    premiere elements 13 split screen


      Is there any way to split screen a portion of a video in premiere elements 13?  I know you can do it in iMovie, but it's not worth working with low quality resolution that iMovie produces. 


      What I am trying to do is include bullet points from a keynote/powerpoint slide into the video.  My ideas were split screen with the jpg of the slide on one side, a picture-in-picture effect with the jpg of the slide as the small picture, or an overlay of the bullet points text directly on the video.  (If it makes a difference, I am on a macbook pro)


      Any help is greatly appreciated, I have been struggling with this for a week or so.  Thanks in advance!
