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?

This is %100 the goofiest s**t I have ever came across in my entire life. 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". Lo and behold I'm not the only one who can't figure this s**t out. 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.....

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.
