Premiere Rush is designed as a cross-platform, multiple device video editing software aimed at social media content creators looking to process video clips quickly and upload them to their favorite social network.  It has both a desktop and a mobile application.  Premiere Rush is an outstanding option for a simplified video editing experience. It's not as powerful a program as Premiere Pro, but it is more intuitive and easier to learn for beginners.

Editing Clips

Adding clips and positioning clips is a simple drag-and-drop process. Creators can re-position clips, images, and motion graphics to work for them. The ability to adjust color and exposure of clips is super intuitive and very familiar.  You can add tasteful color-grading filters (LUTs) with a tap, or you can use sliders to adjust exposure and color options. 


Title screens and motion graphics are built into the app, or you can use your own motion graphics template. Premiere Pro templates work really well, too. You can edit text and colors in the templates fairly easily. You don't need to install your templates on your device if you don't want to. You can sync them to your Creative Cloud library if that's more convenient. Unfortunately, motion graphics templates authored in After Effects is not compatible.

Audio Editing

Audio editing is simple. Tap to add your audio clip whether it's a music track or a voice-over just as you would with any other nonlinear video editor. The beauty of Premiere Rush is due to the AI used to help make your audio sound better. Auto ducking is handled with just a tap where your music track automatically fades out when your video has dialog in it and then fades back up as the dialog stops.  Rush also has a background noise removal tool, which is one slider, and you can adjust it on the fly as your clip plays back.


Rush allows you to export your project locally to your device as well as auto-upload it to Facebook and YouTube.  Rush does a great job of handling the compression and other video specifications optimal for social networks. All you need to do is specify the orientation and the upload network.

Transitioning to Premiere Pro

If you're at a point where your Rush project needs a little more "umph" to get your message across, you can open your saved Rush project in Premiere Pro. Your edits will translate over to a new Premiere Pro project allowing you not to skip a beat in your workflow.  If you would like to learn more about Adobe Premiere Pro, see this article here.
