BACKGROUND/OVERLAY: Split screen


#1

So, I’ve seen a few stories where the author has two characters talking on the phone, and one character who is on the other end comes onto the screen with a different background, and the screen splits. I think this would be cool if it was somehow integrated into the background catalog for everyone to use instead of people trying to figure out how to attempt it themselves with no luck (including myself.)

Perhaps in the background or overlay catalog, there is a category called “Split,” where you can find background collages or overlays so that we can show characters in two or more places at once. Maybe we could even make it so that we can direct the individual sections of the screen as well? For example, if the screen is split into thirds, panning in the middle section while zooming in a side section, and fading out in the third?

I know this is probably difficult to achieve or too much to ask, but I wanted to throw the suggestion out there in case it’s possible!

Thanks! :slight_smile:


How to Split Screen During Phone Calls
#2

there is one already though I think?

Its two places, split down the middle with a white line, and has a phone in each place.


#3

There may be. I haven’t seen it in the catalog but if there already is one, then it would be great if they added more!


#4

I found it!

INT. PHONECALL - DAY

It’s this one. Put that into the search bar on the art catalogue and you’ll see what I mean.

Hi! I just add an overlay of a background I want to use for my . It’s much easier that way because I can have full control over it; as in what part of whatever background or if it animates in.

If you want help with coding a scene using a split screen message me :slight_smile:

Maybe these overlays could be helpful to anyone:
Each are 320 x 1136 so will fit half the screen.
I made them for a story I don’t intend to publish


Need help on ANYTHING just ask meeee

1. take the backgrounds u want the phone call to take place in, then crop it
2. the size for an episode background is 640 pixels wide and 1136 pixels tall (one panel i think) make your template this size
3. then choose a template that has two grids and place you backgrounds in the grids

here’s what i did: (if u want a three panel picture then use 1920 x 1136)

(tag me if u use this lol)

hope this helped a little…

I know exactly what you are talking about, I’ve seen them in stories to. Most authors actually have their own custom made. But their is one in the Art Catalogue if you prefer to use the one already provided.:smiley:
