How to make a video collage.

Learn how to use video editing tools in Adobe Premiere Rush to create your own video collage in minutes.

Stitch it together with a movie montage.

A collage allows you to show multiple video clips at once. As with a photo collage or photo grid, you can easily arrange your clips into a collage layout for a fun, memorable video effect that opens up new avenues of creative editing.


Whether you want to make a slideshow of your travels, create an Instagram story full of memories for a friend’s birthday, or make YouTube videos that wow your viewers, a quality video montage is just a few clicks away with the right moviemaker app at your side.

Round out your collage with video effects.
