Is there a New Blue FX tool to do this?

Hey guys, want portions of three videos to fill my screen simultaneously in vertical strips, three across. How do I achieve this? Any suggestions?

Track Motion combined with either masking or cookie cutter should be able to do this.

Thanks, Mike. As long as I've used Vegas I've never used track motion! I can easily see how cookie cutter could work. Will try.

Never? Wow!! Jeff, you would use Track Motion if you wanted to change what you see on a particular event. Have fun playing :)

I looked at it ages ago, but the settings (parent, child, etc.) seemed very complex and I didn't seem to need it I guess!

New Blue has a very nice PIP tool that is very handy and I immediately thought of them when I wanted to try this.

I've never wrapped my head around the parent/child thing either. The New Blue FX looks like a good choice for people like us.

In answer to the original question, yes there is. Take a look at Video Essentials 6 which has both Picture Grid and Picture-In-Shape.
