As of Photoshop CS6, both CS6 and CS6 Extended have much easier…video functionality,…so you can open any sort of video file off of your camera, or point and shoot, or …phone, and do just about anything you're used to doing in Photoshop.…Now, prior to CS6 you have video functionality only in Extended, and it does…differ a little bit, but you can do a lot of things with video.…So, let me show you what that means to black and white.…You see that I've got a timeline here, and I can scrub through that, confirm that…that's video; it's got some basic audio and editing controls.…
And all we need to do in order to add an adjustment layer is to the first…convert that to a Smart Filter.…Essentially, what that'll do is it'll put a wrapper around the video clip, and…say, whatever you do to one part, make sure you do it to all of it.…So, I'm going to add Black & White adjustment layer, let's hit auto, I can play…around with my various sliders, I could even tint that; click OK.…And if we come out here, and Play, everything has been applied to our video.…
