If you have two or more videos (or images) that you would like to put next to each other and merge into one video, you can easily do this using Clipchamp.

All you have to do is add the videos to your project, then drag and drop them into the timeline one after the other. Once the clips are placed next to each other on the timeline, they will play as one clip when exported.

For more detailed instructions with images, see below.

Step-by-step guide: turning two videos into one video

After logging in to Clipchamp and starting a new video, follow these steps:

Step 1. Add the videos to your video media library

Click on the plus icon (+) or the Add Media button.

Close up of add videos

Then click Browse my files in the sidebar menu, or select from Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Google Photos, or your smartphone.

Close up of adding media options

In the browsing menu that opens, find the videos on your computer. Select them and click Open.

Step 2. Add your video clips to the timeline

Once your videos are in your My media tab, drag and drop each clip onto the timeline. The clips will automatically snap into place next to each other.

If you have multiple clips, you might need to use the + and – buttons on the right-hand side of the timeline to zoom in or out. You can also click the Zoom to fit button for viewing the entire timeline.

Make sure not to leave any blank spaces between video clips. There will be a blank screen between clips when previewing your video if a space is left. These empty black gaps will remain in your video once exported if you don't fix them.

TIP: you can also trim or split the videos to remove unwanted parts, or add filters, text and other effects (see how to edit a video for more information).

Step 3. Export your video

Once the videos you want to combine are in the timeline, click the Export Video button in the top right of the editor.

Your video will start exporting and you will see a progress bar with a percentage.

After the video export is done, your video will be automatically downloaded to your computer. Your two videos have now been combined and saved as one .mp4 (MPEG4) video file.
