Does anyone here know how I can combine like 4 AVI files (or any video files for that matter) into 1 video file? I want to have like a 4-way split screen video file, but I want to be able to see the entire video stream in each little box, not just a part of it. Does that make sense? Kind of like a 4 player game on the N64 or something. Please let me know if you know how. Thanks!

Hmm, probably not the most elegant way, but in Premiere you could set one video track to a corner using the 'motion' option, then repeat it on 3 other video tracks in 3 different corners.
Ta-daa!

Well, If U r using premier, u could put the 4 clips on different layers.

Using video motion, for each layer, scale them to 50% for both the start and end points. Next, adjust the start and end x,y position values so that each video layer occupies one quater of the screen size. (Scale of 50% = 50% width * 50% height = one quater screen)

Hope it helps
