I suddenly can't merge clips in premiere pro, the "merge clips" option is greyed out. I've gone through the forum and everything pertinent seems so convoluted and unnecessarily complicated. I don't want to Nest the clips, or use multi cam, I simply want to be able to right click two or more clips on the timeline, and be able to select the "merge clips" option in the drop down again.
Hi Greg, I was having the exact same issue and had no luck finding an answer online. I actually solved the problem accidentally. In order to see the Merge function not greyed out you have to import the relevant files into the project window, and not be accessing them via opening folders that are pointing towards your stored files. The later way of accessing files is what is suggested to do in the Premiere Pro 2021 tutorials.
