When it comes to easy-to-use video editing software which can still produce quality projects, Windows Movie Maker finds itself at the top of nearly everybody's list.

While Windows Movie Maker allows you to cut, trim, rotate and combine video clips ect, in this article, we will focus on how to combine multiple clips within Windows Movie Maker, in order to produce the best work possible.


Part 1: An Easier Way to Combine/Merge Video Clips - Using Wondershare Filmora

To combine several video clips into one with Filmora is easy, just drag-n-drop your video clips to the timeline in sequence order and then export. Done! But with Filmora, you can do more editing other than combining or merging. Filmora shares many of the same benefits as Windows Movie Maker including the one of the best aspects of both products: It is easy to use, and very intuitive for those who are working on their first project.
