Adobe offers severals apps, including cloud-based desktop tools and more mobile-friendly solutions, and its latest is Premiere Rush CC.
Available right now, Premiere Rush is a desktop and mobile app "designed specifically for online video creators," with export options optimised for everything from YouTube to Snapchat. It's essentially an all-in-one video editing program with motion graphics and audio mixing capabilities. It has some of the oomph found in Premiere Pro, AfterEffects, and Audition, but it primarily offers easy, one-click feature adjustments.
It’s powered by Adobe Sensei, an artificial intelligence framework that’s built into the Creative Cloud platform, and is compatible with Premiere Pro. You're also able to move across devices (mobile or desktop) with Premiere Rush CC.
Here's what else you need to know about it.
