I note that in the U.S., the evening TV news is using a lot of split-screen effects lately. Also, in the movie Military Wifes, split-screen effects are used near the end to show many different choirs singing the same song.

Yes, it's a good effect and has become standard since CoVid-19. One of our local TV networks has station IDs that have a range of multiscreen choirs. However to do that will either require rendering or specialised hardware. Or, as I said earlier, careful planning. You can't just plug shots in. You need to design it, and then use the tools that you have to create it.

It would be easy to create an effect that would give wberthin an array of seven small images laid out along the top and left of the screen. It would then be a matter of overlaying a DVE to add the eighth larger image, and would work. However they want a single effect to do it, and that isn't possible in Lightworks. I can't immediately think of any tools out there that can do exactly what they want. However this is what it could look like, using just Lightworks' own tools.

It would of course be possible to create an effect template to do it, in the same way that Lightworks does with its quad split effect. That would only be limited by the ability of the PC to access the media without stalling. The effect shown above could have been done exactly that way, since I just used nested 2D DVEs. That is, except for the mask, which again I created in Photoshop.
