With the release of Photoshop CS6, Adobe introduced the ability to edit video footage. Come along with AdoramaTV's Richard Harrington as he 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.
Learn how Photoshop’s strongest feature, its image enhancement toolset, translates over 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.
Topics to be discussed include:
- Understanding the video file formats supported in Photoshop
- Controlling playback in the Timeline
- Building a sequence
- Organizing and editing A-roll and B-roll footage
- Adding transitions, adjusting volume, adding music
- Color balancing a shot, adjusting contrast
- Adding a lower-third graphic and animating text
- Exporting to H.264 or QuickTime
Skill level: Intermediate
You should be comfortable with and have a working knowledge of Adobe Photoshop (no beginners please), but a novice with video is okay.
Bring your own laptop (can be Mac or PC) if you want to follow along, and make sure it is fully charged as there won't be enough wall outlets for charging.
Please make sure to bring headphones to listen to audio through your computer if you intend to edit along with Richard—this is a must. Install Photoshop CS6 or load the 30-day demo prior to class.
Practice footage that will be used during the class will be provided to registered attendees through an email with a download link—this will be sent to the email you register with a few days before the event, please make sure and check for it and download it before the event.
