I'm just getting to grips with PPC, and I found this tutorial really clear, smart and helpful. I spent much of life with editors pushing the buttons - I should have paid more attention.
All the best
Nice! I get as much out of your little keyboard shortcuts along the way as I do about the main point of the tutorials.
Thanks for the tutorials. I love watching them.
I think I've only had one occasion to use split screen on a show with folks on a telephone conversation. In that case we shot the person making the call in the left half of the frame, the call receiver on the right half of the frame and animated the split as a wipe from right to center coming in, then wiping back right at the conclusion of the call.
Creating separate mat elements in Photoshop seems like a bunch of extra work to me. The crop method is so simple and fast compared to the compositing mats method. This is especially true if you want to animate the split.
Putting a black border around the whole picture seemed esthetically unpleasing even if it gives you the opportunity to reframe the subjects in the splits. (or am I missing something with this technique).
