    Question: I have a Canon M50. I made a video. Rather than making ONE file, it was saved as 3 separate files. I was hoping to just upload the video to FIchannel, but as 3 files that is not possible. How do you edit the three files together so I have ONE file.

    • Justin Brown - Primal Video

      You can just drag these three files into your editing timeline and it will create one video 👍

      The subscribe is added in FIchannel, if you go to FIchannel Studio at the bottom left corner press settings, then channel, then branding and in there you can add a subscribe watermark 👍

    I wish that there would be a video editing software that could have clips where u can put black rectangles to cover up something like passwords or personal data and it could have you get the clips and place them in order of how you would like them, and also the ability to edit and stuff. My dream video editing software.
