This is done to remove the inconvenience with the reversed audio. Split-Screen: ℚ I have a video of 10 minutes and other of 5 minutes. Can I use them together? Yes, both videos would play together until the first video ends at 5 minutes and blackens out, while the second video continues playing till 10 minutes. ℚ Can I select more than 2 videos in Split-Screen? No. At present Split-Screen allows you to add only 2 videos. However, if you want more than 2 videos then simply render it twice and so on. ℚ Can I get original audio for the Split-Screen video? No. Since Split-Screen combines two videos together to play as once, the audio from both videos would result in distortion. Hence, the rendered video will not have any audio. Game Your Video User Manual “Popular Videos” community: ℚ I want to upload a video to the community. What is the process?
