How do you do the same thing using the split edge ring tool. so for example, if you want to make a loop, but ensure the split is exactly half of the edge, what would you do? Am I making sense? __________________ arran3D arran3D blog

Of course this percentage is based on the shortest edge in your chosen loop. There is no way at present as far as I know to set exactly 50% and have it be right on all faces of the loop.
