I do have XML for the two side-by-side videos. Check out the following picture. Side-by-side Videos Screenshot

Assuming this is what you want, I was able to use a modified version of my previously posted "Cube rotate" transition. I set the progress to 50% (0.5) so that you end up with two videos showing side-by-side, each squished into their respective rectangles. <TransitionsAndEffects Version="1.0"> <Transitions> <TransitionDLL guid="{F088DE73-BDD0-4E3C-81F8-6D32F4FE9D28}" > <Transition name="Side by Side" iconid="41" comment="DXImageTransform.Microsoft.Stretch"> <Param name="stretchStyle" value="PUSH" /> <Param name="progress" value="0.5" /> </Transition> </TransitionDLL> </Transitions> </TransitionsAndEffects> Copy this code into Notepad, then save it in C:\Program Files\Movie Maker\Shared\AddOnTFX as sidebyside.xml. Restart Windows Movie Maker. To use it: 1) Put your videoclip1 and videoclip2 on the timeline. 2) Drag the new "Side by Side" transition to the timeline between the two clips.
