1Import your media files

Click “Import” to browse your file folder or simply drag and drop all files into the primary window. This program supports a vast array of media files, including WMV, MOV, MP4, AVI, MKV, MTS, DV, TS, 3GP, M4V, and more.

When you load all of them, they will show as thumbnails in the Media Library. Now drag them to the Video Timeline and get ready for step 2. Note that by default, all files in Video Timeline will be merged together without any stop.
