If there are black spaces in between your video clips, you can use the intuitive gap removal feature. Simply click on the trash icon to delete the empty space and combine your video again.

If you’re happy with how the video clips are combined into one full video, you can export and save in 1080p HD from the top right corner of Clipchamp. But if you want to create a more polished video, add transitions to enhance it and make it engaging.

Step 4. Add transitions between your assets

You can add transitions between each video asset to make the video flow smoothly. Head over to the transitions tab located on the left sidebar, and then drag and drop a transition onto the timeline between two clips.

Step 5. Export and save your video
