Chapter 8. Working with Visual Tracks > Placing Visual Tracks Side by Side

Placing Visual Tracks Side by Side

You may want to display two visual tracks side by side, particularly when you analyze visual data. To do this, simply place the two tracks in the same movie (as described in the Chapter 7) and then position them (see “Flipping” earlier in this chapter). The following exercise reviews those steps:

To place visual tracks side by side:

1.
Open two movies.

2.
Select data from one movie (see “Selecting and Deselecting Data” in Chapter 6).

3.
From the Edit menu, choose Copy.

4.
Click in the other movie, move the Current Location indicator to the far-left end of the Time slider, and choose Edit > Add (Figure 8.14).

Figure 8.14. Use the Add command to place two visual tracks in the same movie.


The added visual data is layered on top of the existing visual data.

5.
From the Movie menu, choose Get Movie Properties to open the movie’s Properties window.

6.
From the left pop-up menu, choose the added visual track (the one lower in the list); from the right pop-up menu, choose Size.

7.
Click the Adjust button (Figure 8.15).

Figure 8.15. In the Size panel of the Properties window, click Adjust.


8.
Click inside the movie window to make it active.

9.
Click any part of the added image (except one of the red marks) and drag right or left to position the image correctly (Figure 8.16).

Figure 8.16. Drag the top track to the right or left to position it next to the original track.


The movie window expands to display both images.

10.
Click inside the Properties window; then click Done.
