If you’ve used any com­puter–based video edit­ing apps in the past then you’ll take to Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC like a duck to wa­ter. It has a clas­sic non–lin­ear video edit­ing lay­out, with a bin for stor­ing im­ported clips, a time­line to trim and re­ar­range the or­der of your clips, and a viewer to see how your pro­gram is shap­ing up. If you’re new to video edit­ing then Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC is a great place to start as it walks you through its im­port­ing and edit­ing tools with a tu­to­rial. In­deed, as video edit­ing apps go it is aimed at the novice rather than the pro as it is stripped down to the es­sen­tial video edit­ing tools. If you re­quire ex­tra bells and whis­tles such as the abil­ity to keyframe pic­ture–in–pic­ture ef­fects or per­form green screen com­posit­ing then opt for the more ad­vanced Luma Fu­sion.

Many of us source video clips us­ing our iPhone or iPad. Thanks to Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC you can film footage on lo­ca­tion, sit down for a cof­fee break, and start cut­ting your raw ma­te­rial into a slickly edited video. If there are prob­lems with a clip’s col­ors and tones then you can fix them with ease. Cold color casts can be warmed up and un­der–ex­posed shad­ows light­ened with­out blow­ing out the high­lights. Any tone or color cor­rec­tion ed­its that you

make can be saved as a user pre­set that you can apply to other clips in a tap. When adding a voiceover to link your clips to­gether, any com­pet­ing back­ground sound can be set to duck au­to­mat­i­cally when you speak. The app has a lim­ited col­lec­tion of tran­si­tions but it does pro­vide the es­sen­tial fade up, fade down, and the clas­sic cross dis­solve. A col­lec­tion of ed­itable pre­sets pro­vide ti­tles and cap­tions that add ic­ing to an al­ready well–made cake.

You may want to share the edited footage from your on– lo­ca­tion edit­ing ses­sion straight to so­cial me­dia sites such as Face­book or In­sta­gram. Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC en­ables you to cre­ate a cropped square ver­sion of your footage so that it will dis­play cor­rectly when viewed in a so­cial me­dia feed. Al­ter­na­tively, you can start edit­ing on your iPad and fin­ish your work from the com­fort of a desk­top copy of Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC, as you can run the app on two de­vices that share ac­cess to your footage via the Cloud.

Adobe Pre­miere Rush CC is worth down­load­ing as you can use it for free via the starter plan and quickly get to grips with its tools. How­ever, af­ter shar­ing three edited videos you’ll need to up­grade to one of Adobe’s paid plans be­fore you can share any more. Given that Pre­miere Rush CC has less color grad­ing pre­sets and fewer tran­si­tions than those in the free iOS ver­sion of iMovie we can’t rec­om­mend it as a must–have app, but it’s worth a look if you al­ready sub­scribe to Adobe Cre­ative Cloud.

Com­bine four video lay­ers with three au­dio lay­ers and mix us­ing tran­si­tions.

Grade col­ors and tones in a tap (or save your own cus­tom ver­sions).
