You can bring in your video clips, photos, graphics, and audio files that you have stored on your computer or your external drive. You can also bring in media from your Creative Cloud, Dropbox, iCloud Drive, and Google Drive using the Media Browser in Rush.
If you are trying out Premiere Rush for the first time, you can bring in the sample media packaged with Rush to create your first video.

The left side panel includes the following main sections:
- Local: Media is saved on your local computer.
- Cloud: Media stored in the cloud such as in Creative Cloud, or iCloud.
- Network (only shown if more drives are mounted to the device): Media stored in network-mounted drives.
The right side displays your content.
You can use the filters on the lower left to filter and sort your media:
- Sort: You can sort media by name or date created.
- Filter: You can filter media by all media, videos only, audio only, or images only.
The Media Browser allows you to quickly and easily find the media you want to use in your Rush projects. You can preview the media in the media browser before bringing it into a project by clicking the expand preview button under each clip (on desktop) or long/force pressing a clip (on mobile). From there, you can also select a certain portion of that clip if you only need a short snippet of a longer video clip.
When you launch Rush and start a new project, select and import your media. You can import media on your computer or in the cloud (such as Creative Cloud or iCloud). If you are connected to an office network, you can also import media from a network location.
Rush marks all the clips in the order you select them and arranges them at the bottom of the screen in a storyboard. It allows you to preview how the media is going to be assembled in the timeline.
If you are not satisfied with the order of the assets, you can deselect them by clicking them. You can then select your assets again in the order in which you want them to appear.
When you add media, you can choose to add only a portion of the clip. For more information, see Add portion of clip to existing project.
Select Sync with Creative Cloud if you want your video project to be saved to the cloud so that you can access it across your mobile devices and desktop. All of your edits are synced to the cloud, so you always have the latest version of your project across your devices. Select Copy Media if you want to save a copy of the selected media on your device; it is useful if you are importing media from a detachable device.
To add media to your project while editing, click the + icon in the left toolbar, and then select Media. The Media Browser opens on the left of the application. Use the navigation buttons at the top to view folders and select your media. After you have selected all of your media, click Add.
Rush adds the media that you have selected into the sequence. They appear in the timeline where the playhead is positioned.
