In this course, Adobe Photoshop experts Tim Grey and Olaf Giermann look at the new features available in Photoshop CS6 and show you how to incorporate them into your workflow. They take you on a tour of the interface, which has a new look and different controls in some of the panels, and introduce you to all the new features in areas like adjustments, image cleanup, creative effects, text and graphics, video, and 3D.
So far you have seen what is possible with video layouts, but, come on, you are in Photoshop. One of the mightiest programs of the world. And all you can do within Photoshop, well, almost all you can do, you can apply to videos too. So, you can apply filters, and you can apply adjustments. And let's try that out. I go to this frame here and just for the moment, let's hide the upper layer here, the image. And now I want to apply some filter to this video and it's the first clip as you see, and it's very easy.
I can go to Filter. Filter gallery or any other filter. And choose some interesting effect here. Let's try just something out. And I think. They are all look interesting, somehow. Let's choose, it's difficult to choose. (UNKNOWN) So, I click on OK and that's it. The filter has been applied to the video. So you think. But if you scroll through the timeline you see it was just the frame we had exactly our mark on. So, that's not what we wanted.
We wanted the whole video clip with this filter applied. So let's go back one step. And the trick here is you just have to click on the video and convert it, right, to Smart object. So right-click on it. Choose Convert to Smart Object and that's it. If we now apply a filter, and of course we choose a frame where we see anything. Let's take this one. Now I can apply the same filter by holding down the Alt or the Option key on the Mac.
And click OK. And if we know scroll through the time we see the filter has been applied to the whole video clip. That's nice but there's even more. You can of course apply all the adjustments as, an Adjustment layer. And here, the trick is very easy you just have to put the Adjustment layer on top, of all the Video layers. And then they automatically apply to the videos. And you might notice here's a new Adjustment layer, and it's called Color Looker.
And this is a term many video folks know, at least the people from the industry know that, that you have. These Abstract and Device link profiles and the 3D LUT files. And if you don't know these terms and don't have any of these profiles. Or you don't know how to get these profiles because you cannot create these in Photoshop now. You just can use the presets which are Chip with Photoshop here. And yeah, just try it out. I need a frame where I see something.
So, let's choose this one. And all you have to do now, try out the different Presets. Some are very nice. Some are very strong. Some are very subtle. And you just can choose any one of them. You see, this is a subtle one but it looks very nice. If I now scroll through the Timeline this device link is applied to the whole video.
And of course, for this Adjustment Layer, you can specify from which point to which time point it shall last. So, just move your cursor over the beginning and clip It until it's just at the position you want it to be. And if I now go through the video, you see. From this point the color look up Adjustment layer works. And of course, also here you can make transitions, in this case, a fade and a fade at the end. So that it's not just hide and unhide action but you have a smooth transition. And it looks like this.
Now it doesn't work. Here you see no effect. And here the effect takes place 100%. I just recommend try this color look-up Adjustment layer and try all these different. settings and presets you have in there. And have fun with it.
