Merge Two Different Videos Together Using Adobe Premiere Rush


Adobe Premiere Rush


How to merge two different videos into a single video.


The Video Editor in MiVideo does not have this capability. Instead use video editing software such as Adobe Premiere Rush, which is demonstrated in this article. See the Adobe Premier Rush section below for more information about obtaining this software. Other video editing software applications can also be used to edit the two sources in a similar fashion.

Note: before beginning, both videos should be saved locally on your hard drive.
