To combine clips in Premiere Pro there are some basic steps that must be kept in mind. Combining video clips is called creating a nested sequence; this is quite a powerful process.

  • First, you need to drag and drop the two or more clips that you wish to combine onto the timeline.


    • Right-click on any selected clips and choose “Nest…” from the drop-down menu that appears.


  • You’ll now notice that the background color has changed to green to indicate that the two videos have been merged.


The good thing about a nested sequence is that it can be re-edited and will automatically be updated in all other sequences as well.

How to merge audios with video in Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Now, with the latest version of the software being introduced which is Premiere Pro CC it has left its previous version CS6 behind in a few categories. The new updated version introduces added features such as morph cut, color workspace, multi project workflows, GPU optimized playback, Creative Cloud libraries etc. All the new features of the latest version help enhance the user experience.

The command provided by the Adobe Premiere Pro CC for synchronizing video and audio clips is called "Merge Clips". The clips that you originally start with before merging them are called the component clips; they make up the singular merged clip at the end using the Merge Clips function.

  • Only one video clip can be merged with a maximum of 16 audio tracks.
  • So, you first select the video clip and then shift or control click (for Mac OS command instead of ctrl) to select the audio clips which are required to be merged.
  • To use the "Merge Clips" command you simply : Choose Clip > Merge Clips


  • The Merge Clips dialog box will open; select your required setting and click "ok".
