Export in 4K!
Why are we limited to 1080p for export? We shoot in 4K on our phones now. We should be able to export the same! We need the freedom to change the sequence resolution so we can decide if we want to downgrade our 4K to match our slow mo footage or upgrade our slow mo footage into our 4K project...
We are happy to let you know that we just released an update to Rush in the App Store (Version 1.0.2) that let’s you export in 4k resolution.
Projects that were created with 4k videos will now export in 4k by default (open ‘Quality Settings’ on the share screen details)
Note that projects with videos in 1080 will continue to export in 1080 Full HD resolution.

I’m not seeing the option to export in 4K? I have the latest version and my only options are 720p/1080p with match framerate or 30fps.......

Looking forward to exporting in 4k - Thank You!!!
@kevin peeples when anonymous says “the phone is not up to the task” or exporting 4k video this is clearly non-sense on multiple points,
1) as has been pointed out it’s been done before
2) phone compute power and i/o varies widely and model is mentioned
3) encoding is one of the easiest 4k tasks on a phone because think about it - it doesn’t have to be interactive,
It may take a while, but it’s *much* harder to moving and manipulate these massive data sizes interactively as the user produces the video, which is not in question here. In fact it’s so much harder I believe an article mentioned they use some sort of proxy assets in 1080p,
Export doesn’t have to be responsive. The faster the better but people can start it and go get a cup of coffee if need be.
I only vaguely recall that article but if it was correct, it can’t work exactly the same on an iPad Pro 12.9 because theirs more real estate than 1080p. They’d have to limit the screen area you can work with or change how proxies work or whatever.
Anonymous, Excel could export 4k video if someone’s life dependended on it, (google turing complete excel) so really there is no inherent limitation here. it’s mostly a matter of waiting time.
Again, it’s something simple, like it didn’t make the feature cut this time, or they’re having to rework a part of the architecture because what it would take do it well couldn’t be fully foreseen in the past whe it was done, or similar.
Well, Anonymous, what makes you say that? iMovie can export in 4K... the native Photos app can trim and save as new clip in 4K, so I would disagree. There’s nothing stopping Rush on my iPhone from exporting in 4K.
If you are talking about exporting to 4K from your phone, I think you are SOL. Not because Adobe won't give it to you, but simply because the phone is not up to the task. If you want to export to 4K, you have to do that on your PC/Mac.
On iOS, 4k export is not available. We hope to have the ability to export to 4k soon. In the meantime, you can sync your project to the desktop version and export a 4k video from there.
On iOS, we always save a copy of your video to the Camera Roll on export.
Here's the workflow:
Tap on Share > Tap Export. Once rendering is complete, the rendered file is saved to your Camera Roll. We then give you options to publish to multiple social destinations.
We're currently exploring ways to make the Share experience better.
Speed controls are on the top of our priority list as of now. Please keep looking it in a future release.
Thanks for your feedback. We really appreciate it.
I’m editing a video, most clips were filmed in 4K but when I went to upload to YouTube the highest resolution available to upload was 1080. Does this editing program really not allow uploads at 4K? Also I don’t see an option to save the video, only to upload to social media. I backup all my videos. Without the 4K upload, lack of ability to save videos, and the inability to speed up and slow down clips, I’ll be going back to iMovie. I’m surprised this program launched without these simple yet important features.
What’s the point of having to go to desktop to export in 4K? I can use premiere pro if I want to do that. I through rush was designed to edit on mobile and post to social media? What’s the point of all that if I have to go to my desktop?
>FWIW, you can export 4K from the desktop app. Hope that helps.
What do you base your hope for help on because I see neither.
Its a very simple feature deficiency that should be addressed.
There is absolutely no technical constraint that would prevent 4k from bein supported.
It was either triaged to be postponed some future uodate, or its simply not on the roadmap.
All companies have to make choices and trade offs. This was a poor decision, to not support the hardware’s native capability. It not just 4k, iPhines can do 4k 60fps. Unless you use this app then you are sent back to the the 90’s.
I don’t want to trivialize it, even the latest iPhones only have the compute of a smalll laptop. so it takes some hard work and clever texhnjiques, but the point is we could have it, should have it, but don’t have it. This is core architecture stuff, Adobe should have nailed if as 4k phones are not new.
if you need some help let me know, $20 says it gets done in two weeks, I’ve got a ,kttttle time. Whatever the case, lead, follow, or....welll at least run this one up the chain and take a shot at upping the priority.

FWIW, you can export 4K from the desktop app, just not the mobile app. Also, if you want ensure a 4K Timeline, make sure the first clip you drop into the timeline (Clip #1) is 4K.
Hope that helps.

Ann, you can export in 4K from Rush on your phone? It won't allow me to, either on ipad or iphone and I'm using only 4K media.
I'm using 4K video, because my iPhone shoots 4K video.... so in using Rush on my iPhone, I'd like to be able to export in the original resolution of my media on my phone.

I assume if your using 4K Video, your also using a CPU with 16 gb or higher RAM. I believe the intention is to save time rendering with less or even 16 GB RAM devices, as scrubbing with less or even with 16 GB can be time consuming. I imagine another solution would be for Adobe to allow replacement of clips from the same location or original location after import. That would be nice, if I was working with 4K. But even such, I noticed that I would still have to swap to lower resolution just to scrub again with faster functionality, before changing back, and exporting.

Please allow us to upload 4K video shot on the Iphone X
Ive tested projects with only 4K footage and it still limits to 1080p...
Branden Hart commented
I’m not downgrading my video! This is 2018! This product is on its way to greatness, but I haven’t used 1080p in years. Looking forward to the update.
I can export in 4K... but my video is entirely recorded in 4K as well.
