Adobe Premiere Rush, Adobe’s cross-platform video editor for smartphones, tablets, and PCs, arrived on select Android devices in May following a broad launch last year on PC, Mac, and iOS. Now, Adobe is beefing up Rush with a new feature that enables users to manipulate the speed of videos and add ramps while maintaining pitch.
The speed adjustment controls in Rush version 1.2 live in the speed panel (under the subheader Range Speed) and display speed as a percentage, where 100% is real time and values below or above the baseline are in slow and fast motion, respectively. You’re able to enter a specific value or use a slider, and optionally enable the Maintain Pitch option to preserve the original pitch of audio at any speed. (Normally, speeding up footage raises the audio’s pitch, while slowing it down lowers it.)
The feature niftily lets you adjust speed within portions of clips as opposed to whole scenes. Creating these portions is as easy as dragging the blue handles on the target clip in the timeline or in the speed panel; as the handles are dragged, Rush displays particular frames where the changes take full effect.
As for ramping, which refers to the progressive speeding up or slowing down in or out of a speed range, they’re set to 0.5 seconds by default, but can be adjusted to any value. As Adobe notes, they help smooth out speed changes that might otherwise seem jarring.
Lastly, the updated Rush lets you manually set a clip’s duration, after which it automatically adjusts the clip’s speed to the appropriate value.
Among Adobe Rush’s other core features are integrated color, audio, and motion graphics tools and one-click publishing to social media sites like Facebook and YouTube, with support for native YouTube features like video scheduling and thumbnail selection. Also on tap is auto-ducking, which leverages the power of Adobe Sensei — Adobe’s machine learning framework — to automatically generate clip volume keyframes from music to reduce the volume when dialogue, sound effects, and other audio elements are present…Read more
Adobe’s Premiere Rush latest update brings its highest requested feature—speed adjustments—to its mobile video editor.
When Adobe’s cross-platform editing app Premiere Rush launched last year, I was excited for the tools it provided and also for the opportunities it gave beginner content creators since its so simple and easy to use from a mobile device. However, the first iteration did lack a few features.
Recently, Premiere Rush got a new update. One of the most requested feature—speed adjustments—was added to Premiere Rush version 1.2.
Speed up and slow down
With Premiere Rush version 1.2 users can now adjust the playback speed of their video footage to truly immerse viewers into a scene. You can use speed to show extended time periods in a few moments or conversely, slow footage down to draw your viewers in for peak interest (Figure A). Premiere Rush version 1.2 makes this easy to achieve for any video creator.
The interface of Premiere Rush version 1.2 is touch friendly on the desktop version, and this translates well with mobile devices. The speed option is clearly visible on the menu and uses toggles, sliders, and handles to help you dial in your speed settings…Read more
Adobe has added professional-style speed controls to its mobile Premiere Rush CC video editing app, making it much more useful for YouTubers and other creators on the go. You can do simple speed changes much like in the main Premiere Pro CC app by either stretching/shrinking clips or entering a specific speed percentage. You can also create speed ranges within a section of your clip, starting it in fast motion and finishing in super slow-mo, for instance.
If you need even more granular control, Adobe said that Premiere Rush CC is the first mobile video editing app with speed ramping, though Muvee might beg to differ. In any case, that feature (shown above) will let you progressively change the speed of a clip from fast to slow or vice-versa, Matrix style, without a lot of hassle….Read more
Adobe added a new Speed panel to Premiere Rush, giving users the ability to slow down or speed up footage and adjust speed ramps with the option of maintaining audio pitch.
Speed can be controlled by tapping a button at the bottom of the screen to open the Speed panel. Once opened, the panel displays a “Range Speed” percentage that can be adjusted on a slider to speed up or slow down a given section of footage. (A speed percentage can also be typed in as a specific value.)
The range that the new speed applies to can be adjusted by dragging handles on a clip in the timeline or in the speed panel with “Range” selected.
Speed ramps — which progressively speed up or slow down in or out of the selected range, easing the transition from normal to off-speed footage — can be turned on and off. While speed ramps default to a half-second, they can be adjusted to any length.
Rush also allows users to simply set a desired duration for a given clip and let the program adjust the clip’s speed to fit in the specified time. Adobe says this comes in handy for creating time-lapses…Read more
Adobe’s prosumer video editor, Premiere Rush, gets an upgrade today that includes its most-requested feature. Version 1.2 of the editor—which runs on iOS and Android devices, as well as desktops—includes the ability to speed up or slow down clips or parts of clips. Using the feature, editors will see a clip’s speed marked as a percentage where 100% is real-time. Dropping that percent down slows the clip and raising it speeds the clip up. To make speed effects less jarring, editors can ramp into the new speed and then ramp out of it. Adobe notes Rush is the first mobile video editing app that includes ramping on speed changes.
One handy feature in the speed controls is the ability to set the duration of the altered clip, then let the program calculate the new speed value. This makes it easy to create time lapse videos from longer clips. The video at the bottom of this page shows how the feature can be used to create a time lapse.
Rush will maintain the audio pitch of a time-adjusted clip by default, although that can be turned off. Speed changes made in Premiere Rush will carry over if the project is opened in Premiere Pro…Read more
