Video Merger

Joining video files together is as easy as combining text when you use Descript as your video merger. Add seamless transitions, music, and effects to produce compilations, video presentations, highlight reels, and more—whether you’re merging 2 or 200 video clips into a single timeline.

How to merge multiple videos into one

Step 1

Upload videos you want to merge

In a new project in Descript, upload the video files you want to merge by dragging and dropping them into the timeline. You can also Record new audio or video clips, or click the Media icon to add stock media, like audio, GIFs, images, and video. As you upload, Descript will generate a transcript for easier merging and editing.

Step 2

Cut & combine your clips

You can make most of your cuts in the transcript by simply deleting or rearranging the text to delete or rearrange them within the editing timeline. Add a ‘/’ to create new scenes for more control over where specific clips cut and transition. You can use the timeline editor to adjust the start and end times of a video by dragging either side of a video clip to trim or extend it.

Step 3

Polish & export your combined video

You can add text or animated captions by clicking the Text icon, or add music or sound effects from our extensive media library to find something that suits your video. Once you’re happy with how everything looks and sounds, click Publish to download your video or upload it directly to a supported platform like YouTube.

Questions? We have answers
How many videos can I merge in Descript?

There’s no limit to the number of videos you can merge using Descript. Join videos from previous projects, screen recordings, or record directly into the video as often as you like. Create new projects and compositions whenever you need to keep files separate or experiment with a different approach. You can combine videos whenever needed by adding a new file directly from the text editor.

What's the best file type for exporting a merged video?

For the best quality output with the video combiner, export your videos at 4K for crisp, clear resolution. If file size is a concern, Descript can export a wide range of resolutions so everything fits your specifications neatly. Alternatively, you can share your video directly as a web link, or publish it to popular video hosting platforms, including YouTube, Wistia, and eWebinar.

How long can merged videos be in Descript?

You can create videos that are several hours long or longer using Descript. Depending on your plan, there may be a limit on how many recording and transcription hours you can use in any month: 1 hour per month on the free plan and 30 hours on the Pro plan. Beyond that, you’re welcome to merge videos for whatever length you need.

Does Descript store my original videos after merging them?

When you combine videos using Descript, your uploaded files are stored locally on your hard drive and in the cloud. You can find all your original files in the Media library to use in future projects.

Can I merge videos for free with Descript?

You can merge videos for free using Descript. The free tier includes access to the software’s most popular features, including remote recording, AI green screen, and filler word removal for phrases like “um” and “uh.” Limits apply to the free tier, but you can upgrade at any time and still have access to all your footage and projects.
