You can now use Amazon Elastic Transcoder to stitch together two or more input clips to create a longer clip in the desired output format(s). You can do this by specifying multiple inputs when creating a transcode job on Amazon Elastic Transcoder. Clips are stitched together in the order that they are specified in the job request. For each input, you can specify a Start Time and a Duration, which allows you to stitch together only the parts of each input that you want included in the output. You can leverage clip stitching to create highlight clips or add bumpers and trailers to your videos as part of the transcode process. 

There is no additional cost for using this feature - you only pay for the duration of the transcoded output at the current prices for audio, SD, and HD transcoding.
