How To: Create picture-in-picture & split screens in Premiere

Create picture-in-picture & split screens in Premiere

Jeff Schell walks you through simple yet effective methods to show two people having a phone conversation on screen at the same time. Jeff starts by showing you how to quickly make a picture-in-picture effect in Premiere Pro CS3, and then adds on a cross-dissolve transition to fade the video in and out. Jeff then demonstrates how to use the Position property to slide a clip to one side, so the people on the phone are side by side.

Great tutorial! I'm working on editing a movie trailer I created from a script I wrote and this is the only relevant info on the web for editing phone conversations I found. Would be more useful if updated in Adobe CC for Windows 8.1 though. Thanks so much Jeff!
