    ME split screen

    I want to shoot a production whereby my two cameras can be centered on their respective subjects but be able to set up am ME with a split screen left and right that would show each subject in the center of their respective half of the split screen. I've already played with this and haven't come up with the solution using my 860.

    I'd just use the positioning tools to do that. You can slide the A and B layers to each side and then crop the A layer to the center point to reveal the B layer below.

    Just to add to Kris' suggestion, an ME can be either MIX or EFFECT, and is EFFECT by default which just acts like a switcher. You must select the "Default 2-Layer" set to do what you want. Then you will have the added controls on the A and B layers to do the positioning and cropping to get the desired result.

    Thanks

    Thanks guys. I went out to my TriCaster and found the AB split "effect" and once loaded into an ME was able to push each camera's shot to center the talent. It's amazing how you can try to figure something out one day and then have a moment of clarity a couple of days later. I have to do three Mayoral debates next month and wanted to get the "look" of the recent debates when seeing a candidate watch as the moderator asks the question...
