In this video I want to give you a short walk-through, the new Timeline panel here in Photoshop CS6. And there are some things being changed that are very practical so you can work more easily on cutting and editing video material. So in order to show you the new Timeline, I switched to the Mini Bridge panel and opened a small video clip. Let's take this one here, it's about cooking. And you see Photoshop automatically switches to the Timeline and here, I can scrap through the video. So on first side, you notice the clip here the video track looks a little bit different than in previous versions.
So, here you have a little preview on the track which is very practical, and the manipulation of this track, is very easy. To shorten it, you just have to hover over the ends. Probably, you will know already these controls you can play back the video, you can stop it, you can switch from frame to frame forward or backward, and you can jump to the beginning of the video clip. Here you have some Cutting options, you can split the track at any given time.
Here you have some effects you can add to the clip and you'll notice, here is a new feature that is called View Group. And it is very practical when you are working with many clips and they are all on the same track. You can add more video groups or more material here at Media > New Video Group and so on. Or you can do it by this plus sign here at the end of the video track, and same is true for audio tracks. So, here you can add music if you'd like to, and the same applies to this plus sign here at the end so, you have multiple opportunities, and places where you can add something or delete something.
And there is still another way you can use the menu in the Layout Dropdown Field, and here you find all you need to know about video layouts. So, that's the menu. At the bottom left, you find the Converter Frame Animation option, and just next to it the Export option. So I can click on it, I can render the Video and Export it, of course you find this also in menu here, in the File menu under Export and render Video.
So, basically that's it and now you can look forward to all the interesting stuff which this new Timeline panel offers.
