Although BlackBerry brought over a few of their apps to Android from BlackBerry 10, one fan favorite app that never made the cut (yet?) is Story Maker. Story Maker allows anyone to create, edit and export their own video clips using content such as music, videos, and photos directly from their device but with it being missing from the Priv, folks are understandably looking for alternatives. One such alternative arrived today in the Google Play Store by way of Adobe's Premiere Clip, which is a free video editor that shares a lot of similarities with Story Maker.
- Automatic Video Creation - Simply choose a soundtrack and select the pace — Clip artfully sets your images to the beat of the music. Your video is immediately shareable, or you can move into the Freeform editor to customize further with powerful editing features.
- Powerful Video Editing - Drag and drop clips and photos in the order that you like, trim out the parts you don't want, and add visual polish with lighting adjustments, transitions, and slow motion effects. Sync to Music lets you edit to the beat of your music like a pro.
- Sounds Great - Choose from stock soundtracks, or add your own music. Smart Volume smooths audio levels between clips, and Auto Mix dynamically balances soundtracks with your audio.
- Looks Great - Apply custom lighting and color Looks from Adobe Capture CC to enhance the appearance and overall mood of your videos.
- Photo Motion - Add visual interest to static images. Turning the option ON will apply a slow, subtle zoom.
- Easy to Share - Save finished videos to your gallery, share directly to Twitter, Facebook or YouTube, or send them to Premiere Pro CC for additional editing.
- Take It Further - When you export a project to Premiere Pro CC, the edits, music markers and Looks you applied in Premiere Clip will appear seamlessly in your timeline.
- Powered by Creativesync - Adobe CreativeSync ensures that your files, fonts, design assets, settings and more all instantly appear in your workflow wherever you need them. Start your creative work on any device and seamlessly pick it up on another.
As noted in the features list, one benefit of using Premiere Clip is the fact you can also export the files to Adobe Premiere Pro CC on the desktop for some extra finishing touches if need be. Premiere Clip is available as a free download with no ads or in-app purchases, but you will need an Adobe account to use it. Adobe accounts are, of course, free but something to be aware of.
