When you launch Premiere Rush and start a new project, select and import your media. You can import media from your computer, a network location, or 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.
In Media Browser, browse and select the assets you want to import in the order in which you want them to appear in the timeline.
Premiere Rush marks all the clips in the order you select them and arranges them at the bottom of the screen in a storyboard.
(Optional) Select the following options:
- Sync with Creative Cloud: To save your video project to the cloud, select Sync with Creative Cloud. You can then access the project from all your mobile and desktop devices. All of your edits are synced to the cloud, so you always have the latest version of your project on any device.
- Copy Media: To save a copy of the selected media on your device, select Copy Media. This option is useful if you are importing media from a detachable device. Premiere Rush saves the media in the folder that you specify in the Preferences dialog box. By default, the media is stored in the Premiere Rush/Imported Media folder. For information about how to change this default location, see Set audio, input, output, and rendering preferences.
Do one of the following:
- Add the entire clip: Select the clip and click Add.
- Add part of an audio or video clip: Select the clip and click the Large Preview icon. Play the media and select a range. Then click Add. For more information, see Add part of a clip.
Premiere Rush adds the media that you have selected to the timeline. They appear where the playhead is positioned.
