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'd like to be more keyboard driven, there are actual shortcuts that you can use down in the Photoshop timeline. However, you have to enable them first. Clicking the submenu here, you could choose to Enable Timeline Shortcut Keys and this will bring up several options that are truly useful. First off, you can use the spacebar to start and stop playback, and this gives you similar functionality to most other editing tools. The thing you're going to need to do most often is start and stop playback. So why not make it the biggest button on the keyboard? Next, we can use the left and right arrow keys to nudge through one frame at a time. This is incredibly convenient while editing video, but not so convenient while doing things like trying to nudge a layer.
Notice if we have a layer selected, using the arrow keys doesn't move the layer, but rather moves the timeline. So be prepared to turn on and off the Timeline Shortcut Keys, as you switch between video editing and other tasks in Photoshop. So the left arrow is going to go back one frame, right arrow forward one frame. Adding the Shift key will instead jump you 10 frames at the time. If you want to go to the beginning of the timeline, pressing the Home button will take you to the start. The End key will take you all the way to the end, and that's a quick way to move from the front to the back, as you're building your program. If you want to move to the endpoint for current layer, you could select a clip and then press the up arrow.
It'll automatically snap the playhead to the selected clip. Notice I select a new clip and press the up arrow; it goes to be in point, or the down arrow to go to be out point. This will make it easier, as you need to drag and drop multiple elements, if you want to snap them to a line, such as titles or multilayered composites.
