As a leader in the industry of editing software, presumably Premiere Pro is preferred by a great many users. People smoothly create and edit videos with the assistance of it. More recently, some say that Premiere Pro seems to only combine audios with video instead of merging several separately recorded videos. Is that so? Of course not. So then how to merge clips in Premiere Pro on earth? Please read through the following, in which not just the exact steps to do it with Premiere Pro but also another method to merge video clips is presented.
Part 1. How to Merge Clips in Premiere Pro
As an industry-leading video editing program developed by Adobe, Premiere Pro serves to film, web, and TV. Geared towards the professional field, it has the ability to edit high-resolution videos at up to 10240×8192 resolution (maximum dimensions in Adobe Premiere Pro) and supports 3D editing when working with plug-ins of Cineform's Neo line, which allows users to experience the fun of viewing 3D videos by 2D monitors.
Beyond that, its plug-in architecture enables it to work well with a variety of video/audio formats and codecs on both Windows and Mac. Certainly, only the editing function is not enough to take it to stand out among its peers. Also, all of these like joining, creating, capturing videos, adding titles, and applying filters with other effects can be realized with Premiere Pro. On today's topic, below is a step-by-step instruction on how to merge clips in Premiere.
Step 1 Launch Premiere Pro and create a sequence
Run Premiere Pro. And then create a sequence and add your video clips to the timeline.
Step 2 Create another sequence
