    I'm actually watching this, and one thing I want to try that I can't find, is how do I put two or three files one after another. let say I filmed many clips and I want to make them all in one file.!!?

    Ok… I dont get it.!!! Lets say I have three clips I've filmed, How do I use footage from all of them and make it a single file.!
    All i find is how to edit one file at the time and how to play with it and export it… but no ways to take many files and make them as one.!!!
    I've tried to find the info online and everywhere on the software, but nothing.! Is it possible.??

    Can I remove the sound from my videos? I know I can add background music but is there a way to remove the existing audio that was recorded?

    Its too bad,I lived n breathed nikon for more than 20 yrs. Now,nikon is just one disappointment after another. Cheap products and nikon has stopped caring about its customers like me. Never again will i buy or touch anything made by nikon. I hope this company gets what it deserves,bankruptcy! NEVERNIKON

    Perchè i filmati modificati e salvati con la Utility, se li ricarico nella utility stessa non riesco più a visualizzarli?

    The trim function doesn't seem to work properly for me. I trim, then save the trimmed video, but it only saves a 230kb MP4 file which is totally black.   Any ideas what's going on, or how to get round this?
