Adobe Premiere Rush CC | Walk-Through and Thoughts

Published

on

For the most part, Adobe is the leader when it comes to photo and video editing on a PC or laptop, however when it comes to mobile editing they have been dragging their heels allowing app’s like Affinity Photo and LumaFushion to dominate mobile devices such as iPhones and iPads. With today’s powerful tablets such as the iPad Pro, it is now possible to meet all your editing needs on these mobile devices. Last year I made the switch from editing all my YouTube, Drone and GoPro videos from a laptop to an iPad Pro and I haven’t looked back. More and more people are making the switch and its about time that Adobe got into the mobile game.

A few months back Adobe announced a public beta of a new mobile editing app called Project Rush and was geared to YouTubers and mobile editors. I joined the beta program right away so I could get my hands on the new mobile editing app early and was quite impressed even early on in the beta testing. A few days ago Adobe finally launched this new mobile editing app with a new name called Adobe Premiere Rush CC, the CC refers to it being part of the creative cloud suite. Not only is this new mobile editing app compatible with iPhones and iPads, they even have a desktop version. This allows you to start editing on one device and finish on another.

Some notable features of Adobe Premiere CC is its capability of editing 4 tracks of video and 3 tracks of audio. This can be switched between a simple timeline and a multitrack editor. There are some really good tools for editing audio, but what I really like the most is its powerful titling tools. Adobe has included some really professional premade animated titles that look really good. All titles can be fully customized to suit any taste. Even though its early on I think that Adobe is headed in the right direction when it comes to usability and features. There is definitely some room for improvements when it comes to features as there is a huge gap between Adobe Premiere Pro and Rush. I am sure we will see that gap close as new features and updates are added over time. I do have to say I am really impressed with the interface of Rush, Adobe has done a great job at organizing the layout and it will seem very familiar for those who are accustom to Adobe products.

Now there are two big downfalls to Adobe Rush that will prevent me from even considering using it on a regular basis. The first is a lack of 4K exports. You can edit you 4K footage with no issues, but when it comes time to save the final video you can only export at a max resolution of 1080. This is ok for social media editing but there are those times you just want 4K. I hope to see this added in a future update. The second deal breaker for me is the fact that they are using a subscription model…I very much dislike renting software. Lumafusion has a one time fee of 20 dollars and you own it. With Adobe Premiere Rush you have to pay 10 bucks a month forever. Now it’s not all bad if you already have a Premiere Pro monthly plan, Rush is included in it and some other plans they have. However in the meantime, you can still download it to evaluate it for yourself, you are just limited to how many exports you can do until you subscribe to the monthly plan.

Air Magic – Automatic Drone Photo Editing App From Skylum

Published

on

Earlier in the week Skylum, the makers of Aurora HDR and Luminar launched a new software app called AirMagic. This new software is engineered specifically for editing photos taken on drones and it does it automatically. Let’s face it not all of us are editing guru’s, purchasing, learning, and mastering editing software like Photoshop or Lightroom can be time-consuming and expensive. There is a huge learning curve to get good results out of high-end photo editing apps. Not to mention some folks just don’t have time to spend hours upon hours editing shots they have captured with their drone.

This is were software like AirMagic comes in, this intelligent software can analyze your drone photo and make it look incredible with just a few clicks, the best part is there is no learning curve, AirMagic does everything for you. I was able to get my hands on a pre-release version and have been playing around with it for several weeks and I must say I am very impressed. This software can detect what drone the photo was captured with to make any adjustments needed for every specific drone. If you want to change the look of the finished photo they have also included some different styles that can be applied. If you have many files you want to edit, no problem, AirMagic can open up multiple files at a time for quick and easy batch editing.

One thing however that I wish they did include is a way to manually change the look, the software is geared for automatic editing, but it would be nice to be able to adjust some aspects of the editing for those who like to tinker. They do however include a strength slider, so if you find you want to tone things down a bit you are able.

All in all, this is a fantastic drone photo editing app for beginners and for those who don’t have a lot of time. If you just want to shoot photos with your drone and then be able to share them on social media without a lot of fussing around, AirMagic is definitely for you. I highly reconded the AirMagic app to all drone photographers, both beginners and seasoned.

Watch my demonstration of AirMagic working its magic on my demo video below.
