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.
I would like to thank you for joining me. My name is Richard Harrington and I hope you enjoyed this look at the video editing features inside Adobe Photoshop CS6. Couple concluding thoughts I'd like to leave you with. First off, remember, you want to use the right tool for the right job. Photoshop is great for assembling quick videos together, as well as taking advantage of powerful color correction tools. Photoshop is well-suited if you need to put together a quick project for the web or have several clips and maybe some still photos that you want to mix together into a finished product.
However, you're going to want to make sure you have proper hardware. If you skip this section where we talked about using the proper system configuration, both the OS, the RAM, the graphics card and the hard drive, go back and watch that. Nothing is harder for a computer to do than editing video, and you're going to want to make sure that you keep enough power in your system, so it could handle these tough tasks. Next, remember that video editing is a pretty slow process. Throughout today we jumped forward a few times and skipped some of the boring parts. However, if you want to do a real world project, you're going to have to do those boring parts. It takes many hours to put together a video that only last a few minutes.
Remember, video editing takes time, and the newer you are at it, the harder it's going to be. So try to have fun, approach it with good nature, and remember, the more you do it, the easier it gets.
