I just did this up really quick for fun. It's an Effect plugin, has a ReadMe file telling you how to install it, use it, etc.

Basically it comes from a post here asking how to do this. I gave the long answer of how to do it manually, then slapped this overly simpnlified Effects template together.

Two drop zones, one at the top, one at the bottom, drop the same clip in each and they're split horizontally in the middle. Tint them as you wish. It shows the original clip in the middle between them.

I tried really quickly to link the two Drop Zones together so that you could just add one source to fill both, and adjust the positioning of both at the same time. But alas, I can't see a way to link two drop zones like that. The positioning I can, and will do in a future update.

So if anyone does any modifications to this, please post here, let me know. I'd be very interested to see what others do with this.

Looks fantastic, can't wait to use it.
Thanks for the work, Ben.

I suggest you have a drop zone that you make two clones of.

Make the drop zone invisible and manipulate each clone to do what you want.

In this case you'd link the Y parameter of one to the other using a Scale of -1 to negate the Y value.

clone layers were my initial attempt. Problem is they line up exactly with each other, including cropping.

I can use a Link parameter behavior in a Rig to adjust both top and bottom Y positions at the same time, but then thought there may be times I don't want perfect symmetry between the two.

Clone layers start off the same as their sources, but can be cropped, moved and have filters added to them. That's why it's best to make two clones of your drop zone clip. The source of the clones doesn't have to be visible for the clones to work.

I didn't find that behavior, but I'll have to look at it again. Like I said, I slapped this together in 2 minutes and don't really have time now to refine it. Too much paying work stacked up. Please feel free to do what you want with it.

With this effect, I like to have the option of 2 different videos playing, & also be able to animate the movement of the split.

What do you mean 2 different videos?

Yeah, there's a lot that could be done with this, again, I don't have the time to devote to it. Thus, again, everyone is welcome to modify it in any way they want. Let me know, I'd be interested to see what other do with it.

I mean 2 different vids like it appears you have in the sample above.
But being able to animate the split's movement across the screen, either vertically or horizontally.

Could be interesting. Maybe I'll have some time to beef it up really good this weekend.

OK, I didn't think anyone would really give a rat's rear about this effect. But since I've gotten so much advice and great suggestions, I'm devoting some time this weekend to beefing this thing up really well. Look for a newer, betters, bigger, meaner, badder, goodder, "...you know something whatever" version on Monday.

Feel free to add suggestions between now and then.
