Premiere rush can't open mac photos library

I'm trying to edit a video in my Mac Photos library using Premiere Rush. I can see the library from the "select media" screen, but the folder won't open and show my videos. I have verified that Rush has access to Photos in System Prefs - Privacy.

 

Anyone know how to fix this?Screen Shot 2019-12-28 at 2.14.16 PM.png

You'll have to drag your photos and videos out of the photos.app and into another folder and then import into Rush from that folder.

Holy cow - Rush on Mac can't import videos directly from the photos library? Plus, there's no option under the File menu to import media using the standard MacOS interface for grabbing files from the file structure? That seems crazy for a Mac video editor.

 

Guess I'll have to use iMovie.

The easist and fastest way to work around this astonishing issue is to open the project on your iphone or ipad. Import the files, then name and save it to CC. All will be present when project is opened on Mac. One hopes Adobe will update the problem.

It's not Adobe, it's Apple. They sequester all images in Photos. You can work with them on your phone, but not on the Mac. Same goes for photos and LR or PS. We all have these temp folders on our desktops that we use to jump the files over. Idiotic. Please don't use iMovie.

It's seems to be a questionable statement because other 3rd party apps have access for photos/video library. Like NV video editor - I just install it from App Store and it has an access for my videos. What do I miss?

I have been working on trying to export from 'Photos.app' for around 4 days and I finally thought to myself, "Ty, You're not stupid, you're missing something". I'm legitimately baffled at the fact a function this simple is not incorporated, whether it be Apple's or Adobe's fault, get a grip and fix this. I have many 10's of GB's worth of videos I need edited and I am now going to have to transfer them to the desktop and then export to CC to be able to do anyhting with them.WHAT A HEADACHE. 

Not only this, all of my videos are on iCloud and I have to download, then Transfer, Then EXPORT. I am so very upset. One video is going to take about an hour to move because of the size of the files. UGHHH.....

 

Mod note: Edited. Please do not use profanity.

I love Apple - but the way Apple makes it so difficult to access the Photo Library is not a good customer experience.

Agreed. I love Apple also, as with Adobe, it has so much to offer creators but when there is a snag like this, it can really hinder creative energy.

I delete Premiere rush for this reason. Too much media to transfer, and not motivate to use disk space for that, it's crazy!

Exactly. I went ahead and EXPORTED my video from Photos to my MOVIES folder just this one time, then I will DELETE the Rush app. In this day and age of technology, it's unbelievable that this should be so hard.

I'm having the same problem that was first mentioned in 2019. But now it's 2023.

2 Questions:

1 - Is there still no way to directly access my Photo Library on my Mac from the Adobe Rush app?

2 - Is the best workaround to use an iPad to start the project and access the videos I want from my Photo library and sync the project to Adobe Creative Cloud and then open the project on my Mac in Adobe Rush?

Thanks.

The desktop workaround seems to be to open the Photo App and right click the video you want and choose "Edit With..." about midway down. Select Adobe Premiere Rush. The process will then take up to 20 seconds - but, a donut-shaped two-tone grey circle will appear next to the thumbnail magnifier slider tool in top left of the main Photo App screen to let the user know something is happening. When this circle is completely filled with white, the Adobe Premiere Rush app will automatically be moved to the top on the desktop and an alert window will appear with the status of the loading clip. Not sure if Premiere Rush needs to be opened first, but this definitely works when it's open

I'm just starting to get into Rush (MBP) and create projects, and the first thing I noticed is that Rush will not show Photos folder in order to upload images. I have checked the filter on the bottom of the screen and "All Media Types" is selected. And the Pictures tab I have circled below, does nothing/doesn't open. I am missing how to import images?
