Lightroom CC As Source
I see Creative Cloud as a source for content to start a project. But I would like to use videos I have in my Lightroom CC library.
Creative Cloud is smart enough to know I have a Lightroom library as part of my cloud storage. But I don’t see my pictures and videos from the library.
I should also be able to save the project to Lightroom CC library.
It’s great to see people using other Creative Cloud apps :)
Please continue to add to this thread if you have additional thoughts on how you would like your Lightroom content (assets, albums) to show up in Rush.

Is anything going to be done????
Johan Grøtheim Eilertsen commented
Yes, LR and Rush should be seen as companion apps, offered together as a cloud-based photo and video suite! This is precisely what could bring more subscribers to Adobe. I can’t believe this is not being prioritised!
Karolina Skalska commented
I would like the two (rush and lightroom mobile) work seamlessly. With similar interface (for example for folder directory, color grading, saving the files)
Chris Phillips commented
I was thinking about using Rush but then discovered it cant access my Lightroom content. I will need to download any content I want to use! Come on guys this is meant to be a Creative Cloud.
Mike Wrob commented
I just started doing more with videos and gave Premiere Rush a try. I found it fairly limited in features but very easy to use. However, not being able to access my Lightroom CC files was a deal killer for me so I cancelled my subscription to Rush.
Holger Scheloske commented
Lightroom can manage videos. But Adobe Rush can't import videos from Lightroom. Why not, it's 2021, so that should be supported if needed.
Rob Hendricks commented
It's ******* stupid I can't simply edit video inside of lightroom.
Erica DalBello commented
I work a lot with Lightroom (both mobile and Classic) and it would be awesome if I could open one video or more videos directly from LR to Rush, like we do from LR to PS.

Please add Lightroom CC as source!!
It is 2 years from latest Adobe feedback to this topic, yet it is still absolutely impossible without a PC. You have a tablet with Lightroom and Rush installed, but you have no working way how to get videos from Lightroom to Rush since Lightroom does not allow you even to download them from the cloud to the device.
It looks like Rush is being made by totally different company with only Adobe branding, no collaboration with other Adobe products at all.

The Animoto web tool (version 2) was able to pull from Adobe CC (cloud) as a source. So it is possible for third party tools. Unfortunately it is not possible from the version 3 of Animoto. I think within Adobe products it is a no-brainer. I would like to bring photos into Rush from LR and make a snappy video from the photos. Hopefully Adobe makes progress on this.

How are we doing with this? It's kind of essential wouldn't you say @Adobe?
Lee Nackman commented
I bet that at the same time all of us are asking for Lightroom CC as a source, the Lightroom CC team is off building their own video editing right in Lightroom so that it competes better with Apple Photos. Tell me it’s not so. Otherwise, I’m not hopeful of getting this capability (it has been two years!) and the whole notion of “Creative Cloud” is pretty much a marketing slogan, not something real.
Dennis Ehle commented
This is a glaring gap that flies in the face of the very CC value proposition! Can someone explain why our Lightroom assets can not be imported into a Rush project but Dropbox assets can???
Is this feature on the roadmap, can we expect it...ever? Or will it simply continue to be one of the biggest Adobe head-scratchers and an ENORMOUS dissatisfaction for those of us who have committed to LightRoom and CC as a primary media storage solution based on the mistaken assumption that Adobe was building a professional grade and fully integrated platform.
Christian Roth commented
Same request here.
It’s more than Strange to pay significant € for cloud storage in Lightroom - to then not be able to access the assets in another app aka RUSH.
Johan Grøtheim Eilertsen commented
Still no updates Adobe? While waiting for this feature I’ve discovered another missing piece of this Adobe cloud ecosystem (for mobile video). If you backup iPhone Live Photos with Lightroom mobile, only the still image is stored. The short video clip accompanying every image is lost. See this thread and please vote here as well if you also see this as a problem:
I believe Lightroom mobile should offer a full backup of mobile photos and videos, making all files available for both Rush and Lightroom. With all it’s bells and whistles, Adobe cloud is still no match for iCloud on basic functionality 😕
Marc Steenbeke commented
It beats me how this can not be a standard feature that should have been the number one strategy when initially developing Premiere Rush.
Kristofer King commented
This is just stupid. How can you neglect to add such a basic and vital feature like this?? And then to not even give a response for two years is just asinine. This is a desperately important feature that needs to be at the top of the list for future development updates. Like why the **** are you currently working on the ability to import from the iOS files app when you haven’t even added integration for your own cloud storage?? Not only that but, this even has more votes than the iOS files integration!
Having two separate Creative Cloud folders defeats the entire purpose of it. I might as well just go sign up for Dropbox and get rid of my CC storage. You guys’ development team needs to give us some kind of update about this topic, get your **** together, and actually implement this feature.
David Terrie commented
Can we get a Yes or No and a timeline for being able to use Lightroom CC cloud files as a source?
This would be a key product advantage for Rush. Having to export all my photos defeats the purpose of using Lightroom CC in the first place. It also means duplicate storage. Please don't force me to look elsewhere for a video editing solution.
Mike Hazlip commented
I've been a graphic designer and photographer since the early 2000s, but I'm still relatively new to video. I just don't get that many requests for it. But Rush has a much easier learning curve than Premiere, so I use it for short promos. I need to be able to use my CC libraries to drag and drop a logo from Illustrator into the title, add any number of .psd files, and use colors and fonts to maintain the client's branding style. I would love to see any asset in the CC Library, .ai, .eps, .psd, .jpg, even .pdf files be drag-and-dropable into Rush.
I can imagine that's a mountain of coding to make all that work without bugs, so another solution might be the ability to "Export As Rush Title..." from Ai or Ps. That way I could use all my CC assets in Illustrator to make the necessary graphics for titles and so forth, save or export it in a format Rush likes, and import the media into Rush. Drag and drop from the CC library is still a more elegant and intuitive solution, but this would work for me.
