Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Saving a Photoshop file for a NLE or motion graphics system, part of Motion Graphics for Video Editors: Terms and Technology.
- Let's take a moment to look at a layered Photoshop file,…and ensure that it's ready to hand off…to an editing or motion graphics tool.…I just wanna share a few extra steps that I take,…to make sure a seamless transfer occurs.…First off, let's just make a little room here,…and expand the Layers Panel.…I'm happy with the image as is,…so I don't need the Histogram…or Info Panel taking up space.…So I'll just close those out of the way.…Also get rid of the Adjustments here,…so I can just see the Layers.…
Well, this is a composite image.…And if I'm happy with the image,…I might choose to merge a few things.…For example, I feel that this is pretty solid.…When I import into an NLE,…some of options like Adjustment Layers here,…such as the Levels Adjustment, may not come in.…So, I'll select the layers that I'm happy with,…and choose Layer, Merge Layers.…Shortcut is Command or Control E.…And let's name that.…
BG for background.…I then have the bars, and a logo.…That all seems pretty solid.…Next I had text.…And I'd like to turn this into a graphic that builds.…
