In this course, Adobe Photoshop experts Tim Grey and Olaf Giermann look at the new features available in Photoshop CS6 and show you how to incorporate them into your workflow. They take you on a tour of the interface, which has a new look and different controls in some of the panels, and introduce you to all the new features in areas like adjustments, image cleanup, creative effects, text and graphics, video, and 3D.
So, now let's focus on this Video Group. What is it all about? You see, I can open this Video Group and I have some key frames I can animate here, but that's not our concern for now. You also see here in the layers panel that we have the Video Group and that the video is inside the Video Group. And if you have just one clip inside the Video Group, It's the same as if you would work without Video Group. But now let's add another video clip. And I take the second one here, and I just drag it from the Mini Bridge onto the canvas, I hold down Shift so its centered in the canvas and I click OK.
And now I have a second video clip, and if I switch to the timeline you see, we have, two tracks now. One for the first video, inside the Video Group, and one for the second video I just added, outside of the Video Group. Well, you could work like this, you can make transitions by animating the Opacity Key Frames here. But let me show how it's much more easier now in Photoshop CS6. And it's just by dragging and dropping the second video inside the Video Group. And what now happened, is the second video is put onto the same track as the first video.
And now you can, trim the videos, you can cut them in parts, you can make transitions, all of that is possible now very easily. And the best thing is, that you can just reorder the clips, by dragging and dropping them in the layers panel. So, if I want to reorder them, I just take the bottom clip, and drag it on top of the other one, and you see, they have switched positions here in the timeline. So, that's basically what the Video Group feature is all about. You have multiple clips in one timeline, in one track, and you can easily work with them now.
