are split screen effects possible?

Hi been working with vegas pro since the spring and loving it! I've polished off two docs with it with hardly a hiccup and a Blu-ray project for a local museum, but was wondering if there was a way to do a split screen effect in Vegas? I really wanted it for my last project and now have two clients lined up for heritage shoots who are asking if I can do it for them. Can I do it in Vegas or do I have to look elsewhere? Thanks for the help.

Dale.

You can apply the 'Cookie Cutter' effect to the top clip of 2 clips on different tracks and apply your different effects to the clips to make them look like Split Screen. Cookie Cutter will allow for a Border if need be or Feathering of the edge.

Cool - will try both those suggestions! Could it have been that simple all along!?!?!?
