Adobe unveiled several new mobile apps at its annual Adobe Max conference earlier this month. The new lineup of mobile apps includes Adobe Premiere Clip, which is a video editing tool for the iPad and iPhone that’s derived from Adobe Premiere Pro, their professional-grade video editing tool. Adobe Premiere Clip is available at no cost, while Premiere Pro is part of the Creative Cloud set of tools that is available with a subscription from Adobe.

Premiere Clip represents Adobe’s first significant attempt at editing video clips using a mobile device. It’s primarily intended to edit video that was shot with an iPad or iPhone. These functions are similar to Apple’s iMovie app, although Premiere Clip also has features that appeal primarily to professional artists. For example, Premiere Clip is fully integrated with Premiere Pro CC, allowing users to start editing on a mobile device, then complete the editing project using the comprehensive editing tools available in Premiere Pro. An emerging trend of shooting professional video with mobile devices will be given a boost by the ability to quickly edit video using this new mobile app, then create more complete edits using the full desktop version of the app before rendering and distributing a final video.

American Graphics Institute teaches Premiere Pro training courses, and is able to incorporate Premiere Clip into training programs. Regularly scheduled public courses along with customized and private classes for Premiere Pro and other related Adobe tools are available.
