Hands on With Adobe Rush on the Handset
Lots of 'buzz' around Adobe Rush -- it's a complete workflow solution for shooting clips, editing, color correcting or filtering, titling the project, closed captions, video speed controls (slow down / accelerate a clip) and full resolution export to most popular formats and direct upload to social sites. Sounds brilliant, doesn't it?
So, I had to give it a try. Given the anticipated high level of memory and processor requirements, I put it on the Samsung Note 9. Installation was easy, connecting it to my existing (unpaid, base level) Adobe Account was simple and it comes with 3 clips to run you through a tutorial. For 76% of all your editing - cut, trim, arrange, transition, title, color filter and correct, it's got you covered, all on the handset. Brilliant editor; one of the best I've seen on a phone.
However -- and there's always a 'But' - you get a total of three (3) exports from the app until you upgrade to Adobe Clound 100GB - for $9.99 a month. Ow. So this free, powerful video editor actually costs $120 a year.
If you are already an Adobe Subscriber with a paid premium plan, you'll be able to use Adobe Rush on your PC, Mac, Tablet or Phone -- on the Phone is the most powerful as you can put a fully featured video together in a matter of minutes and have it on your social sites quickly. It's ideal for sponsored content creators, or video knurds with cash to spare.
Highly recommended - but at a cost!
As an aside, "Galaxy users who become monthly Premiere Rush subscribers will receive unlimited video exports, 100GB of cloud storage, and a 20% discount for one year3, taking the subscription price down to 7.99 USD a month.
