Hi, I have four short pieces of video footage that are very compressed, they have no sound and are all the same length. I would like to convert them to vcd but the picture has to be quite small otherwise it just turns in to blocks. So instead of watching four small films one after another I was wondering if there was a way to put them side by side on the screeen at the same time, it would be great If I could get all four on in each corner of the screeen but just 2 next to each other would be great. Anyone got any idea if this can be done. I very much doubt theres freeware that can do this, maybe a free demo/trial programme? If not then I guess I'll have to reach into my pocket and buy a programme that can do it but is there one?
Any help gratefully appreciated.

Take a look at Videomach from
I don't have it installed myself at the moment and can't remember the options to use.
It can do as you want though and it's freeware - the 30 day expiry doesn't happen!!
Post again or email me if you need help using Videomach.
I agree, Avisynth is free and pretty easy to use.

Ulead Mediastudio Pro and I assume Adobe Premiere allow you to have up to 99 different videos on the screen in whatever size. With Mediastudio, using paths, you can have one move over another.
If you want to play with it there is a demo on the www.ulead.com site (only time crippled, not feature crippled to my knowledge).
