Hi there
Can anyone give me a tip about simple-to-use software to record a split-screen video for Windows 10. I want to record a lead video and then a separate back-up one and sync them. I might also want to add tab/score to the video. The ones I see recommended are IMovie or Final Cut Pro X which are all for MAC.

First, decide on what software you'll use.

Then, look for tutorials on YouTube or perhaps a video production forum.

You can get a good idea of what's involved by checking out Fran Guidry's .

Doing self-duets using Reaper

The by-word here is "simple".  That's probably not going to be a easy thing to find.

Thanks for the link Rudy.

I've been getting confused as to whether I need film/video editing software (I already have audio recording software) and if so what to go for.  I don't really want a whole professional film editing suite!

Some of the "Audio" software does accommodate simple video editing, as Reaper does.  A lot of the video editing software is quite expensive and requires a very up-to-date PC (or Mac...) which translates to spending even more money.

It's really going to depend on exactly what you want your resulting video to look like.  After seeing a bunch of these types of teaching tools over the years I have to say I'm not a big fan of the picture-in-picture videos, they are just way too busy to effectively convey their meaning.  A good single screen video where the instrument fills the frame from corner to corner conveys the most information for me.

High quality HD does make a difference, since it can be displayed on a much larger screen, such as big screen TV so there's an almost life size view.
