    Hello, I've used the search function but I couldn't find anything helpful. I want to use Final Cut Pro to edit a short clip the way they do it for the show 24. I want several videoclips (3 or 4) next to, and underneath eachother. I want to be able to key the size and position. How can I do that? Does this make sense? I'll try to make it clearer.

    [MOVIE][MOVIE]
    [MOVIE][MOVIE]

    All 4 clips in a single screen.

    Maybe there's an online tutorial, but searching for 24, edit and final cut doesn't give great results. Help would be great!

    Can you not just take the clip you want, drag it to the timeline, alter it's size and position in the properties and repeat till you get your 4 clips?

    the manual or any fcp related book can tell you this. flip through the index or pages. it won't say 24 of course, but it's there.

    and it's so easy, it will blow your mind away :)

    Double click a video clip in your timeline and then click on the motion tab in the viewer window. Everything you need is there.
