How to Make Adobe Premiere Pro Split Screen?

Adobe Premiere Pro is a professional video editor that can be used to do tons of editing tasks and produce industry-standard outputs. Now, follow the steps below to learn how to split screen in Premiere Pro.

--Step 1. No matter what split-screen video editor you’re using, your first step is to import your footage into your editor.
Open Premiere Pro and hit New Project. In the upper-left, you can create a Project name and specify a new Project location.
Under the Import section, find and select the target videos. Hit Create to import them.

Tips: When I first import my MP4 videos into Premiere Pro, there is no video but only audio. I noticed that many users have encountered the same Premiere Pro only audio no video issue . And in most cases, this error results from wrong codecs. Therefore, before importing videos, please make sure your file is supported by Premiere Pro. If not, you’ll need a powerful video converter to convert the unsupported file type to a Premiere-editable format. If you have no idea what formats are supported by Premiere Pro and how to convert, you can find answers in this post: Import Video into Premiere Pro without Error

--Step 2. Drag the videos you need onto the Timeline to create a new sequence. Make sure to stack videos on top of each other on the timeline, as shown in the pic below:

If you don’t need the audio track, you can remove the audio from the video in Premiere Pro.

--Step 3. On the left side of the workplace, click on Effects and search Crop in the text box. Then select the effect and left-click to drag it to the video on the timeline. Then go to the Effect Controls panel and find the Crop option.

--Step 4. Depending on how you want to split the screen, you can adjust settings in the Crop effect. For example, here I change the Left to 50.0%, I get a video like this:

Of course, you can go ahead and experiment with other settings to check which works best for your video.

--Step 5. Then repeat the above steps to apply the Crop effect to other videos. Once done, click the Export option and modify the output settings. You can see the final video in the right-side Preview window.
