You can use Premiere Rush seamlessly on your desktop and Android devices. You have access to the same features across your computer and mobile devices. When you use Premiere Rush on Android, you can also capture videos with more control right from within the Premiere Rush app.
Premiere Rush syncs all your projects on all of your devices. Any edits you make on your Android devices are automatically synced to Adobe Premiere Rush on your desktop. For more information, see How project syncing works in Adobe Premiere Rush.
You need a Creative Cloud membership to sync Premiere Rush projects across all of your devices.
Before installing Premiere Rush, check that your device meets the system requirements.
After you have launched the app and signed in, tap the plus (+) button at the bottom of the screen to create a project.
You can then choose Add Media to use already captured media on your device, Creative Cloud, or Dropbox. Or you can directly shoot photos or videos into a new project by tapping on Take Video or Photo.
The selected clips appear at the bottom of the screen. Once you’ve made your selections, type in a project name and tap Create to import them into your project.
Sync with CC enables you to access your project with the most recent changes from all of your mobile and desktop devices. Premiere Rush automatically separates the scenes for you into separate clips on to your timeline.
To add existing photos or videos to a project, tap Add Media. You can select multiple photos, videos, and music clips.
To take photos and videos, use Premiere Rush's built-in capture functionality, instead of using your device's native camera app.
You can use AUTO mode to set your focus and white balance with just one tap and then shoot. You also have access to a PRO mode with features that give you more control, such as ISO, shutter speed, white balance, resolution, and frame rate.
You can use the AUTO mode for basic capture controls. For advanced settings such as shutter speed, white balance, resolution, frame rate, and ISO, toggle on PRO mode. For more information on the camera settings, see Capture options.
A grid dividing the screen into thirds is overlaid on the screen to be used as a guide while you shoot.
- Flash Off: Flash never fires when you take pictures or record videos.
- Flash Automatic: Flash only fires in low light situations.
The flash on the back camera stays turned on, whether you are shooting or not. It is helpful for capturing videos in dark situations where you need extra light.
Shutter speed controls the duration of light your camera is exposed to. You can adjust this duration to achieve the desired creative effect in your photos and videos.
C: Auto Exposure
If you don't want to manually control the exposure options, toggle on Auto Exposure.
C: Auto White Balance
If you don't want to manually control the PRO white balance options, slide Auto White Balance to the right.

You can fine-tune the duration of a clip in your timeline by moving the clip’s start point or end point. This process is called trimming.
To select a clip on the timeline, tap it. Orange handles appear around the clip when it is selected. To trim away a portion of a clip, go to the beginning or end of the clip and tap and hold the thick orange handle and drag it to the right or left.
You are not trimming the original video. You can drag the orange handles outward to extend the trimmed clip.
Splitting is useful if you have added a clip to a project but don’t want to use the entire clip all at once.
To split a clip into two, drag the playhead to the place you want the split to occur. Swipe-right on the bottom toolbar and tap the Scissors icon.
After you split a clip, you can rearrange the two separate clips and move them around your timeline.
Duplicating a clip before editing is a great idea as you can retain the original clip and do "before and after" comparisons while editing.
Long-press a clip on the timeline. In the pop-up menu that appears, tap Duplicate to create a copy of the clip. The duplicated clip appears on the timeline after the original clip.
To delete a clip, tap Delete from the pop-up menu to remove the clip from the timeline.
If you are not satisfied with the available fonts, you can access more fonts from Adobe Fonts. To find more fonts, tap the Creative Cloud icon next to Add Adobe Fonts from the Font menu. Then tap the Activate icon once you choose a font. The font is then added to the font list in Premiere Rush. You can use these activated fonts not just in Premiere Rush but in other Creative Cloud apps as well.
You can add transitions between clips to blend changes from one video clip to another. The transitions options available are cross dissolve, dip to black, and dip to white.
To add a transition to your clip, do the following:
To add a transition to only one side of a clip, drag a transition style and place it over the edge of a clip.
You can see a white highlighted section on your clip that shows you where the transition will be placed before you drop it. You may need to zoom into your timeline to more easily drag, drop, and preview transitions on your clips.
You can also adjust the following settings manually to further enhance the look of your clip (you can do this with or without a preset selected):
- Exposure: Adjust the exposure of the clip.
- Contrast: Adjust the contrast of the clip.
- Highlights: Adjust the brightness of the light areas in the clip.
- Shadows: Adjust the darkness of the darker areas in the clip.
- Temperature: Fine-tune the white balance by moving the slider to the left to make the video appear cooler, and to the right for warmer colors.
- Tint: Fine-tune the white balance by moving the slider to the left to add a green tint and move it to the right to add a magenta tint.
- Vibrance: Adjust the intensity of the more muted colors in the clip with less effect on the higher-saturated colors.
- Saturation: Adjust the saturation of all colors in the clip equally from 0 (monochrome) to 100 (double the saturation).
- Faded Film: Apply a faded film effect to the clip.
- Sharpening: Adjust edge definition to create a sharper-looking video.
- Vignette: Amount: Set the amount of lightening or darkening along the edges of an image.
- Feather: Define the edge of the vignette. A smaller value creates a harder, sharper edge, whereas, a larger value indicates a softer, thicker edge.
If you are unsure of the clip speed that you want, manually edit the clip duration to set a specific duration for your clip and let Premiere Rush determine the right speed changes to make for you - based on that duration. To edit the clip duration, tap the minutes, seconds, or frames values and type in your changes.
If the clip contains audio, playing the clip more slowly lowers the pitch of the audio, and playing the clip faster raises the pitch. To preserve the original pitch of the audio, the Maintain Pitch check box in the Speed panel is enabled by default. If you don't want to preserve the pitch, disable this check box.
Set the mood for your videos by adding music. You can add music saved on your device or choose from the soundtracks that are included with the app.
You can edit your audio clips just like any other clips in your timeline.
To refine an audio clip, select it in the timeline and tap Audio on the bottom bar to open the Audio controls. To open the Audio controls, double-tap on the audio clip itself in the timeline. You can now access all of the audio refinement tools.
To learn what you can do with these audio options, see Edit your audio tracks.
Tap the Export icon at the top of the app. Select one of the following quality settings:
Automatic Default setting that matches the media in your timeline.
- 720p Match frame rate
- 720p 30fps
- 1080p Match frame rate
- 1080p 30fps
Tap Export, and Premiere Rush starts to render and export your video.
Once rendering is complete, your video is saved to your device and you are ready to share your video on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or Behance.
