如何使用qemu-img将一个整体式vmdk转换为拆分的vmdk

我在Windows 10 x64上运行VMware Player。

TL;DR: How do I convert a monolithic vmdk (3.7GB) to split vmdk(s) (2GB each) via qemu-img?

I downloaded a demo vmdk and hoping to test it out, I loaded it into a VM and pressed play. However, since my drive "can't support" monolithic vmdk files over 2GB, it wouldn't start up. Looking on the VMware site, I found instructions on how to so, however it only supported VMware Workstation. Given that I have QEMU (I don't use it often), I figured that I could use qemu-img to convert it to an acceptable format. I found a question on askubuntu that combines a split vmdk into a monolithic vmdk, however it seems unlikely that it would work backwards. Is it possible to split the vmdk up using qemu-img?
