Want to download Premiere Rush? In this article we'll explain how to do so, how to get it at the best price, and even how to download it for free.

And it's well worth doing so. Because while this cross-platform video editing software isn't quite as powerful or feature-rich as its professional sibling, Premiere Pro, that's part of its charm. 

Premiere Rush is a lightweight app that's easy to use and doesn't demand a big learning curve. That means you can upload, edit and share video quickly and easily, making it ideal for creating content for social media, or just giving an extra layer of polish to your holiday videos.

That said, this app isn't just for amateurs. Professionals, too, find the mobile Premiere Rush apps offer a handy way to make tweaks to their videos while on the move. Particularly as you can swap your footage back and forth between Premiere Rush and the more advanced Premiere Pro. 

Please note, though, that Premiere Rush is currently not available in China.

What is Premiere Rush?

Adobe Premiere Rush is a cross-device app for creating and sharing online videos. It allows you to edit footage on a timeline using drag and drop.  You can crop, resize and rotate your clips; fix colors, adjust audio, add titles and captions; record voiceovers and use other audio tools like sound balancing, noise reduction, and auto-ducking. 

You can use the app on your phone, tablet, or desktop, and your edits are automatically synced to the cloud. Once you're done editing your video, you can share it to all the usual social channels, right from the app.

Available on macOS, Windows, iOS, and Android, Premiere Rush comes with free customizable motion graphics templates, and integrates nicely with Adobe Stock if you want to find extra templates. If you're totally new to video editing, you can access a guided interactive tutorial the minute you open the app; right from the Welcome screen.

Can I download Premiere Rush for free?

Yes, you can download Premiere Rush for free under the Starter Plan, and use it for as long as you wish. This gives you unlimited exports on Premiere Rush mobile, and three free video exports on Premiere Rush desktop. 

(What do we mean by exports? Basically, 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.)

You can download the desktop version of Premiere Rush for free from this page. Just click on the blue button that reads 'Start for Free' and follow the steps. If you don't already have an Adobe ID, don't worry: it's free to create one with your email address, or through your Google, Facebook, or Apple account.
