Combining clips is the basic of edits, and you always have to merge multiple slices together to recreate a compelling work, such as footages from phones, drones, camcorders, DSLR. There is a whole slew of programs capable of doing the job on Windows (10) PCs or Mac computers. Some well-known programs include Shotcut, OpenShot, Windows Movie Maker, iMovie, and VSDC Free Video Editor. For ease of use and efficiency, we recommend VideoProc.
There are many video clips of the same activity that need to be merged together with or without re-encoding for the better viewing experience, for example,
Short clips shot by iPhone, iPad Android phones, cameras, DSLR, GoPro, etc.
Tutorials, training video, presentations, gameplay footages, and the like.
Separate TV shows and movies downloaded free from online video sites.
Converted movie chapters and TV series on DVDs, and others.
VideoProc can simply put video clips together without worrying about different file formats, resolution and video audio settings.
VideoProc can also cut out unwanted slices of a clip and merge the remaining segments into one video so that you can get your favorite parts of any footages joined. This is very helpful when you wish to remove a few seconds or minutes of dead time at the beginning of your video or unpleasant phones/drones/GoPro camera droop at the end. Or you just want to get a shorter video with smaller file size for storage space saving, sharing to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, etc. Use steps below to use to achieve this.
On the right side of the Merge Video window, click the Resolution button, and choose the resolution for output from the drop-down list. Note that all the clips are combined into one video in MP4 format. Click the Done button to save the settings.
It's quite surprising that VideoProc boasts the "MKV Multi-Track" feature, enabling users to merge multiple videos, audio and even subtitle tracks into one MKV container. If you don't change other video audio settings, the quality of the output will be the same and speed is super fast since it just changes the container format without re-encoding. Follow steps below to learn how to do it.
