I would like to make 4 different films with the same beginning and ending, but i cannot find how to copy a project.
Is this possible, and if yes, how?
Thanks for trying out Premiere Rush and highlighting your doubt.
Copying(duplicating) a project is not possible in Premiere Rush currently. However, the same purpose can be achieved by duplicating a sequence in project panel. Just open the project panel, click on ellipsis(...) on any sequence thumbnail and hit Duplicate to copy that sequence in the project panel.
You can also rename the (duplicated )sequences as you like and keep them intact while you continue editing on the original sequence.
I Hope this will help.
You can also submit feature requests for anything you would like to see in Rush here: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/916423-premiere-rush
Keep highlighting your doubts. !
We are continuously working to provide the best experience for our users.
Glad to help,
This is insane usability and violates everything known and learned about read/write/copy/delete file operations. This is ad-hoc engineering at its worst.
Please fix this absolutely insipid nonsense. It should even be possible to inadvertently copy projects by appending an autoincremented numeral to the filename.
But please, really, get it to together and don't do this nonstandard BS.
I couldn't agree more. The arrogance on the part of the "engineers" that everyone will just get it eventually is madding. What is wrong with you Adobe. "Save as" is a part of every program you and every other software company makes. Why did you think you were being so cool leaving it out?
does anyone else like imovie more? I've made 1 project with Rush and feel like imovie has more functions and is much more user-friendly
I too need to use the duplication for entire projects on a very regular basis. We need videos with different subtitles. Can you please update with this option?
I figured out a workaround if you are interested. Install Adobe Rush on another device (like an iPhone) and login with the same credentials as the primary device. Open your project on each device and make a small change on one device, like adding a title at the end. Close both verions of the project. When you open the project again you'll get a warning dialog that reads something like "Project Conflict. The version on the server will overwrite the version on your device. Do you want to save a copy of it first?". Go ahead and hit "Save copy" and you'll have two versions of the same project--one with the minor change you made that can easily be edited out. Hope this helps, it worked for me when I need to create a French version of an English video.
You saved me from lots of work...your workaround was genius and worked for me!! Thanks a bunch.
I just tried this and no error comes up, but my small change is on both copies...
Yes, it appears Adobe has "fixed" it. The workaround no longer works. I have moved to a different video editing solution.
Update: The hack still works but you have to jiggle it a bit sometimes. I just made four copies of the same short video without any issue. Playing with the sync settings is key as you have to fool the app into thinking there's a conflict.
I, too, have cancelled my account.
The inability to do a process associated with a bedrock file-write function (copy, edit, delete) is, well, too dumb to believe. It's obvious that today's engineers and product managers at Adobe think they can do better than the rational user functions that have been in play 30+ years in the consumer market.
Looking for a new solution.
It did the same thing for me at first, but I got it to work by making a small change on both desktop and mobile. (A different change on each.) This workaround is a LIFESAVER. Thank God for your comment @Pushstick! I don't know what I would have done without this after sinking so much time into my video! So relieved.
Glad I could help!
It is insane that we have to do this, nut you are !$%@ing genius! love the fix and thanks!
Yes! This totally worked! I opened the project on my iphone and returned to my Adobe Rush Project on my PC. I didn't see the pop-up to save a copy until I went back to the home screen in Rush and tried to reopen the same project. I was able to create a copy and rename it. Thank you so much. I plan to create school videos with a common title/music theme and this helps tremendously.
😉 Same here Dawg. Saved me a ton of needless work....what you said worked. Thank you, Steven Palange.
Hi! Hopefully this helps others:
On the Home page, under the video you want to copy, press on the 3 dots ... (Project Options) then click Duplicate. This is how we proceed to copy a project and change subtitles from French to English.
Hope this helps!
Copying projects is a new feature in Rush. In previous versions, it was not possible and this thread dealt with a workaround fix that worked, by tricking the app into creating a duplicate versions.
Now you know this since November 2018 (minimum), 1,5 years, and there is still no possibility to copy a project?! Sorry, but that's ridiculous!
It's nuts that this functionality is missing. Duplicating a sequence is no where close to duplicating a project. I used Rush to create a 3-minute video with caption overlays and now I have to create a French version. I'm screwed.
I have to do the exact same thing so many times and its always a headache.
I hope this is fixed soon!
this is not the correct answer. please remove the correct answer badge.
Thank you for the video Caroline. A video that went too fast, didn't explain what to do with these new clips in the timeline to create a new project. And you or no one from Adobe has engaged in answering the real question. Why is there no save as? Why can we not duplicate files where you store these on the cloud?
Please add the functionality to copy a PROJECT, not a sequence. It's mind-blowing that the only way to do this is to create conflicting copies. This "save-as" funtionality is one of the most basic things in any app, I agree with other commentors that Adobe not building in this functionality is mind-bendingly strange and frustrating. Thanks to Pushstick for the creative workaround!
