Use the split screen to compare two tracks, such as an online and offline version. Generally this is used to compare a rough cut to the final assembly. By merging both tracks into a single image, you can compare the two for editing synchronization, color matching, etc.
The split screen compares versions as well as video tracks.
To compare tracks in split screen:
- Click the Timeline tab.
- Set the Primary and Secondary tracks.
- In the View Area menu bar, select Options.
- Select Show Viewing Settings.
- Select the split you will use to compare the two clips in the Compare Mode/Stereo section.
Depending on the split, you will have different attributes available to change the partition between the two clips. Modify the values in these attributes to provide the best comparison.
You can now compare the two tracks on the split-screen.
