For this example, we select 2 Mains + 1 Ticker.
Then give your Split Screen a name, this is the name will be shown in Asset list.
Next for each zone, select the type of content you want its to play.
*Note that you cannot assign a SplitScreen inside a SplitScreen.

You can adjust the Zones position, dimension if you'd like. The number here are in %. (not Pixels), this is to ensure the scale will work regardless of screen resolution (1080p or 4K or other tablet type resolution). The player will maintain the appropriate scales for you.

SplitScreen commonly will be accompanied by a Scrolling Strip. You can read more on how to create a Scrolling Strip here.
