How do I join video clips?

This may be for the sake of video continuity, or it may be an unintentional idea. Sometimes we need to link to more than one video clips. However, how do we quickly combine video clips to create current inspiration? The main timeline in Windows Movie Maker is rich in functions, which can help you insert and rearrange video clips effectively through the following three steps.

Step 1: Import the video

As you click "+"  to import the video, it can be placed on the main timeline spontaneously.

Or you can directly drag it to the timeline.

And click "Add to Timeline" to determine the video position on the timeline.

If you need to adjust the sequence of multiple videos, tap "Sort" and choose to arrange them by Name, Type, Duration, Created time, or just to ascend and descend videos.

Step 2: Adjust the timeline

At the top right of the time bar, you can move the button left and right to zoom in and out videos on the timeline.

Or, more simply, click the two-way arrow to zoom to fit the timeline.

Then click the video and drag it to change the video placement order.

Step 3: Preview and enhance

At length choose one in the middle line of a few effects.

In short, joining video clips together is the process of placing videos in the timeline, organizing them in order, modifying, and previewing the whole video. Take videos on the timeline as a whole and the position and duration of the effect depend on its starting point and length on the timeline.
