So, you’ve filmed dozens of videos using your iPhone and wanna combine these videos on your iPhone for the latest Vlog on YouTube or Instagram? We’ve got you covered.
In this tutorial, we will walk you through the 3 best ways to easily combine videos on your iPhone and offer you actionable strategies to merge and edit videos on your iPhone into a compelling video that wows viewers on social media.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
How to Combine Videos on iPhone by iMovie
Well, the easiest and quickest way to combine videos on iPhone is using the pre-installed video editor--iMovie. It’s free and easy to use for everyone.
How to combine videos on iPhone using iMovie
Launch the iMovie app and tap Create Project and tap Movie.
Import the videos you wish to combine: Select videos from the camera roll > tap Create Movie at the bottom. Then clips will be added to the timeline.
Drag either end of the video inward to trim a clip.
Use the Split tool to cut a clip into two.
To reorder the clips on the timeline, tap and hold one clip until it floats and then drag it to the left/right to place it on the timeline.
Tap the transition icon between two clips to add a video transition (theme, dissolve, slide, wipe, fade) to combine two videos.
Tap Done on the top left corner and tap the Share button to export the merged video to your camera roll or other social apps.
Though using the built-in iMovie allows you to easily combine multiple videos into one on iPhone, it is not glitch-free.
iMovie doesn’t support vertical videos for edits. So, if you import a full-length vertical video into iMovie, the original video size will be cropped into a square video.
