Combining multiple clips requires good software that also offers technical skills like adding color grading for all. Consider using Wondershare Filmora Version 13 for this purpose, as it introduced a new concept of Compound Clip. It can combine multiple clips for easier management and enables you to keyframe them as a single unit, unlike its older version.

Now, let us illustrate how to animate a scene using a compound clip. We will show you how to animate an object by merging it into a single layer.

Get the Filmora V13 in Your System

If you want to utilize the latest features in the compound clip option, then ensure that you have switched to Filmora v13. Find out the latest version of Filmora from its official website and download it for free.

Explore the Compound Clip Option

In the previous version, if you intended to move an object, then you must move its parts separately. However, Filmora V13 offers easier steps now, and you just must select all the PNGs. Right-click and find the "Create Compound Clip" option from the list. Alternatively, you can press the Alt + G from your keyboard and name your compound clip.

Adjust the Compound Clips

You will notice that your selected objects will merge into a single layer with all parts. Using the Compound Clip panel, adjust the "Scale," "Position," and "Rotation" to animate the objects collectively with keyframes. Additionally, you can apply color grading by utilizing the color options. Adjust the colors using values of Hue, Saturation, and Luminance sliders, which will not affect other clips.

To edit the Compound Clip, you can double-click on it or head to the main timeline and select the object there.
