Meet Adobe Premiere Clip



Adobe announced a bunch of new mobile apps at the Adobe MAX 2014 keynote. And one of the shiny new stars that made its debut is:

 Adobe Premiere Clip – a  mobile app for video editing on the go!



Premiere Clip turns your mobile video shots into amazing movies right on your iPhone or iPad. You can capture the essence of a moment and use Premiere Clip to transform your clips into a high-quality movie replete with cinema-quality color treatment and awesome audio — all in just a few taps!

And what’s even better is that the magic of Creative Cloud lets Premiere Clip automatically sync media on all of your devices.  If you’d like to do more advanced editing, you just have to export the movie to your Adobe Creative Cloud account and  work on it later in Premiere Pro CC.

Sounds magical, right? Watch Meagan Keane demo Premiere Clip, and you’ll agree with me.

Downloading Premiere Clip is quick and easy. Just head to the Apps store to download Premiere Clip. But, before you get started, I’d encourage you to check out these handy resources:

I had a lot of fun creating my first Premiere Clip video for “National Cat Day”.








I’m sure you too will enjoy Premiere Clip! Do remember to share your videos on Twitter by including #MadeWithClip.

Animated lower-thirds provide a nice touch of professional style and appeal to your videos.

The tighter integration of After Effects and Premiere Pro in the 2014 release of Creative Cloud makes editing text in After Effects templates easier than ever before.

The “Live Text Templates” feature lets you edit, duplicate, or modify an After Effects template right inside Premiere Pro’s timeline. The neat thing about this feature is that you can modify the text without altering the imagery or graphics surrounding the text.
