How to merge videos and save the merged one
on Feb 24, 2016 at 2:09:52 pm

Hi
I have 3 mp4 video files that have the same properties. I grouped them but can I just save the groped file without rendering it again?
Thanks

Save it as a veg file giving it whatever name you want to. As long as you don't delete any of the original files, it'll open up the same way when you are ready to render.

This is not my point. I do not want to render it. I just want to save it as a new mp4 file. Is it possible?
Thanks

Not in Vegas.
You can do this with mp4box or ffmpeg (read here)

Thanks. I feel that rerendering it is the simplest way. Hope it won't compromise the quality of originals

It will. There will be some quality loss. Whether it's important to your or not is your call. The best approach is to use software that will smart-render these files such as VideoReDo or TMPGEnc's MPEG Smart Renderer 4. It basically copies the bulk of each file and only "re-renders" where the files actually join.

There are a lot of GUI frontends for those 2 programs.
For example, MP4Joiner (it's free)

When you have all your videos on the timeline I do a "Save As" and then check the box that says "copy media with project"
That way if you have any stray audio events, sound effects, or anything at all, it will save the entire contents of what you have on the timeline in one file folder.
There have been many times when I had some music or some stray video event in my project that I didn't realize was in some other file folder which I eventually deleted and then when I went to open the project it wasn't there.
Doing the Save as and checking the copy media with project prevents that from every happening.
