Often, you may want to combine cool videos you’ve just shot or captured to make a movie or extended video clip. Joining videos and creating fun messages, short films, or video collages is a great way to spend time, but to make it really enjoyable, you need a simple and effective tool to merge video files.
We know how to do that. Movavi Video Editor offers an easy way to join your videos together and also lets you edit movies in many different ways.
Download Video Editor for Windows right now and learn how to join videos using our simple step-by-step guide.
Step 1: Install the Software for Joining Videos
Download Movavi Video Editor and launch installation file. Setup the program following the Installation Wizard's instructions and just in couple of minutes the program will be ready to help you with combining videos into one file.
Step 2: Choose the Files You Want to Join
Click Add Media Files and pick the files you want to join. If you want to work with a DVD video, use the Add DVD option. To join several 3D videos click the corresponding button. The Movavi software contains two editing modes:
- The default Timeline Mode can help you with combining your videos with music and different kinds of captions located on separate tracks.
- The more simple Storyboard Mode is ideal for joining several videos and applying special effects, filters, and transitions. To simply join your videos, use the Storyboard mode.
Now go to the Media tab and drag your files to the working area in order you want them to be joined.
Step 3: Join the Videos and Add Transitions
As you moved your files into the working area, you can join them. It takes just a couple of clicks – just add stylish transitions between the clips. To do this, open the Fades panel, drag the transition you want into the working area, and place it between any two video fragments. Then click the chosen transition in the working area, expand the Settings panel and set the timing and other animation parameters. That’s all there is to it.
Step 4: Save the Edited Video
Now save your video in the format of your choice. Click Save Movie, then choose from these variants: save as a video file, save as 3D video, burn to DVD, upload to your YouTube, Vimeo or Facebook, or convert for viewing on your mobile phone or tablet.
It doesn't matter if you joined only the AVI files or video fragments in different formats, the resulting file will be saved as a video file or converted for a mobile device in the format you've chosen. Select the required output preset in the pop-up window and click Save.
You can choose any video format, including AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, FLV, MOV, and different formats of HD video. When the file is saved, the folder containing the joined video will open automatically.
