Many of us have a bucket list of places that we’d like to visit in the future. Little by little, when we get the chance to travel, we can cross off a dream destination on that list. While unrestricted international travel is not a possibility currently, looking back on the video footage we’ve captured during past trips can give us something to look forward to for future travels.
If you’ve ever considered putting your video footage together in a more creative way, a video montage is a great option — it allows you to create a digital entry in your virtual book of memories that can be easily shared with others.
But, how to get started with the process? Below you’ll find a few of our tips and tricks for putting together a professional-quality travel video montage in no time!
1. Place all of your video footage in one convenient location
Devoting time to placing all of your video footage in one well-organized place will help you to work more efficiently as you move through the project. Create a designated project folder on your desktop — or a preferred location on your computer that is easily accessible — where you can work from. Move all the video files that you wish to work with here.
Next, make sure that the title of each video is descriptive enough that you know, without needing to open and view the file each time, what the clip includes. If at this point you have a general idea of the sequence that you would like to arrange the videos in, you can also include a number in the video title.
2. Find online video content to complement your own
Once you have moved and organized your video files into the project folder, you may notice that some of these videos end abruptly or that the quality varies from video to video. If that’s the case, YouTube is a great place to find “filler” content, or content that will complement your own. There you will find countless travel videos differing in duration, style and language — you’re bound to find something that will fit right in with your own footage!
To add these videos to your project folder, look no further than Replay Media Catcher, the fastest and most powerful online media recorder of its kind. With the program installed, all you have to do is play an online YouTube video and a copy is downloaded to your computer. It’s that simple!
3. Compile and edit your video montage like a pro
Finally, once you have all of the files you need — from both your personal collection and online — you can get started on the fun part: getting your hands dirty and creating the montage itself! With Replay Media Splitter, the task is as easy as it gets and you get professional-quality edited videos in no time — no overpriced film editing software needed.
With Replay Media Splitter you can extract or remove portions of audio and video files. With a visual display, and an easy way to include and exclude segments of your media, you’ll be slicing and dicing video and audio files in minutes.
Here’s a quick summary of the editing process to follow:

- Add Markers to split your media into Segments.
- Include or exclude segments.
- Output the resulting file.
It really is that straightforward. For more information, our user guide is here to help you through the process.
