Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Starting Premiere Rush, part of Premiere Rush First Look.
- [Instructor] When you first launch Premiere Rush, what you're going to be greeted with to start with once you've signed in is a tutorial such as the one you see in front of you now. And to be honest, even though you're doing this course, this tutorial is very light and very fast. It wouldn't hurt you to just go through it. It's just a few minutes long in total. But I'm going to skip it just for now and then confirm that I want to end the tutorial.
And I'm going to tap the X at the top right-hand corner of the screen because it's from here we can access the preferences for Rush. So if I go up to the top left-hand corner of the screen and click on the gear icon, I can get through to the settings and preferences for Premiere Rush. And you can see here that the preferences are very, very light indeed. If you use Dropbox and you want to use that for storage of some of your media, you can enable that there.
You can start the tour again if you ever need to see that again. And if you're on a device that has cellular, then of course, you can enable that for synchronization. You can also get the same experience on the phone of course, just in a narrower form. So again, it's the gear icon up at the top left and the preferences pretty much the same there. The only place where it's different, and I can only show this on a Mac here, is on the desktop version of Rush.
And on the Mac, there in the Premiere menu up at the top here, and I believe in Windows, it's in the Edit menu, but if I go through to the preferences here, then I've got some more options, mainly because there could be multiple inputs and outputs to use. So those are the things in the middle that I can set from there. And just above that where the imported media is going to be stored, that's the default location, just there. And then, some things at the bottom to enable pre-rendering for your sequences and also to clear the cache if you need to do that, if it starts to get clogged up.
But that's it for the preferences. So, in the next movie, what we're going to do is set up our first project so we can have a look at what the interface looks like.
In this course, learn how to get started with Premiere Rush.
