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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jared Platt commented
It is amazing that the CC Cloud files are a source and Lightroom is not. The RUSH team is the same group that did the amazing product CLIP and that pulled from Lightroom. That is the way Iwould expect RUSH to get the images. All the SPARK apps get their images from Lightroom as well. If you could also share them directly from APP to APP rather than from the cloud that would be even better. Just through the SHARE button in LIGHTROOM. But that would require RUSH to ask what project to add them to on the way in when it cam from the share button in Lightroom. But this should not be a feature that is just under review. It should be a YES WE ARE WORKING ON IT kind of feature.
Blake Lawson commented
Adding to the comments as I too am trying to import videos from Lightroom into Rush... seems odd that this has been an open question with no guidance for so long...
Dennis Ehle commented
Any update on this feature? I’m blown away that still - two years after the release of Rush - we can not access CC video/photo media uploaded from Lightroom directly within Rush. This is a critical feature and it seems like Adobe has not even prioritized inclusion!
Please - Please Please
Johan Grøtheim Eilertsen commented
Any updates from Benjamin or other Adobe representatives? I'm holding out on both Premiere Rush and Lightroom CC cloud video uploads until I know how to make my videos from different sources available cross platform.
Andrew England commented
It's bizarre how this works. I have just set my self up with CC and Lightroom CC. I thought the whole point would be to have a central cloud store of media. I don't understand why content cant be shared across apps or even just viewable in the sync folder.
David Marx commented
This one is baffling. The whole point of the Creative Cloud ecosystem was that it would allow us to painlessly use resources from one app in another!
Further, there is currently no slideshow module or video editing capabilities inside of Adobe Lightroom (Cloud-based) and what is inside of Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic is super out of date.
Clemens Frauscher commented
it is really very hard to understand that there is no possibility to use videos stored in LrCC with Pr Rush ..... The really USP of Adobe Creative Cloud and all the apps there is (and should be much more in future) that you can use them easy together with one data source - please add this possibility very urgent - thanks!
Jenna Langer commented
having the albums show up would be enough for me - I would make an album of the photos and videos I wanted to use from Lightroom, and then access all of those files in rush.
Adobe should be embarrassed that while you can import videos from dropbox cloud you can't import videos from lightroom CC cloud. For my use case I can see an alternative workaround; essentially I want all my videos in one place and that means auto-uploads from my phone. If the creative cloud app, or PR app could upload new videos then I could have all the mobile stuff go there automatically and then would need to separately upload photos from SD cards to lightroom CC and videos from SD cards into the creative cloud folder.
As it currently stands I keep all videos in Lightroom as I can keep them in the albums with the photos so all memories are nicely organised in one place and available anywhere. I wont download all my videos and re-upload a 2nd copy to Premiere Rush, that just seems stupid.
Any timeline on a fix for this? Or an honest response that it just wont happen?
Simon Pedersen commented
As another user said, it is insane that I cannot access photos and videos that was uploaded to Creative Cloud from Lightroom Mobile inside Rush. I thought "Creative Cloud Storage" meant the same accross all apps that use Creative Cloud as a storage - but obviously not.
The logic here seems to be:
1. Creative Cloud is just "one thing" - however:
2. Lightroom stores content to a separate area of Creative Cloud - possibly as simple as a folder that is hidden from the desktop CC sync tool
3. The file system folder called "Creative Cloud Files" in your Explorer (if you're on Windows) does indeed point to the same Creative Cloud storage area as the one used by Lightroom Mobile - but you will never see photos from Lightroom Mobile here - they're hidden and only available in the cloud.
4. The files seen by Rush is only those uploaded by rush or by your file system. Not the files from Lightroom.
Side note: You can also view the content of your Creative Cloud storage here: https://assets.adobe.com/ - but it again doesn't show any of the files from Adobe Lightroom. It does however show something called Cloud documents, which for me contains my Adobe XD documents.
So ... this means that if I want to access my Lightroom content from Rush, I have to put them into the part of CC that is visible on my file system - but to be honest, I don't really understand how to get them there - other than to export them from Lightroom - and besides, it doesn't make sense to do this, as it would in effect duplicate the content and use twice as much storage.
So Ben, you asked for thoughts on how we wanted our lightroom assets to appear in Rush. This is how: just make the folder "Lightroom" appear inside Rush.
The issue is discussed and elaborated a bit here: https://forums.adobe.com/thread/2547579
