You can use Premiere Rush seamlessly on your desktop and iOS devices. When you use Premiere Rush on iOS, you have access to unlimited free exports, and you can capture videos with more control right from within the Premiere Rush app.
Premiere Rush syncs all your projects on all of your devices with a paid membership. Any edits you make on your iOS devices can be synced to Adobe Premiere Rush on your desktop. For more information, see How project syncing works in Premiere Rush.
You need a Creative Cloud membership to sync Premiere Rush projects across all of your devices.
You can install Premiere Rush from the Apple App Store.
Before installing Premiere Rush, check that your device meets the system requirements.
Once you have completed installation, launch Premiere Rush and sign in:
- On your iPad or iPhone, tap the Premiere Rush app icon.
- Sign in with your Adobe ID, Facebook account, or Google account.
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.
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.
Select Sync with CC to access your project with the most recent changes from all of your mobile and desktop devices.
To take photos and videos, use Premiere Rush's built-in capture functionality 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.
You can use the default AUTO mode for basic capture controls or toggle on PRO mode for more settings, such as shutter speed, white balance, resolution, frame rate, and ISO. For more information on the camera settings, see Capture options.
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 pictures or record video.
- 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. This process 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 have added a clip to a project but don’t want to use the entire clip all at once.
To split a clip:
- Drag the playhead to the place you want the split to occur.
- Tap the clip and select Split from the pop-up option.
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.
To duplicate a clip:
- Tap 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.
To delete a clip:
Tap Delete from the pop-up menu to remove the clip from the timeline.
You can add graphics like titles, transitions, and overlays. To add graphics to your project, do the following:
Tap the Graphics icon, and tap the Add Graphic + button. A window opens with a list of titles, transitions,and overlays. You can search across all graphics categories using the Search bar.
You can also search for specific assets like titles, transition graphics, etc by tapping the Browse All dropdown button. You can save an asset and access it later from Saved.
Tap a title from the list of options. Tap Add. A new title clip is added to your timeline at the location of the playhead.
(Optional) Tap More to open a full-screen window that displays additional title templates available for download from Adobe.
If you are not satisfied with the available fonts, you can access more fonts from Adobe Fonts. To find more fonts, tap the Creative Cloud icon next to Add Adobe Fonts from the Font menu. 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.
Tap a transition graphic from the list of options. Tap Add. A new transition graphic clip is added to your timeline at the location of the playhead.
(Optional) Tap More to open a full-screen window that displays additional transition graphics available for download from Adobe.
Tap an overlay from the list of options. Tap Add. A new overlay clip is added to your timeline at the location of the playhead.
(Optional) Tap More to open a full-screen window that displays additional overlay templates available for download from Adobe.
You can add transitions between clips to blend changes from one video clip to another.
To add a transition to your clip:
When you import a still image, Premiere Rush automatically adds a Pan and Zoom effect to it. You can then edit the intensity, start, and end of the Pan and Zoom effect.
- Import a still image into Premiere Rush.
- Play back the timeline to see the Pan and Zoom effect on the image.
- Select the image clip and tap Effects > Motion > Pan and Zoom. You can see the Start and End boxes appear on the clip in the Program Monitor.
- To control the direction, focus, and scale of the effect, move and resize the Start and End boxes.
To quickly switch between the Start and End boxes, tap Go to Start or Go to End in the Effects panel.
To remove the Pan and Zoom effect from the image, tap the image, tap Effects > Motion, and deselect Pan and Zoom.
You can also adjust the following settings manually to further enhance the look of your clip (you can do this with or without a preset selected):
- Exposure: Adjust the exposure of the clip.
- Contrast: Adjust the contrast of the clip.
- Highlights: Adjust the brightness of the light areas in the clip.
- Shadows: Adjust the darkness of the darker areas in the clip.
- Temperature: Fine-tune the white balance by moving the slider to the left to make the video appear cooler, and to the right for warmer colors.
- Tint: Fine-tune the white balance by moving the slider to the left to add a green tint and move it to the right to add a magenta tint.
- Vibrance: Adjust the intensity of the more muted colors in the clip with less effect on the higher-saturated colors.
- Saturation: Adjust the saturation of all colors in the clip equally from 0 (monochrome) to 100 (double the saturation).
- Faded Film: Apply a faded film effect to the clip.
- Sharpening: Adjust edge definition to create a sharper-looking video.
- Vignette: Amount: Set the amount of lightening or darkening along the edges of an image.
- Feather: Define the edge of the vignette. A smaller value creates a harder, sharper edge, whereas, a larger value indicates a softer, thicker edge.
If you are unsure of the clip speed that you want, manually edit the clip duration to set a specific duration for your clip and let Premiere Rush determine the right speed changes to make for you - based on that duration. To edit the clip duration, tap the minutes, seconds, or frames values and type in your changes.
If the clip contains audio, playing the clip more slowly lowers the pitch of the audio, and playing the clip faster raises the pitch. To preserve the original pitch of the audio, the Maintain Pitch check box in the Speed panel is enabled by default. If you don't want to preserve the pitch, disable this check box.
Set the mood for your videos by adding music. You can add music saved on your device or choose from soundtracks, sound effects, and loops that are included with the app.
You can edit your audio clips just like any other clips in your timeline.
To refine an audio clip, select it in the timeline and tap Audio on the bottom bar to open the Audio controls. To open the Audio controls, 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.
For editing flexibility, you can separate audio that is attached to a video clip. Separating audio allows you to edit the audio track independently from the video (allowing you to layer audio clips one over the other, swapping audio clips around, and more).
To separate audio:
- Tap the video clip (that includes audio) on the timeline.
- In the pop-up menu that appears, tap Separate Audio.
You can modify the appearance of your clip by cropping, rotating, or scaling. To make these types of adjustments, select the clip in the timeline and tap Transform.
- Fill: This option adjusts the frame to scale height.
- Fit: This option adjusts the frame to scale width.
- Horizontal Position: Adjust the horizontal position of the clip.
- Vertical Position: Adjusts the vertical position of the clip.
- Rotation: Rotates the object 180° when dragging to the right and 180° when dragging to the left.
- Opacity: Adjusts the opacity of the clip from 0 to 100%.
- Scale Width: Adjust the width of the clip.
- Scale Height: Adjust the height of the clip.
- Horizontal Flip: Flips the content across the Y-axis (left/right).
- Vertical Flip: Flips the content across the X-axis (up/down).
Once rendering is complete, your video is saved to your device (camera roll) and you are ready to share your video on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or Behance.
