Join Seán Duggan for an in-depth discussion in this video What you should know before watching this course, part of Creating a Cinemagraph in Photoshop.
- [Voiceover] For this course you need to have a good working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop. If you're new to Photoshop you should be able to pick things up pretty quickly but being familiar with the essential features and functionality of the program, especially techniques for working with layers and layer masks will help you get more out of this course. If you want to create your own cinemagraphs you'll need to have a camera that shoots video. Which is pretty much any camera these days. As well as a tripod that you can use to stabilize the camera while you shoot your video clips.
If you're unfamiliar with the video editing features of Photoshop you might want to check out the video timeline chapter in my course Creative Video Composting with Photoshop or the chapter on video in Julieanne Kost's Photoshop CC Essential Training.
