Step 2. Add your media to the timeline

Drag and drop your media assets onto the timeline one after the other. Placing your media side by side automatically merges videos.

Save time with grouping and ungrouping

Never have a clip out of place ever again with the group function. Merge your video clips, then easily group them in one simple click. Freely move the entire video around your timeline without losing the order of your clips. You can also ungroup assets anytime and make changes to items outside the group.

Preview your video in full-screen mode

Ensure your video is accurate and polished before exporting by watching the playback inside the editor in full-screen mode. All you have to do is click on the full-screen button or minimize your timeline and sidebars using the arrows. 

Instantly export and share your video in HD

Pro videos require HD exporting options. Choose from 480p, 720p, and 1080p video resolutions to instantly export your video to your device. You can also share your videos through the exporting page to platforms like YouTube and LinkedIn, or via the sharepage link or embed code. If your video’s less than 15 seconds, save it as a GIF for easy social media sharing.
