You can also choose to use Premiere Rush, Premiere Pro, or Spark Video in place of Premiere Clip. For more information, see Adobe Premiere Clip End of Life.

Looks are color filters that you can create once and use consistently across as many projects as you want, giving them all the same visual styling. Adobe Capture mobile app lets you capture color and light from things that you see around you and save them as Looks. You can then use these Looks like filters to enhance the appearance of videos in Premiere Pro, After Effects, and Premiere Clip.

This article describes how you can enhance your videos with the Looks that you create using Adobe Capture, whether you are editing them on your mobile device using Premiere Clip or while working on your desktop using Premiere Pro or After Effects.

Organizing Looks in your Creative Cloud library

Your Adobe Creative Cloud account comes with online storage so that your files are available to you anywhere and on any device or computer. Whether you log in to your account from your desktop, tablet, or phone, Adobe Creative Cloud keeps all the files in sync. Any additions, modifications, or deletions are reflected on all connected computers and devices. For example, if you upload a Look file using Adobe Capture, it is automatically downloaded to all connected computers and devices.

  1. After logging in to Creative Cloud, select  Assets > Libraries.
  2. Create a new Library, or select an existing one.
  3. Rename, Share, or Delete Looks from the folders.

Using Looks from Adobe Capture in Premiere Clip

Adobe Premiere Clip app allows you to quickly create and edit stunning videos on your iPhone and iPad on the go. Using easy-to-use tools, tips, story cards, and templates in Premiere Clip, you can stitch a series of of-the-moment videos on your iPhone or iPad to tell a story.

To apply your Look to a video on your mobile device, open Adobe Premiere Clip (available for free from the App Store), and open an existing project or create a new one.

  1. Once you have the clips (or edited video) that you want, tap the Magic Wand icon.
  2. Select Looks from the top of the menu.
  3. Tap My Libraries to access Looks you have created in Adobe Capture, or to change libraries.
  4. Tap a Look to apply it to your video sequence.
  5. When you are ready to save or share your video, tap the Send icon to save your video to your camera roll, Publish & Share it to social media, or take your project further with Edit in Premiere Pro.
