You can use Premiere Rush seamlessly on your desktop and iOS devices. You have access to the same features across your computer and iOS devices. When you use Premiere Rush on iOS, you can also capture videos with more control right from within the Premiere Rush app.
Premiere Rush syncs all of your projects on all of your devices, so any edits you made on your iOS devices are automatically synced to Adobe Premiere Rush CC on your desktop.
You need a Creative Cloud membership to sync Premiere Rush projects across all of your devices.
You can install Premiere Rush from iTunes.
After you have launched the app and signed in, tap the plus (+) button at the bottom of the screen to create a new 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.
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. 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.
Use Premiere Rush's built-in capture functionality to take photos and videos 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.
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 a picture.
- 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 for which your camera is exposed to light. You can adjust this duration to achieve the desired creative effect in your photos and videos.
Automatically calculates the level of exposure based on your ISO and shutter settings.
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 shoot 480p, 580p, 720p, 1080p, or 4K videos using the Premiere Rush camera. The default resolution is 1080p.
Frame rate is the number of individual frames included for each second of video you record. The most common frame rates while shooting video are 24, 25, and 30 frames per second. The default frame rate is 30 frames per second.
You can fine-tune the duration of a clip in your timeline by moving the clip’s start point or end point. It 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’ve 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.
TIP: If you are not satisfied with the available fonts, you can access more fonts from Adobe Fonts. To find more fonts, tap Adobe Fonts. 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
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.
Tap the plus (+) icon. Then tap Media > Audio > Add. The audio clip is added to an audio track in the timeline.
You can edit your audio clips just like any other clips in your timeline.
To refine your audio clip, select it in the timeline and tap Audio on the bottom bar to open the Audio panel. To open the Audio panel, 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.
You need a Creative Cloud membership to sync Premiere Rush projects across all of your devices.
Click the Export icon at the top of the app and then 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. Wait for a few moments while Premiere Rush renders your video. Do not close the app or lock your phone while rendering is taking place.
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.
For more information on export options while exporting to these social media channels, see Export or change your video.
Syncing your projects in Premiere Rush lets you create, edit, and share your videos anywhere. It's a great way to:
- Capture footage and edit videos while on the go.
- Edit the videos further later on your desktop.
- Share your videos from your mobile device to Facebook, Instagram, and other social media channels.
All changes you make in Premiere Rush on your iOS device are reflected in Premiere Rush on the desktop. Any changes made in Premiere Rush on the desktop are synced to mobile as well, so you always have access to your latest edits wherever you go.
To ensure that your projects get synced across devices, make sure that Sync with Creative Cloud is selected (by default, this is turned on) while adding media to the project. If you had turned it off but would now like to access your project on another device, on the Project browser screen, tap the three dots next to your project on the Project Browser screen and tap Turn sync on.
All of your projects are linked to your Adobe ID, which is your user ID that you create with a Creative Cloud membership.
If you use multiple Adobe IDs and want to sync projects across multiple devices, make sure that you are logged into the same Adobe ID account in Premiere Rush on all of your devices. On a given device, you see only the projects for the account that Premiere Rush is logged into.
Premiere Rush syncs both the project and its media to Creative Cloud, so that you can work seamlessly across all of your devices. Media that has been synced is saved to Creative Cloud. Media files are saved to either Creative Cloud or Dropbox. Project files are synced to Creative Cloud Files.
Premiere Rush does not copy media imported from Creative Cloud or Dropbox to managed storage. It is because your media are already in a stored cloud service and your systems can directly access it from the cloud service.
A synced project is saved on the cloud, making it available for you to edit on all of your devices. A project that is not synced can only be opened and edited on the device on which it was created.
In Your Projects (after launching the app), you see icons next to the project name that indicate the sync status of the project.
|Sync Icon on mobile||Sync icon on desktop||Project Sync Status||What happens when you tap or click the project?|
|Device only and not in the cloud, so this project cannot be accessed on other devices||Project remains only on this device until you turn sync on. Turn syncing on for this project by going to Your Projects and tapping on "•••" > "Turn sync on."
|Device and cloud, so this project can be accessed on all devices||Opens the project with the latest edits, whether those edits were made on this device or another device. For more information, see How do I resolve sync errors?|
|Cloud only and not currently on the device, but this project can be accessed on all devices||
Downloads the project to the device and opens it.
|Syncing in progress||Opens the project, and syncing to the cloud continues until completed.
If the project version on your device is different from the project available in the cloud, Premiere Rush alerts you that a newer version of the project is available. You can then save a copy of your project in its current state, or overwrite it with the version that is saved in the cloud.
- Click Save copy: To create a copy of your project in its current state. Premiere Rush creates a copy of the project, so you have two separate projects in your project browser.
- Click Overwrite: To overwrite the currently opened project with the version of the project that exists in the cloud. It closes the currently opened project and takes you back to Your Projects so that you can open the most recent/cloud version of the project.
