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.
There is one more type of export setting and that is DPX for Digital Picture Exchange. This is a very common format used in high-end workflows for feature film. The ability to generate a DPX sequence directly out of Photoshop means that you can use Photoshop's video features on high-end projects, such as feature films or special effects. If you need to work with individual clips and touch them up, or generate animations using some of Photoshop Extended 3D features, you can easily render a high-quality DPX sequence.
To create the DPX file simply choose File > Export > Render Video. Within the Format option choose DPX. At this point, the only real preset you have is the size. You'll see that there is a lot of options here, including the ability to go to maximum bit depth. So if you've mixed in graphics or other formats that go beyond 8-bits per channel, you can actually bump this up. Notice here too, that you can choose a wide range of color profiles. We can extend the range of the output, but those generally only come in when you're working with graphic elements or 3D models. For video, I recommend just sticking with the Video preset, and you'll find them interspersed based on frame rate. You could choose the video option at 24p, 25p or 30p. If you want to go to maximum bit depth, that's fine. However there's not much to be gained with a standard video file, especially when shooting DSLR.
I'll go ahead and use that there, because I do have some graphics interspersed specified to export the entire range of the project, and then choose a location. It is a very good idea to make sure you create a subfolder. Remember, with the DPX sequence, you're going to get a separate image for every single frame. So I recommend that you name a specific folder for each export and target it during that stage. When I click Render, all of the files will be output to the intended target.
