splitting the canvas

Hi All,
            new here so first post. 

I would like to know how I would go about showing 4 recordings on the same canvas as if it was split into 4 and then be able to have each one in turn zoom in to take up the entire canvas for a set time and then zoom out back to its place and do this for all the clips in question?

I am guessing this might be a tall order?

Thanks for any help.
Simon.

Not that difficult at all. Just place the separate clips on the timeline. One above the other. Resize and position them to the four corners. You can use the built in snap lines to help you align them correctly.
Then you would use the "Zoom and Pan" feature to control the Zooms.

Regards, Joe

Hi Joe

Personally, I'm a bit skeptical about the Zoom and Pan. I'm thinking all that will do is zoom the video larger in one of the corners so you see a close up view, but still in a corner.

I was thinking it would be more in the Visual Properties for this, no?

Note that this is just a shot from the hip. Don't have the time to fully test what I suspect.

Cheers... Rick :)
