Join multiple videos together

Making a single video rarely involves shooting a single video. Descript makes it easy to join multiple videos together in editing. Just drag and drop them into your project, quickly cut the parts you don’t like by editing the text, and just as quickly add transitions to smooth over the jumps between scenes. Download Descript to take full advantage of our free video joiner capabilities.

How to merge 2 videos (or more)

Step 1

First create a project in Descript. Start merging videos by dragging and dropping your first piece of footage into the project. If your video has spoken audio, Descript will automatically make a transcript.

Step 2

Drag your next video in, and either drop it at the end of the transcript or in the timeline next to the first video. Repeat until you get all your video clips in the workstation.

Step 3

With the videos together in a sequence, you have them merging already. Still, you can also insert transitions or layer the videos in multiple stacked layers.

Step 4

Once you’re done editing and polishing, press Publish. You can export an MP4 file, publish a shareable web page, or upload directly to YouTube. Descript lets you set the file size, dimensions, and quality.

Express yourself using Descript

Multitrack

Descript’s editing software allows you to create multiple layers of sound and visuals. You can add audio filters, mix audio volume and video opacity, and resize videos so various pieces are playing in the same frame. It’s an all-in-one video-audio merger.

Transitions

With Descript’s video combiner it’s simple to insert transitions with adjustable durations between clips. Get cinematic with a slow fade across two faces, or add a poignant fade to black at the end of your slide show.

Non-destructive

You’re bound to make mistakes and regrettable choices when you edit. Descript keeps all your original footage safe on the cloud, so you can restore cuts and changes any time. Your original files will always be there.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I combine multiple videos into one?

When you have videos on multiple layers, you can adjust opacities and keyframe animations to cast shadowy impressions of both appear at the same time.

If you want both images to appear next to each other, you can also drag two videos to separate parts of the screen. Consider the order of layers when doing this, as the top layer will crop videos beneath it.
