Using Adobe Premiere Clip

Watch a tutorial to learn how to quickly create and edit videos with Premiere Clip.

  1. Tap the + icon in the upper right-hand corner of your screen.
  2. Add media from the following options: From your mobile device, Lightroom, Creative Cloud files, or Take a Photo or Video.
  3. After you’ve selected your media, choose a project type: Automatic or Freeform.
Note: If Automatic is selected, Premiere Clip will generate a great video for you, edited to the beats of your soundtrack. You can customize the pace, music, and sequence order. If Freeform is selected, you will have full customizing capabilities at your fingertips including trimming, splitting clips, applying custom Looks, smart audio effects, and more.  
You can move a project from Automatic to Freeform for further editing. Simply tap on the Filmstrip icon in the upper-right hand corner of your screen when working in Automatic mode. Once you’ve converted a project from Automatic to Freeform, you will not be able to go back to Automatic.

You can add videos and images to your project. Browse for media on your device, use the camera to shoot footage, select from your Lightroom collection, or download from your Creative Cloud assets folders. 

  1. Tap + to add media.
  2. Browse and select media on your device, from Lightroom, Creative Cloud assets, or use the camera to shoot. 

To use music or an audio track in your Premiere Clip project, it must be synced to your device’s music library (for iPhone users, this means synced via the iTunes desktop app). Creative Cloud does not currently support importing audio files into Premiere Clip. Also, at this time, Clip does not support downloaded songs from an Apple Music subscription.

Audio formats supported: AAC, MP3, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV

You can add title cards to display text content in your videos.

In the Freeform editor:

  1. Tap + in the bottom right-hand corner of your screen.
  2. Tap New Title or the Aa icon.
  3. Enter the text, and then specify the Text Color and Background Color.
  4. Use the purple handles to adjust the duration of the clip. 

Storycards are useful tools to help plan your shoot. In the Freeform editor, you can turn a title card or a still image into a Storycard. You can then add notes, shoot against the title card, and replace it with footage.

  1. Select either a title card or an image.

Premiere Clip makes it easy to have a watermark and bumper automatically added to all new projects. Asset selection and the setting for automatically applying the branding features are saved as user preferences. You can also enable or disable each feature and update to a newly assigned on an
individual project basis.

To configure the branding features, tap the Clip icon in the upper left corner of the Project Browser, then Preferences, and then Bumper or Watermark.


To select a video, tap Premiere Clip to use the app’s default bumper or Custom to pick your own. Browse to the asset on Creative Cloud or Dropbox, select it, and tap Add.

To have the bumper automatically included in new projects, turn on the option “Append Video Bumper.” You can also turn the bumper on or off within each project.


To select the logo graphic, tap Creative Cloud or Dropbox, browse to the asset, select it, and tap Add. In the Watermark dialog, the selected graphic will be shown relative to a 1920x1080 frame.

To have the watermark automatically enabled in new projects, turn on the option “Apply Watermark.” You can also turn the watermark on or off within each project.

At the Project Level:
