Simply turn on the "Advanced Tools" option in your iMovie preferences. Drag the second clip on to the first one and you'll get a "Picture in Picture" option. Choose that and you're done biggrin.gif .

Well, that's assuming he's got a mac wink.gif But if he does, he's set! Also don't forget that you have to synch up both videos so that they start at the same time otherwise the images won't match the sounds. If you get two cameras of the same type, you can use a remote to start them both at once, but that's not needed once you get some practice at lining up vids in the timeline.

Thanks guys for all the information. I have a mac but my iMovie version is a bit old (since my mac is old). When I use the advanced tools in imovie and copy and put the second video on the first one, it just adds it, doesn't combine them into one movie. But well, at least now I know it is possible with imovie.

Here is a video that might help smile.gif It shows how to do it in the previous version of iMovie. You didn't mention which version so I"m sorta guessing. You can find a video about it just by a quick search on youtube which is how I found this smile.gif
