Adobe has released Adobe Premiere Express, a free, web-based video remix and editing technology that’s designed to be easy and fun to use. The online video-editing software is now available for users of YouTube and MTV.com.

Adobe Premiere Express' user interface is all drag-and-drop and designed so that even novice web users can edit video online. With Adobe Premiere Express, users can quickly create and edit mash-up style Web videos by combining video clips, music, photos, effects, transitions and titles.

Adobe Premiere Express is available free to users on YouTube.com and MTV.com. At MTV.com, site visitors can remix Kelly Clarkson's new video, Never Again to enter a contest to win a chance for MTV to play their music video remix on the MTV network. The contest runs through June 27.

The technology is available on YouTube's TestTube site, where users can edit and assemble new videos and publish their remixes to YouTube.

Adobe Premiere Express is a lightweight Flash-based Web application, and does not require plug-ins or special software downloads. Adobe Premiere Express requires Flash 9.0.
