Need a way to merge multiple video clips to make a tutorial, slideshow or promo video, but don’t want to download any software? We’ve got the easiest tool to combine videos and photos, trim them to the perfect length, and even add special effects like titles and transitions—right in your browser.
How to merge videos online
Step 1. Import videos or select stock footage
To import your own videos, photos, and GIFs, click on the import media button in the your media tab on the toolbar to browse your computer files, or connect your OneDrive.
You can also use free stock media like video clips, photos, video backgrounds, and GIFs. Click on the content library tab on the toolbar and click on the visuals drop down arrow, then videos, photos, or backgrounds. Search through the different stock categories using the search bar as well.
Drag and drop your media onto the timeline side by side. By placing media next to each other on the timeline automatically combines two or more clips to form the one video.
Step 2. Edit your video
To rearrange the order of your combined videos, simply drag and drop the media file again. You can swap the order of your timeline as many times as you like.
To trim the length of your videos using the video trimmer, click on the video on the timeline so it’s highlighted green. Move the green handles to the left of the timeline to trim the video length. To trim multiple assets at once, try the multi-item editing feature. Hold down the shift key (Windows) or command key (MacBook) on your keyboard, then click each asset on the timeline then using one of the green handles to trim.
If black spaces appear on your timeline after trimming, your videos may not appear to be combined anymore. Use the gap removal feature to delete any gaps by clicking on the trash can icon on the timeline.
Place transitions between each clip to add extra personality to your merged video. Click on the transitions tab on the left sidebar. Drag and drop a transition onto the timeline between two clips.
Step 3. Preview and save your merged video
Before saving your new video, make sure to preview using the full-screen mode. When you’re ready to save, click on the export button and select a video resolution. We recommend saving all videos in 1080p video resolution for the best quality. Paid subscribers can save in 4K video resolution.
