Final Cut Pro and After Effects

I have a short film I need to make. I'd like to give it a sort of run-and-gun look, with a mixture of the "24" style. That is, I'd like to have three boxes on the screen, in front of a black background, and each box playing its own shot. So, one box will have a frontal shot of a guy walking, a second box with the guy's profile, and a third with his back, all showing the same movement but from different directions.

I've already filmed each shot, now I just want to know how to make it work. Someone told me I had to edit my clips and organize them in Final Cut then export the final product to After Effects to make this thing work.

I'd like some more info about this. Does anyone have any idea how to make this work??

just double click the clip and in the viewer switch to the "motion" tab and adjust the "scale" and "center point" of the clip....repeat for other clips and arrange them on the screen how you want them...... :)

You can also just select the clip in the timeline. That should hightlight the frame in the canvas and by grabbing one of the corners you can scale it down to whatever size you want.
