iPad Console: How do I apply a split screen to a project?

Looking to apply a split-screen effect to your SlingStudio project? Take a look here.

Using the SlingStudio Console app split screen feature lets you display two, three, or four video sources in one screen. You can also set up a classic picture-in-picture arrangement, in which you can position the secondary video image anywhere on the screen.

To use the split screen feature:
  1. Get your project ready to go, with all sources online:
    1. Launch the Console app on your iPad.
    2. Tap a video source so that it appears in Preview.
    3. Tap the Toolbar. If it is not visible, tap SlingStudio Console 3-dots icon in the upper-right corner of the Preview window and select SHOW TOOLBAR.
      You see the Toolbar (note that this figure labels each function in red text—you don't see this in the app):

  2. Tap the split screen icon.

    Options

    Split screen control

    Choose:
    -- Whole screen
    -- Two columns
    -- Three columns
    -- Quadrant
    -- Picture-in-picture (PIP)


  4. Tap the split-screen configuration that you'd like.
  5. Drag the video sources into the video panes however you want. You can use a video source more than once. You can also leave panes blank, without a video source.
  6. For the two or three screen options, move the dividing line(s) between screens to the proportions that work best (or leave as is).
  7. For the picture-in-picture option, resize the secondary image as you wish, and then drag it to any location over the primary image.
  8. When the images look the way you like, tap the checkmark icon to save. To start over, tap the X icon.
  9. When you tap Preview -> Program, the split screen arrangement that you've created displays in the program.
