Adobe Premiere Rush

Adobe Premiere Rush was added to roster of applications in Adobe Creative Cloud last fall. It is a less technical, easier-to-use video producing application. This clever app creates professional-quality video on your mobile devices. Editing is easy, with simple tools for color, audio, and motion graphics. Share right from the app to social channels like YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. Creative Cloud now also includes Adobe Spark Premium, which allows users to have their own branding in the Adobe suite of video and photo tools.
