Polishing and Perfecting Your Video
As in any video editing app, you can trim and split the clips, apply simple transitions, add graphics with text, apply color effects and lighting adjustments, edit the sound, change the video speed, and crop and rotate it. You can do all of this in either the mobile or desktop app, though the larger workspace of the desktop is better suited to this kind of work. Apple, in its comparable iMovie app, doesn’t include all the features in its mobile version, leaving things like green screen (which Rush lacks) and picture in picture to the desktop version alone.
There are 35 color effect filters à la Instagram that you can apply to your movie, and a slider lets you increase or decrease their strength. Apple iMovie includes more-drastic and fun filter options, as well as themes and trailer templates—all of which Adobe Premiere Rush v22.214.171.1242 Pre-Cracked, doesn’t match. Rush also lets you adjust exposure, contrast, highlights, shadows, and color parameters—just like in a photo editing application. Sharpening, a Faded Film effect, and Vignetting tools round out the image processing tools.
You don’t get a wide variety of transitions—none of the fun, crazy ones you see in most consumer video editing applications. What you get is a choice of 16 dissolves, wipes, slides, and pushes. When you add one of these to a clip intersection by dragging it, it’s not very clear that you’ve added it on the timeline, but, in testing, the transitions had been applied and worked as indicated. You can change the duration of a transition, but I wish there were a way to apply them to all component clips at once.
Title options were far more generous than I expected for such a streamlined app. You access this from the top button on the right panel, called Graphics. This one button accesses Titles, Transition Graphics, and Overlays. The titling feature lets you use WYSIWYG to position and resize the text in the frame. You get a large selection of fonts and a color picker lets you customize the hue and tint to your heart’s content. Many of the templates include animation, giving your titles extra life. Working with text is one of the tasks that’s especially easier on the desktop than on a phone, but if you’re pressed, you can do it all on the smaller screen, and the clear interface makes it tolerable.
Working With Sound
The Audio panel lets you add from a decent selection of background music, sound effects, and loops. You can also add a music file of your choice for background and change clip volume (or mute it). A microphone below the main video track lets you add a voiceover. An Auto Volume checkbox didn’t do anything noticeable in my test video.
Audio is a major limitation of the app: Not only is there no auto-ducking, and you can’t drag down the audio level in the waveform on the timeline as you can in many video editing applications. Forget about effects like changing the type of acoustic for the sound—some let you re-create the effect of a stadium or cathedral. Finally, there’s no audio scrubbing, so you can’t hear sound as your moving back and forward in the timeline.
As you can see in the screenshot, the Speed tool lets you select a stretch of your video you want to speed up or slow down. A helpful option is Maintain Audio Pitch, and another is Ramp, which applies the speed changes gradually. One missing—and very much in demand—speed effect is freeze-frame, which Apple’s iMovie app does offer.
Output and Performance
Switch to the Share mode to send your video project out to the world. You can use presets for YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, or Adobe Premiere Rush v126.96.36.1992 Pre-Cracked, beloved Bēhance. Alternatively, you can set custom parameters for frame rate, resolution, and audio to output an MP4 file. You can’t, as you can with most enthusiast video software, choose a file format or codec.
The most powerful output option, though, is to open your Rush project in Adobe Premiere Pro, which includes an option for just that on its home page. Once you do that, any limitations mentioned elsewhere in this review vanish. Rush projects open in Premier Pro as if they were built in it, with all your tracks (both video and audio), edits, effects, and clips in place.
Since the app doesn’t include the standard transitions I use in my rendering test, I won’t make a direct comparison with other video editing software here, but my test project without the same transitions I normally use took 1:15 (min:sec), which is not bad at all. I will say that using the app was delay-free (except for when loading project content from the cloud), even after applying something fairly demanding like picture-in-picture or time remapping.
Are You in a Rush to Make Videos?
As its name implies, Rush can get you from shooting to sharing in two shakes of a selfie stick, and there’s certainly enough editing capabilities in the app to cut a decent-looking vlog, with titles, transitions, and audio edits. But many YouTubers will want more advanced capabilities like those possible with fuller-featured desktop video editing software. For loads more video tricks and tools, look to Editors’ Choice applications like Corel VideoStudio, CyberLink PowerDirector, and—if you’re at the professional level—Adobe Premiere Pro or Apple Final Cut Pro.
Adobe Premiere Rush v188.8.131.522 Pre-Cracked, mobile-first but desktop-capable video editing app is accessible and feature-rich enough for most vloggers, but it is missing some of the flashier tools YouTubers may want.
