As said earlier, ActivePresenter 8 has many functionalities for video editing, ranging from basic to advanced. And in the previous post, you’ve learned about four basic audio and video editing tools. So, in this tutorial, we will quickly walk you through how to split and join videos in ActivePresenter 8

Now, let’s get started!

Split Videos

In regard to making videos, sometimes it’s necessary to split one video into several parts. For example, you want to save each of them as a single file and then use them for different purposes. So, here are the simple steps to split a video into multiple parts:

Step 1: Select a video and specify the timestamp where you want to split the video.

Step 2: In the Timeline pane, click the Split Audio/Video Objects button. The video will be split into two separate objects. However, the timeline still places the two objects in the same object line.

Step 3: If you want to move the latter part to a new object line, right-click it > Move Up/Down into a New Line.

Join Multiple Videos

Indeed, joining multiple videos into one is just a breeze with ActivePresenter 8. To do that, check out the below steps:

Step 1: Select all the videos that you want to merge. Remember to hold down CTRL or SHIFT while clicking to select multiple videos.

Step 2: Click the Join Audio/Video Objects button. As a result, all the selected videos will merge together based on ascending order of their start time. In other words, the video with a smaller start time will play first in the combined video. As can be seen, these red marks show where videos join.

Here are some cases you may encounter when you join videos:

  • If videos have the same start time, ActivePresenter will sort videos by their z-order in ascending order. Hence, a video with a lower stack order will appear prior to the one with a greater stack order.
  • If videos don’t have identical properties such as width, height, or resolution, the combined video will use all the properties of the first video that plays. In other words, the output video will apply all the properties of the video having the smallest start time.

That’s it. So, you’ve known all the simple steps to split and join videos in ActivePresenter 8. Feel free to contact us if you have any obstacles. In addition, visit our YouTube channel to get more useful tutorial videos.
