Premiere Rush is the mobile and desktop video editing app for creativity on the go. It’s Adobe’s new all-in-one tool to quickly create HD and 4K videos across devices, and share on social media and beyond. It’s a terrific new addition to Creative Cloud as the intuitive, easy-to-use younger sibling of Premiere Pro – but the best part is, it’s a completely free download with no cost to get started!
Wait, what? Premiere Rush is free?
The Starter Plan for Premiere Rush is free and available for everyone worldwide. This includes the Rush desktop and mobile apps – you can use either or both. The free version gives you access to all Rush features and content on desktop, as well as the highly-rated Rush mobile apps with most features and content enabled.
This free plan is available to anyone with a free Creative Cloud membership and includes Premiere Rush, 2 GB of cloud storage, unlimited free video exports on mobile, and up to three exported projects on desktop. Get the Starter Plan for Premiere Rush here at no charge:
What can Premiere Rush do?
Premiere Rush is the first all-in-one, cross-device app for creating and sharing online videos – fast. You can edit, adjust color, fix audio, add titles, and more with simple-to-use tools, customizable motion graphics templates, and integration with Adobe Stock – including over 10,000 free Stock videos. Save or share your final creations to your favorite social channels right from the app.
So wherever you are, on your phone, tablet, or computer, you can shoot, edit, and share high-quality videos.
So how is the free Rush different from the paid plans? Are there limitations?
The free Starter plan allows you to download and use Premiere Rush on desktop, Apple iOS, and Android devices. With this plan, you can shoot, edit, and share unlimited videos on mobile, and/or export three videos on desktop.
Normally, Rush on mobile has the same features and capabilities as Rush on the desktop, plus the ability to capture videos and photos right from within the Rush mobile app. The free Starter plan has slightly-reduced features on mobile, as the Advanced Audio tools, Auto Reframe, exporting in 4K, Advanced sharing, and extra content are only available on mobile with premium or paid plans.
Lastly, project syncing between mobile and desktop is not available with the free Starter Plan, so your Rush projects will remain where you start them.

What is an export? How many do I get for free?
An export is the way a Rush project becomes a video that can be saved or shared. Any time that you want to save a video you’ve created in Rush on your computer or mobile device, or share it to social media, you must export it first. If you are on the Starter plan, you can export unlimited projects on Premiere Rush mobile and up to three projects on Premiere Rush desktop. (To export more than three projects total on desktop, you can upgrade to a paid plan.)
Is the free Premiere Rush time-limited? Is it a trial?
No, once you download and install Premiere Rush on your computer or device(s), there is no expiration date or time limitation. Adobe intends to continue offering this free plan going forward.
How do I get the free Premiere Rush plan?
All you need is a standard Adobe ID, which is just a few fields to fill out and free to sign up. Alternatively, you can sign in using your Google, Facebook, or Apple credentials. Then download Premiere Rush on desktop and/or mobile at no cost, and get going right away.
For the desktop version, you’ll need a computer that meets Adobe’s minimum system requirements for Rush… This means macOS 10.13 (“High Sierra”) or later, or Windows 10 64-bit version 1709 or later (note Windows 7 is not supported). Rush is currently available in English, French, German, Japanese, Korean, and at least ten other languages.
Does anything else come with the free Premiere Rush tier?
Yes, you also get 2GB of free cloud storage. In addition, the Rush Starter tier is part of the free level of Creative Cloud membership, which also includes free Adobe Fonts (over 1,000 to choose from), Adobe Bridge at no cost, over 3,000 free design assets in Creative Cloud Libraries, the free version of Adobe XD, access to over 500,000 free Stock photos, Adobe Spark, and much more.
