Currently Being ModeratedJan 24, 2011 11:00 PM (in response to applecore_eater)I found one resource on how to make a split screen video here.
This one is a home-made movie. The movies I want to show side by side may not split well down the screen. The dimensions may be different to the one shown in the youtube instructional.
I will have to plunge in and try it out and see if it works or not.MacBook Air late 2010, 2.16 GHz 4GB RAM OS10.6.4, MacBook Air Rev C, PowerbookG4, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

No - not really
There is a Picture in Picture function that might work - but no true split screen.
In iMovie up to HD6 one could add Plug-ins that made this possibly - but one can't add
plug-ins to iMovie'08 or 09 or 11.
Only real alternative is - FinalCut Express where this is easy
BUT THE learning curve to just get up and running in FinalCut can be rather STEAP.
BUT - If You learn to use it - the revard is Great (freedom to do what You really want).

Add a side-by-side clip
It seems to be for iMovie 11. I have iMovie 09.MacBook Air late 2010, 2.16 GHz 4GB RAM OS10.6.4, MacBook Air Rev C, PowerbookG4, Mac OS X (10.6.4)

It seems to be for iMovie 11. I have iMovie 09.
Yes, it is a feature in iMovie '11 (version 9) but was not included in iMovie '09 (version 8). I've tried it and it works very well.

It's (now) possible with iMovie '09 as well. Drop a clip from the event browser onto a clip in the project area. A pop-up menu appears... choose "side-by-side" and you'll get a split screen effect.

Doug - are you sure you are using iMovie '09. Sorry to ask this (don't want to give others false hope), but iMovie '11 is actually version 9.0.8 (that's the latest update). The last version of iMovie '09 was 8.0.6 - all a little confusing!
In iMovie, click on the menu item iMovie > About iMovie. What does it show for Version? If it is 9.0.8 (or other 9 version), then you are on iMovie '11.
I could be wrong (haven't used '09 since '11 was released), but I don't recall any updates to iMovie '09 that introduced a "Side by Side" feature.
