Video: Playing video in Lightroom

In the next few chapters we'll talk about how we can start to work with our video files here inside of LightRoom. You know, most of our cameras these days allow us to capture still images and video files. And fortunately in LightRoom we can now import and work with these video files, in similar ways to working with our still images. Yet we can do even more. Alright, well here you can see I've selected the video folder. I'm in the library module and I press the G key, in order to view these video clips in the grid view. You'll notice there's a little overlay, which shows you the duration of the clip, and when you position the cursor over the clip, you can actually scrub back and forth across it. Now, it's kind of difficult to see these clips because they're so small. In order to increase their size, in the toolbar in this area, if you click on this triangle icon, you can choose the option for thumbnail size. Then, just drag the slider to the right to increase the size. Now, when you have a larger size, now you can see how you can scrub back and forth to get a preview of this clip.

In part two of Chris Orwig's Lightroom Essentials, you'll learn how to add important metadata to your images that will help you find and filter your library, process images and video, and export, email, and share photos—all from within the powerful Library module in Adobe Lightroom. First you'll learn how to flag, rate, and rank your photos and use the information to find images that match those criteria. Then tag them with locations and add keywords and identifying information that clearly distinguish the subject and your copyright. Chris also shows you how to make image adjustments with Quick Develop, and play, trim, and edit video. Lastly, find out how to export your photographs to a hard drive, email them to friends and clients, and upload them to sharing sites like Flickr and Facebook.

Topics include:
  • Adding flags, stars, and labels to images
  • Filtering your library by text, metadata, and file type
  • Stacking photos into groups
  • Creating a collection to group images
  • Tagging images with locations
  • Processing images in the Library module
  • Viewing and editing videos

Playing video in Lightroom

In the next few chapters we'll talk about how we can start to work with our video files here inside of LightRoom. You know, most of our cameras these days allow us to capture still images and video files. And fortunately in LightRoom we can now import and work with these video files, in similar ways to working with our still images. Yet we can do even more. Alright, well here you can see I've selected the video folder. I'm in the library module and I press the G key, in order to view these video clips in the grid view. You'll notice there's a little overlay, which shows you the duration of the clip, and when you position the cursor over the clip, you can actually scrub back and forth across it. Now, it's kind of difficult to see these clips because they're so small. In order to increase their size, in the toolbar in this area, if you click on this triangle icon, you can choose the option for thumbnail size. Then, just drag the slider to the right to increase the size. Now, when you have a larger size, now you can see how you can scrub back and forth to get a preview of this clip.

Now that being said, you may notice that that preview's a little bit pixelated. It's not quite clear. Well, to have an even better preview, and to play this back so you can really evaluate the clip, you want to navigate to the Loop view. To do so, press the E key or click on this icon right here, which allows you to view a larger preview. And you'll also notice that there's now a playback component. This playback component allows us to scrub or to play this clip. Now this is a clip that I captured simply by leaning my SLR camera against a pole.

And it's looking up at this sculpture, which moves. It's located right next to the beach. And it's just kind of a fun, short little clip. To evaluate this, what we want to do is either press the Space Bar key or click on the Play button in order to play it. There is some audio that the camera is recording. Eventually I'm not going to use that, yet still here, let's go ahead and play and listen to this clip just for a moment. Tap the Space Bar key or click on this triangle icon. I'll go ahead and do that and be quiet so that we can watch and listen. To this clip. Here goes. All right, well now that we've seen a portion of this clip, another way that you can view or navigate through the clip is to use this little scrubber right here. If you click on this what you can do is you can click and drag to the left or the right.

(SOUND) In order to scrub forward or backward through the clip. If you want an even larger view of the video clip, just simply click Shift Tab. When you do that it will minimize the rest of the LightRoom interface so that you can view and evaluate the clip in a larger way. Press Shift Tab again to bring back the rest of the interface. So that then you have a smaller view yet you have access to all of your panels and controls.
