Solved Combining multiple videos on one screen

I recently saw a fairly simple technique used by the BBC on their Ski Sunday programme, for combining 2, 3 or 4 videos onto one screen, a bit like a postcard, as below.

I was thinking this could be useful for showing some vertical (phone) footage alongside some standard landscape shots.

I have VMS15 Platinum, and tried several things, including the Picture-in-Picture feature (even 2 PIP tracks), or instead resizing videos on multiple tracks above a white background. None of these were straightforward or simple to get the exact effect.

Could anyone suggest the most efficient way to achieve the effect, as I suspect I'm missing something obvious!

Many thanks

Hi JoeBW!

Try this Tutorial that Derek (a.k.a. Dr. Zen) created for Vegas Pro. It is from 2015, but is still quite applicable to today, and the best thing? Works with Movie Studio!

Good Luck!

Excellent - many thanks. That was exactly what I was looking for. Hadn't used track motion, which is of course a fundamental part!

(Great tutorial Derek - very easy to understand - thanks)
