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.
For a long time Adobe Photoshop has offered workspaces. These are essentially saved configurations of panels; the ability to quickly switch between one layout to another. Photoshop CS6 includes one specifically for Motion, and I highly recommend you use it when editing video. To switch to the workspace, you could choose Window > Workspace. You'll also find a shortcut menu up here in the Options bar, and you can switch on over to Motion. If it doesn't match what you see on screen here, be sure to choose Reset Motion to put everything back to the default arrangement.
While doing this, this is going to give you access to the key elements you're going to need. For example, we have our timeline, we have our Layers panel where our video groups will be organized, and the ability to access nondestructive adjustments. Throughout the process, you can switch between other workspaces, such as Typography when using text, or back to Photography when doing color. I'm just going to bring up one more panel, which is File > Browse in Mini Bridge, and I'll leave that docked with my timeline. That'll make it easier for me to locate my particular footage as I work. There is my timeline, and remember, you can drag this up or down to make more room as you build. We'll explore the specific features in the timeline, as well as the rest of the panels, later in our lesson.
