Just option+click and drag your footage onto the video placeholders and you've got a perfectly symmetrical quad split screen that animates in and out. These templates are perfect for editors who want to quickly jazz up their edit or who want a head start on designing a more complex quad split screen.
FACT: The default template (with no motion) will save you at least 1:30 minutes, and that's if you already know the exact position/scale values for a 1920x1080 quad split screen. Save time and download these templates!
Bonus! The download below shows the exact position/scale values to create a symmetrical quad split screen that fits to a 1920x1080 canvas. It's an awesome reference to memorize.
