Split Screen Video Effect for Premiere Pro
Every Story Has Two Sides, And You Should Capture Them Both!
Have you ever seen an old movie where a romantic couple talks on the phone late at night?
On the left side of the screen, you see the man expressing his love, and on the right side, you see the girl covered in tears of joy. You can see their reactions while the other one talks. You can feel their emotions just by looking at their expressions.
This is possible with a method called Split Screen, and generally, it’s not easy to do… Or it wasn’t!

That being said, let us investigate further why so many people love and use the Split Screen effect.
Fusing Different Perspectives In A Single Holistic View
As video producers, we often have more than just one perspective we want to show, and sometimes to simply transition between frames feels too mundane and unsatisfying.
We want our viewers to see the whole picture from multiple angles, to feel engaged, to feel present in every aspect of the production video.
And Split Screen is the way to show them everything at once!
We can show them the action and the stillness, the love and the hate, the Yin and the Yang all in one frame.
With the Split Screen effect you can present a bigger picture, a broader perspective of the reality and its different elements, you have full control over what your audience sees and feels!
How Did The Split Screen Effect Came To Be?
In 1898 Georges Méliès created a groundbreaking visual effect in his film “The Four Troublesome Heads” and you guessed it… the audience was blown away by this simple, yet astounding effect.
And from this point on Split Screens gained mass popularity. Top video producers from all over the world used this multi-perspective technology in their movies, making them a true masterpiece.
Before the arrival of digital technology, video editors would create Split Screens by combining two or more separate video footages, by copying them to one single negative, called the compose. This was a really hard and slow effect to achieve.
So we put our best minds to work for days until we came up with something that is simple to use, easy to apply, and has the most variations possible!
What Are The Ways You Can Use Split Impacts?
Have you ever been mesmerized by a shot of a luxurious yacht in the sea filmed from a drone? And then suddenly the screen opens up giving you a closer look at the deck and its passengers?
Yes, it does feel awesome. It does feel like you are tearing reality apart just to have a look at what’s underneath it.
And that’s what we were encouraged to recreate...
Split Screens have been used for centuries to present two pictures side by side or right one on top of the other, but today the effect is mainly used to create some kick-ass transitions from one scene to another.
Here are just some examples of Split Screen use cases:
- Expectation versus Reality
- Before and after
- Zoomed in and Zoomed out perspective
- Showing two or more ways something can be done
- The typical phone call scenario
- Showing two completely different paths
While there are many use case scenarios, we at Film Impacts like to use the Split Screen effect mainly to create some mind-boggling and seamless transitions when the most action is happening.
We have seen the emotions that our viewers experience from video transitions like this and we are ready to give you this effect for free for the next 30-days!
