Join Bryan O'Neil Hughes for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Adobe Camera Raw with video, part of Lightroom 5 and Photoshop: Working with Raw Photos (2013).
In the last video, we learned that Photoshop CC can take existing Photoshop documents and open them into a new Camera Raw filter. You can use selections and masks, and all the power of Photoshop, you can combine it with the ease of use and unique features in Camera Raw. Now, I want to show you something really interesting, and that applies to video. Because Photoshop can open, play and filter video, all that we have to do in order to make this work with Camera Raw is convert this for smart filters.
Now, I can navigate the Camera Raw filter, and we can use all the functionality we've been learning about. Add some contrast, darken the highlights, brighten the shadows, darken the black areas, add a bunch of punch or clarity, vibrance around the saturation. And if we toggle our preview, you can see we've dramatically changed our image. We could apply presets and use all of the different functionality, and various tabs. I click OK, and that's been applied to my video.
If I press play, I'll see that the changes I've made in Camera Raw have been applied to my video footage back in Photoshop. So, this is really cool, all of the power of the Camera Raw filter applied to video with in Photoshop. And from there, all I need to do is come in here and render my video out. So, we can see that all of our presets for various different video types and formats are all supported. We've got the ease of use of Camera Raw and all of the power of Photoshop, and even video coming together here.
I knew when we wired Camera Raw as a filter to Photoshop, a lot of new things would be possible, but I didn't even know that you could do this with video, and I've been really passionate about video in Photoshop for a while. I'm really excited about this. I'm sure if you hunt around, you'll find all sorts of unique things you can do with Camera Raw as well.
In this course, Photoshop senior product manager Bryan O'Neil Hughes explores the art and science of raw-format processing in both Camera Raw and Lightroom. First, take a look at working with raw-format photos in Lightroom, and using the Develop module to improve contrast, color, and tone, which make the details in your images pop.
Then switch over to Camera Raw to optimize raw-format images as well as video. Bryan also draws important comparisons between Camera Raw 8 and Lightroom 5, and shows ways to employ Camera Raw as a filter to layers or Smart Objects in Photoshop CC.
