Merge your videos with Video Edit Master

Combine multiple videos into MPEGs or AVIs with this simple program.

It doesn't seem like it should be that difficult to merge to multiple video files into one, but without the right software, this task can be a real pain. Fortunately, Video Edit Master makes this task manageable even for people who know absolutely nothing about video editing. A quick trip to the Help file might be required, but just about anyone can use Video Edit Master to combine videos -- or even parts of videos -- into one finished product.

Video Edit Master's interface isn't particularly flashy or sophisticated, but it's easy to navigate. Simply select the source files you want to work with and then use arrow buttons to either add them to the list of files to merge or move them over to the video editor. The editor lets you select specific chunks of videos and add them to the merge list, which is great if you want to cut out commercials or other undesired material. Once you have all your source video ready to go, simply arrange it all in the proper order and click Make Movie. The program will prompt you to choose a file name and a destination location, giving you an option to save your new video as an MPEG or AVI. There are a couple of extras that make Video Edit Master particularly nice to work with: when editing, you can increase the play rate of your video, which makes it easier to deal with large files; and video volume can also be muted or adjusted. Neither of these features affects the final video, but they do make the editing process a little easier. Overall, Video Edit Master isn't going to meet the needs of people who do heavy-duty editing, but it's a great choice for casual users who simply need to merge a few videos into one file.

Video Edit Master comes as a ZIP file. It installs a desktop icon without asking but uninstalls cleanly.
