Hi, I saw a Disney clip on two different videos put together like split screen and one character from one video walks into the other video then back to the first video. I would like to do that effect but not sure how to. I appreciate any help you can give me. The following is the Youtube address where I saw this effect. Thank you.

Hi,
Are you talking about doing actual animation/cartoon techniques (as in the Disney example) or about a general "moving of a character from one style to another"??

If you are looking at the general non-animation technique try this approach:
Use 2 copies of your video.
Style 1 video on T1
Style 2 video on T2
Apply a mask to Style 2 video to give the split screen effect between the 2 styles

The finished effect will depend on your content, so in this quick example, Style 1 street scene is styled with color painting effect and Style 2 is left normal.
The mask is applied to Style 1 and sized and formatted to suit.


Does that help as a starting point?

Yes, your download is exactly what I was trying to do. My daughter figured out how to do it, and it turned out exactly like the download you sent me. When you mentioned split screen, we didn't use the split screen feature, we duplicated the video and cut off half of one video (no masking) and made it look like a cartoon. We are going to now try to change the background of the 1st video. Unfortunately, Cyberlink in my computer started stalling whenever I used the masking technique and I ended up losing a lot of time and had to start the masking over again and the same thing kept happening. So now I'm looking for an online program that can remove the background,so that I could change the color and use it as a green screen to get another background. If you know of any program, I appreciate any help you can give me.

Thank you very much for your help. Vivian

Hi,

I have no experience using any online program but I can give an quick, silly and very rough example using PDR365 and ColorDirector and a mobile phone clip. CDR has a user defined paint mask feature that can apply a blue/green screen automatically.
https://forum.cyberlink.com/forum/posts/list/85279.page

So, in this example, replace the hazy background of the Atlas mountains with a green screen using the paint mask feature and mask motion tracking function.

Using the previous technique (which I know doesn't work easily for you!!) but just for illustration purposes, we can do a split screen sky replace in a panorama shot over Marrakesh from the tower in Le Jardin Secret.

Combining the two techniques makes it looks very rough and not something to be recommended but it does illustrate the potential, given a complex horizon and absolutely no fine tuning at all !!

Maybe other members can offer more suggestions to help you along the way?

Cheers

Hi, Thank you very much for your help. I used the ColorDirector and the mask motion tracking function and the tracking was pretty bad - I had to fix each frame and it took a long time, so I decided to just use a green screen next time for part of the video and then finish the remaining of the video without the green screen so when I cut the video in two, I will save the green screen one with a background and then save the 2nd one in a cartoon or animation style. Hopefully, this will work.

Thank you very much. Vivian
