1. Install the Software for Joining Videos
Open the installation file. Follow the installation instructions and in a couple of minutes the program will be ready to help you with combining video into one file.
2. Upload the Files to the Program
Launch the program and choose Create project in full feature mode. Then click Add Media Files and select the files you want to join together. The video you’ve chosen will be automatically added on the Timeline at the bottom of the program window. You can also simply drag your video from the folder and drop it onto the Timeline. You can change order of the video segments by dragging them around in the working area.
3. Add Transitions
When all the clips are in the desired order, you can insert stylish transitions between them to smooth out the joins. To do this, open the Transitions tab and choose the transitions you like from the different categories. To add a transition, click on its icon in the library, drag it to the Timeline and place it between two video fragments. You can also do this automatically by clicking the Transition Wizard button above the Timeline. Doing so will open a dialogue window that lets you either add random transitions between all your clips or select one transition style to be inserted between all the segments.
4. Save the Edited Video
To save your video in the format of your choice, click Export. In the upper part of the pop-up window, you will see tabs with different export options which let you save your video for mobile devices, prepare it for uploading to the web, etc. You can choose any video format, including AVI, MPEG, WMV, MP4, FLV, and MOV, or save your file as an HD video. Click on the preferred tab, choose the target format or device for export and click Start.
