Hi @iharpyou , I also made you a tutorial video. I just ran a screen capture program and made it from start to finish.
I used sample photos but you can use videos instead.

Took 6 minutes. Half of that time was making a black and white border mask. This ensures that the border between each of the photos is a constant 10 pixels wide. To save you time, hereâ€™s the border mask I created. Feel free to download it:

I went quite fast (Iâ€™m an advanced user) so I hope you can get an idea of what I did. Best to view the YouTube tutorial in full-screen mode and pause if necessary.
Hereâ€™s the tutorial:

Just add the 3 video on separate track bellow each other.
Add a color clip on a track bellow the 3. (for the frames)
apply a â€śMask: Simple shapeâ€ť and â€śSize, position & Rotateâ€ť to each of the video tracks.
Adjust â€śMask: Simple shapeâ€ť on each track to make the windows shown for each track.
Adjust the SPR filter position & zoom to adjust what part of the original video to show
in each cutout.

Yesđź‘Ť Iâ€™ve used this method before, with 2x2 gridâ€¦ 10 seconds faster
Track V2: Size, Position & Rotate: Preset-> Top Right
Track V3: Size, Position & Rotate: Preset-> Top Left.
Result: 1minute 50

@SergeC We only have your word
Whereâ€™s the proof?

With that saidâ€¦ Now that you mention it, it is true that I didnâ€™t need to use a 4x4 grid.

A quoi sert le â€śCrop Rectangleâ€ť sur lâ€™image du bas, puisque les 2 autres sont au-dessus ?
Il vous a fait perdre au moins 15 secondes

What is the purpose of the â€śCrop Rectangleâ€ť in the bottom image, since the other 2 are above?
He lost you at least 15 seconds

Câ€™est aussi la solution que jâ€™utilise, elle est plus polyvalente car elle permet dâ€™ajuster le cadrage de lâ€™image avec le SPR dans la dĂ©coupe

This is also the solution that I use, it is more versatile because it allows you to adjust the framing of the image with the SPR in the cutout

En effet, une autre Ă©tape inutile pour ce cas particulier. Si on continue Ă  creuser, on arrivera peut-ĂŞtre Ă  rĂ©aliser cet effet en un seul clic

Indeed, another unnecessary step in this particular case. If we keep on digging, we might be able to achieve this effect with a single click.

Unfortunately, @musicalbox, I notice that you omitted the 10 pixel border:

â€¦ so therefore I have to break it to you gently that you failed.

No matter, I have a present for you. A 10 pixel border mask image:

Feel free to use it, but adding it to your demo and applying a blend mode filter (or chromakey) will add another 9.745 seconds to your completion timeâ€¦

hmmm Iâ€™m a bit confused @jonray â€¦ even with my glasses on, I donâ€™t see any white border around the screen (edges) on the original posterâ€™s example

But maybe he cropped this hypothetical border when capturing his screenâ€¦
(as improbable as it may soundâ€¦)

That sounds like a challenge

Sur ce coup, je suis dâ€™accord avec @MusicalBox, il nâ€™y a pas de bordures autour de lâ€™Ă©cran dans le premier message.
Maintenant si vous voulez cette bordure, câ€™est possible, mais cela prend un peu plus de temps, environ 10 Ă  15 minutes.

On this one, I agree with @MusicalBox, there are no borders around the screen in the first post.
Now if you want this border, it is possible, but it takes a little longer, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Rectificationâ€¦ I did need the 4x4 grid to align the vertical middle line easier

@jonray Iâ€™m down to about 37 seconds
(I made 20 pixels thick linesâ€¦ to make sure they are seen by everyone )

No - it just means you can divide it into 3 or 4 even boxes.

I do a â€śrandom sizeâ€ť with Church Services - have the Congregation or Organ as the main area, with a small rectangle (rounded corners?) with the Preacher in the top corner, during hymn singing.

Hi @musicalbox and @namna - Dammit, no, you are rightâ€¦ no border. My bad! Apologies. I must have dreamt it. Actually I think I glanced at @TimLauâ€™s image up in post no.4 and assumed there was a border.

Anyway, a perimeter border is a nice touch, right?

Nice animated borders! Like it!

You didnâ€™t use my border mask! (actually the 20-pixel border is great)â€¦ But I see you made a useful filter-set using Text:Rich filters for the white lines. What a cool idea.
That filter-set would be very useful to have if you feel like sharing itâ€¦ (hint, hint)

Will doâ€¦ This evening or tomorrow morning.
