You can copy and paste (i.e. duplicate) video clips and other media items on the timeline of our video editor – see below for instructions and screenshots. 

You can also make copies of an entire video project. Please see this help article to learn how: Can I save different versions of my project?

How to duplicate a timeline asset

Step 1. Click on the items on your timeline you would like to duplicate.

On the timeline, click on the asset you would like to duplicate. They should be highlighted in green.

Step 2. Click the duplicate icon

Duplicating a timeline asset will copy and paste the media to the right of the existing media on the timeline. Copies will include any edits (e.g., trims, cuts, or filters) you've applied to the original.

You can also copy and paste multiple clips at once. Simply click on the control + A or command + A keys on your keyboard, or drag your cursor over all of the timeline assets.

Next, click duplicate. Your copied assets will be to the right on the timeline.
