Video: New video features in CS4

If you use Photoshop CS3 Extended, I just want to take a minute here in this movie and give you a glimpse of some of the key new features in Photoshop CS4 Extended. Now, one of the big ones is the ability to animate 3D objects. So in CS3 we could move a 3D object around, but we cannot animate that, and we can do that now in CS4. Later on in this training series, we are actually going to take this 3D jet and make it fly through space and rotate as it's flying. Another really key feature for speeding up the workflow they have added, if we go here to the flyout of the Animation panel, is it they have added Timeline Shortcut Keys. So now we can do things like jump to the end of our animation or the beginning of our animation or the beginning of the work area or the end of work area or the in point or the out point, we can advance one frame at a time and all these things can be done with keyboard shortcuts, which really speeds up the whole workflow.

Another thing that they haven't really added but they have enhanced the ease of is the ability to playback audio. (Music playing.) Photoshop CS3 Extended actually did have the ability to playback audio, but it was a last minute feature that was thrown in. It wasn't in the documentation. It wasn't even in the interface. So if you didn't know the keyboard shortcut of how to access it, then you couldn't playback audio in your movie. But now, there is a speaker icon right here in the Timeline and so if you want to playback audio, again it's as simple as a click of a button.

(Music playing.) And I should point out it's a very intuitive click of a button as well. So we'll look at a little bit more in- depth at all of these as well as many more features as we go through the training.
