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.
If you decide that you want to create black and white video, or sepia tone video, the Black & White Adjustment layer is quite effective. I'm going to experiment here with this look just to show you what's possible. With the shot selected in the timeline, I can click the Black & White adjustments icon. This will come up, and by default, do a conversion. You'll find several presets that'll allow you to emphasize different areas to really get a unique conversion. However, the On Image tool is the key here to getting what you want. This allows you to click within the image, and separately control different areas for a better overall effect.
For example, by pulling down the greens here, I can make the grass really pop, and then playing with the reds, I could deal with some of the background elements and really help those stand out, so we're getting a better conversion. If I want a tint, just click this button here and you could assign an easy sepia tone or any other color that you want by simply using the standard color picker. That looks really good, however it doesn't fit the style of the story, so I'm just going to click the Delete icon to remove it from my project.
