I would like to show the left half of the first video on the left, and the right half of the second on the right.

Are there any programmes that offer this feature, or is there a workaround anyone can think of?

I only wanted half of each video, not the full thing. – Lewis Goddard Aug 10 '12 at 19:07
You are right, I misread your question, sorry about that ;) – stragu Aug 12 '12 at 13:36

enter image description here

  • Place clips on two separate tracks.
  • Right click first video and choose Layout 1/4 Size - Top Left
  • Right click second video and choose Layout 1/4 Size - Top Right
  • Right click first video and choose Show All (Maintain Ratio)

You can try shotcut ( It comes with the posibility for video compositing. Just like in Openshot you can include one video on track and another on another track. Then you will enable to composite option on the left side of each track. Now you can apply on each the filter "resize" and put each video in it's place on the screen.
