Premiere Rush video editing workflow

Workflow overview
Workflow overview

In a nutshell, the workflow in Premiere Rush includes the following steps:

Capture footage or import media

You can capture footage using any phone, DSLR, or mirrorless camera and bring the footage into Premiere Rush. Premiere Rush automatically separates the scenes for you into clips. 

You can also bring in audio files saved on your phone, or use the Premiere Rush soundtracks that are available from within the product.

For more information on bringing footage into Premiere Rush and for information about supported file formats, see:

When using Premiere Rush on an iOS device (such as iPhone or iPad), you can use the capture experience built right into the product. This feature gives you access to more control if you need it and a seamless experience of bringing your captured media quickly into a project. You can then edit the video on your mobile device, or switch over to Premiere Rush on your desktop. Projects sync seamlessly between desktop and mobile devices, so you always have access to your recent project edits across your devices, anywhere.

For more information on using the Premiere Rush iOS app, see Create and share videos on the go using Adobe Premiere Rush CC on iOS.

Edit and refine video

You can edit videos in Premiere Rush, and you have access to the same editing capabilities across your iOS and desktop devices. 

After you have brought in your video clips, you can keep the good parts, cut out the slow or boring parts, shuffle scenes around, and add audio and animated titles or motion graphics.

Edit your video in the timeline

After bringing your footage in to your Premiere Rush project, you can continue to add more clips, such as additional videos, images, graphics, or music. You can split clips, move them around, or trim them in the timeline. 

For more information, see Edit your video in the timeline.

Add and edit transitions

Add and edit transitions

Add transitions between clips to smoothly move from one clip to another. Generally, you use a simple cut to move from shot to shot, but you can also transition between shots by phasing out one and phasing in another.

Premiere Rush provides a few transitions that you can apply to your clips to enhance your video. For more information, see Add and edit transitions.

Add and edit titles

Add and edit titles

Easily add text overlays and animated motion graphics to your videos, and customize things like font, font style (bold/italic/underline), font size, and color. Easily edit text, and move, scale, and rotate title and graphic templates directly on the Preview monitor.

Take advantage of the professionally designed built-in Motion Graphics templates and access more customizable animated titles, lower-thirds, transitions, and graphics from Adobe Stock right from within the app.

Adjust color

Premiere Rush includes several color presets that you can easily apply to clips to give them a certain look and feel. Click on a color preset to apply it to your selected clip, and if you like you can tweak the intensity of the preset. 

You can also use additional editing tools to refine color further.

For more information, see Adjust a clip's color.

Crop, scale, feather, and tweak opacity

You can transform your clips in multiple ways. You can position your clips, change their height, width, or opacity, and crop or rotate video using Premiere Rush's transform controls.

You can also feather (smooth or blur the edges of your video) your clip. Feathering is a great technique to spotlight the middle of the video frame, and focus the viewer's attention to that point.

Export or share video

After you have completed creating your video, you can save it on your computer or directly share it on social media channels, such as YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or Behance.

For more information, see Share or export your video.

Step up from Premiere Rush to Premiere Pro

Premiere Rush is compatible with Premiere Pro. You can effortlessly open your Premiere Rush projects in Premiere Pro and take advantage of a greater variety of transitions and effects, more powerful color-correction and audio tools, multicamera editing, and a universe of third-party plug-ins.

For more information, see Open Premiere Rush projects in Premiere Pro.


Once a Premiere Rush project is opened in Premiere Pro, you cannot bring it back into Premiere Rush. This is because not all of the advanced editing controls in Premiere Pro are supported in Premiere Rush.
