How to join several video clips into one on Mac

Posted on: May 6, 2009

Have several video clips in your hand and want to join them to one?

Firstly, make sure that all the video clips are MPEG-4 and MOV video format
Because only MPEG-4 and MOV video can be imported to iMovie.

If your video clips are not MPEG-4 or MOV, then just convert them in batch. Here is a guide: How to convert WMV, M2TS, MKV, AVI, FLV, etc video to import to iMovie on Mac.

Secondly, create a project file for iMovie.
Step 1: Click on the iMovie icon in the dock and wait, while it bounces, for the application to open. Select “Create Project.”
Step 2: In the “Save as:” field, enter your_name for the name of the movie.
Step 3: We don’t want to save to the default “Movies” folder. Next to the “Where:” dropdown, click on the downward pointing arrow on the end for more options. Back the blue bar at the bottom all the way up to the left, select the firewire drive, and click “New Folder.” Enter your_name for the name of the new folder (in which all your files will be stored) and click “Enter.”
Step 4: Now click “Save” and you should see the empty iMovie interface with “iMovie:yourname” at the top.

Thirdly, start to edit video clips and join them to one.
Then you can do editing with your video clips and join them togther.
For detailed tutorial, please refer to Apple iMovie guide.
