How to Edit Video on Adobe Premiere Clip: Part 1

Create a New Project

First, create a new project by tapping on the + button found in the bottom right on Android and the top right on the iOS. The app has a slightly different layout depending on which device you’re using, but the features are all the same.

Now choose where your Premiere Clip content is stored. You can use any videos or photos on your device, as well as on the main cloud services including Dropbox, Google Photos or Apple Photos. Alternatively, select the camera option and shoot something new. Tap to add all the clips you want to use and then tap Done.

Choose a Project Type

Next, you will see the Choose Project Type screen one of the best things about Adobe Premiere Clip is that it can automatically generate movies for you. it edits your clips together in sync with a soundtrack that it also adds. To do this, choose automatic. For more control over your project choose freeform.

Automatic videos only take a few seconds to create. You can tweak them a little by adding a different soundtrack and changing the order in which the clips are used. You can also convert an Automatic video to Freeform at any time. Hit the more customisation button at the top if you want to do that.

Rearrange your Premiere Clip Clips

After you choose Freeform you’ll see the main editing screen. This has a preview window at the top, a trim bar in the centre, and your clips displayed in sequence at the bottom. All the clips you choose are added to your video in the order you selected them. The first thing you need to do is rearrange any that are out of sequence. To do this, hold your finger on one of the thumbnails and drag it into the preferred position.

Trim your Clips

Next, you need to trim your clips. This enables you to reduce a longer video down to just the few seconds that you want to use. Tap the clip to select it. In the trim bar in the centre you will see purple handles at each end. The left handle marks the in point, where the video will start. The right handle marks the out point, where the video will end. There is also a white vertical bar that lets you “scrub” through the clip to preview its content rapidly.

Drag the white bar until you reach the point where you want the video clip to start. Now drag the left most handle to that same point. Next, drag the white bar to the point where you want the video to end, then move the right handle to align with it.

Split your Clips

Sometimes you might want to use the whole clip, but not all at the same time. You might want to add a cutaway to another shot, for example. Or maybe you need to use parts from the start to end of a clip, but not from the middle. You can do this by splitting the clip.

Tap the clip to select it, then tap the settings sliders icon just above the preview window. This opens up a clip editing screen. Drag the scrubber bar to the point where you want to make your cut, then tap Split at Playhead. You will return to the main editing screen, where the clip is ow split into two parts. Hold and drag them into place. You can split a clip as many times as you want.
