My first Rush proect went very well!

One of my neighbors passed away suddenly, and the funeral was this last Saturday. So, I volunteered to video the ceremony.

I've been a professional Adobe customer since 1987 when Illustrator was first released, and I've made my solo freelance career since using mainly Adobe software tools. At 74, I'm still working, by choice, because I'm having too much fun to stop!

I have a good amount of photography experience, but not very much video. But I felt pretty confident with the gear I took to the service: Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max, a compact Manfroto Go Free tripod, a Moment Magsafe tripod adaptor, and a Mophie external battery verlroed to a tripod leg. I also used my Apple Watch's camera remote app to turn the video on and off between speakers. I shot in iOS's portrait Cinematic mode for the auto face focus and the f-stop control.

Before the service, I tried iMovie, but found it rather confusiing and kind of clunky. I've used Premiere Pro in the past, and I do like it, but then I recalled seeing Rush amongst the available apps, and I tried it and liked it.

So, after the service, I started a Rush project to edit my footage. Everything loaded smoothly, and I figured out how to apply cross-dissolves between clips and how to adjust the cut points on out-going and in-coming clips, as well as dissolve durations.

There were two hymns sung during the ceremony, and there was nothing worthwhile to video during the singing, so, I opened a hymnal and photographed the music for each hymn so that I could still-frame the sheet music during the voice track. That was easy to do with Rush, but I had to figure out how to turn off the strange "zooming" the app does with stills.

It also wasn't too hard to insert title templates to super the people's names over their respective clips.

I finished adjusting everything in the 42-minute-program-time-project, exported it to an .mp4 file and sent it to my neighbor's widow today.

She was so thrilled and impressed with my speed and professionalism! That's kinf of effect I go for to know that I did a good job!

Thanks so much, Adobe, for all your products and all you've done for decades now, which have enhanced my life and work so profoundly!
