How to Combine Video Clips in Power Director

by John Ruiz

PowerDirector 8 is an application by CyberLink for editing and enhancing videos. The software features a timeline view where you can drag various video clips to create a presentation. You can also split clips into various segments, which adds another layer of creativity. If you want to merge these clips back together or merge different clips into a continuous stream, PowerDirector allows you to do that as well.

Step 1

Switch the workspace view to "Timeline View" by clicking on the icon that looks like a timeline. Use the "Library Window" above the timeline to find the clips you wish to merge.

Step 2

Drag each clip to the timeline to prepare them for merging.

Hold the "Ctrl" key on your keyboard and select two clips imported in the timeline using the left mouse button. Right-click on any of the selected clips and choose the "Combine" item to merge the clips together.
