There're two ways to make a video collage in AceMovi: add media to the timeline or put them on a split screen. To add your media to the timeline, you can directly drag and drop them one by one. Or you can press Ctrl+A to select all the media files and drag them to the timeline. Then move the media files on different tracks and make sure that they start and end at the same time. Now what you need to do is to adjust the position and scale of each track to make sure that they can all appear on the screen.

The second way, go to Split Screen on the left menu and drag and drop a split screen pattern to the timeline. A new window will pop up, there you can directly drag and drop your media files into different split screen windows. Then click OK to finish.
