Sometimes you might want to quickly join several video files you have into one without the need to edit or re-encode them. Using AVS Video ReMaker you can do that quickly and easily. It will let you merge several files into a single one automatically. You can also cut the unnecessary scenes from these video files before saving them.

Step 2. Run AVS Video ReMaker and load the original video.

Click Start > All Programs > AVS Media > AVS Video Tools > AVS Video ReMaker
After you launch the program, you can select your video file using the Add File(s) button in the right top corner.

Note: If you want to re-make a DVD disc, you have to open the VIDEO_TS.IFO file from the VIDEO_TS folder. When the video is loaded, you can add more files or remove them from the project.

Note: All loaded files MUST have the same parameters - video format, picture size, aspect ratio, frame rate and bitrate. You cannot merge MPEG2 and AVI files, for instance, or two videos of the same format but with different resolutions or bitrates.

Step 3. Find the unnecessary scenes using one of the modes.
