How do I adjust the audio levels in a cut clip in Adobe Premiere?
To adjust the audio levels in a cut clip in Adobe Premiere, you can follow these steps:
- Select the clip in the Timeline that you want to adjust the audio levels for.

Is it possible to merge or group multiple cut clips together in Adobe Premiere?
Yes, it is possible to merge or group multiple cut clips together in Adobe Premiere Pro. To do so, you can follow these steps:
- Import all the clips you want to merge into your project.
- Drag and drop the clips onto the timeline in the desired order.
- Arrange and align the clips as needed.
- Select all the clips you want to merge by holding down the Shift key and clicking on each clip.
- Right-click on one of the selected clips and choose "Nest" from the context menu. This will create a nested sequence with the selected clips.

Note: This method allows you to group multiple clips together, but if you want to physically merge them into one continuous clip, you can use the "Export Media" function in Premiere to export the nested sequence as a single file.
