    Oh My!! This version (2) is just the best split-screen effect available. The incredible updates to the original Split are over the top. Seems like I got several free plugins just by upgrading. On top of that – your tutorial was the best I have ever seen. I wish other developers would spend the time to generate great tutorials for their products. I am just going to buy it again so you get paid for your fabulous work and I’ll be able to sleep with a clear conscience. Clearly you are someone who cares about their customers.
