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.
For purposes of this course, I'm going to assume that you are relatively new to video editing. However, I also assume that you've used Photoshop before. We're going to jump through Adobe Photoshop and use a lot of the existing features that you already know, and hopefully love. We're going to quickly show you how to apply those to a video workflow. Now if you are completely new to Photoshop, there are hours upon hours of training available here at lynda.com. But I don't expect that you have a deep working knowledge of video.
We're going to explore the process of assembling video, just the postproduction pipeline, taking clips off a hard drive and loading them into Photoshop, in order to create a finished product. Now I want you to realize a few things about Photoshop CS6 and its video editing capabilities. First off, let me say that what the team has accomplished with the product is outstanding. It does a lot of things really well. However, it is a version 1 product. So there are lots of things I'd love to see, that aren't there yet. There are a few rough spots. If you're working on an underpowered system, you might find it easier to turn off audio from time to time, and let the video frames cache first, then turn the audio back on. It's not a perfect workflow, but I'll tell you this much. It will help you get the job done.
It'll let you get the video off your hard drive, turn it into something that solves a problem for a client, or let's you communicate your vision, and then publish it out and share with others. So just remember this, you're starting on a new journey, so is Photoshop when it comes to editing video and delivering finished product. There's going to be a few bumps on the road. But there's a lot of cool things and a lot of fun to be had. Let's go ahead and start to explore what you can get done with Adobe Photoshop.
