Do ramping, audio pitch changes and more.

Adobe has added professional-style speed controls to its mobile Premiere Rush CC video editing app, making it much more useful for YouTubers and other creators on the go. You can do simple speed changes much like in the main Premiere Pro CC app by either stretching/shrinking clips or entering a specific speed percentage. You can also create speed ranges within a section of your clip, starting it in fast motion and finishing in super slow-mo, for instance.

If you need even more granular control, Adobe said that Premiere Rush CC is the first mobile video editing app with speed ramping, though Muvee might beg to differ. In any case, that feature (shown above) will let you progressively change the speed of a clip from fast to slow or vice-versa, Matrix style, without a lot of hassle.

Other features include duration adjustments and pitch control. The latter lets you keep the original pitch of a speaker when you slow them up or down, so they don't sound either like Mickey Mouse or James Earl Jones on Quaaludes.

Not now

Rush first launched on iPhone, but is now available on Android, iOS and desktop. However, it seems to be more stable on iOS, judging by Play Store comments, so hopefully Adobe has improved that. It doesn't come cheap, either -- while you can test Rush CC for free, you can only export three projects. After that, you'll need to get an Adobe Creative Cloud plan starting at $10 per month.
