With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Author Rich Harrington guides you through this brand-new workflow, from building a sequence to working with audio and exporting your video in a variety of high-quality formats. The course also covers how Photoshop's strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates to video, from fixing under- or overexposed footage, performing color balancing, and adding vibrance and contrast to special effects, such as converting to black and white and using Smart Filters to soften skin.
With video, the goal is to shoot it at the speed you need. What I mean by that is, make sure that if you are queuing actors, or doing a pan or a zoom, that you get it as close to right in camera as possible. However, after the fact, you can speed up or slow down the clip right inside the Photoshop timeline. This last shot is taking a little bit long to achieve its desired result. (video playing) I would like them to get out of the frame more quickly. I am going to go ahead and split this clip here, discard away the portion I don't want, and then click the icon here to bring up the properties for the clip.
Here I could change the speed, and if you go with the larger number, it's going to give you a faster clip. Do your best to avoid decimals here. I find that typing in a number works a lot better than trying to use the slider. (video playing) Notice, in doing that, it didn't change the duration of the clip in the timeline, but it did speed things up. After doing a clip speed change, you may need to grab the handle and ripple the shot back a little bit to clean it up. We've got all of our shots in place.
Let's go ahead and take a look at adding a few transitions to smooth out the edit points.
