You can only use one track per movie, and it is always synced to the start of the video. There is no way to change this. It is possible to make the music start at a later point in the song. Drag the waveform until you reach your chosen point, and hit the play button for a preview.
Of the other audio options, Auto Mix will lower the music volume when there is a native sound from the video clip. This should be on by default. Sync to music snaps cuts to the beat of your chosen soundtrack when you trim a clip. This is worth experimenting with. Sometimes it works well; sometimes less so. Finally, set the volume level for your soundtrack, and whether you want to fade it in at the start and out at the end.
Fine Tune your Edit
By this stage your movie should be looking absolutely fantastic. There are a few extra tools that can add some more polish to your work though.
And that starts with tweaking the colour and sound. First, select a clip and tap the aperture icon. Here you will find sliders to adjust Exposure, Highlights and Shadows. You must set these manually for each clip; you cannot do it globally.
Tap the speaker icon to access the volume settings for the clip. The smart volume helps to correct for big contrasts in the volume levels. You can also adjust the overall volume, or turn the audio off entirely by deactivating the play audio option. Again, you have to set the audio settings for each clip separately.
Also, you can change the look of your entire movie as well, on the main editing screen tap the Looks icon at the top. Looks are a series of filters you can apply to your video to change the colour, contrast, and overall tone. There are 30 to choose from, some less subtle than others. Just tap on the thumbnails to see the effect in action. You can change them again later. Like Instagram filters, the looks can be overdone. But they are a very quick way to give all your clips a uniform colour and style, something you don’t get to control otherwise.
Add a Title to Your Premiere Clip
Finally, add a title to your Premiere Clip film. Tap the + icon on the main editing screen and select Text Title. Type your text into the box, then set a colour for both the text and the background. Return to the main screen and drag the title card to the right position if you need to. Set “In” an “Out” points for the title to adjust how long it will stay on screen.
You can add as many title cards as you need. You can place them in between clips to function as chapter headers, or at the end.
Save and Share your Movie
And you’re done. Tap the full screen icon in the top right to get a proper preview of your final video. If you want to change something you can just go back and do it. Every single edit you have made can be tweaked or undone. Once you are happy, its time to save and share your work.
Adobe Premiere Clip saves your projects automatically as you work, so there is no need to save them as you go. But you do need to export the final product for sharing or viewing in other apps. Tap the share button to bring up your options:
- Save to Gallery: This exports and saves a local copy of your video to your device. You can watch it in other apps.
- Save to Creative Cloud: Uploads your video to your Adobe Creative Cloud space.
- Publish and Share: This publishes your completed movie on the Community Videos page within Premiere Clip. You can choose whether to make it public or private.
- Send to Premiere Pro CC: This allows you to open your video project in Premiere Pro on your desktop for more in-depth editing. You need to be logged in to the same Adobe account in both locations.
- Share on YouTube: Creates your video and uploads it to your YouTube account.
- Share to Twitter: Creates your video and posts it on your Twitter.
