As smartphone cameras become more powerful, more and more folks are relying on them for all of their photo and video needs. And while there’s no shortage of video editing apps on the market, Adobe today threw its hat into the Android video editing ring with Premiere Clip.
Adobe Premiere Clip is a video editing app for your Android phone or tablet. You can use it to drag and drop your clips around a timeline, trim out parts that you don’t want included, and add visual flourishes like transitions and slow motion effects. You can also apply custom color and color Looks from Adobe Capture CC, and the app also lets you export your clips in the full Adobe Premiere Pro CC app on your desktop to continue editing.
If you’re not into getting your hands dirty with Premiere Clip’s editing tools, you can also let the app make a video for you using your images and the soundtrack and pace that you choose.
Adobe Premiere Clip launched on iOS around one year ago, and while it’s a bummer that it took this long to finally arrive on Android, the phrase “better late than never” applies here. The launch of Premiere Clip on Android is notable because Adobe is a big name when it comes to creative software, and the ability to export clips from the app to Premiere on the desktop is a pretty nice inclusion if you’re already in the Adobe ecosystem.
