Don’t forget, leave time to render, watch and edit and re-render!
Unsplash and Pexels are great places to go to grab commercial free licensed work.
Add sound to your composition as well.
11:50 Video Editing in Photoshop
Photoshop actually has a timeline and video editing capabilities. The redesigned, clip-based Timeline panel reflects video editors like Adobe Premiere and After Effects, including transitions and effects that give finished videos professional polish. Additionally you have all of the filters and adjustments and the power of Photoshop.
As you prepare to present your slides for your Vermont Photography assignment, assembling and using the Photoshop video editor may be a useful tool for you to consider, especially since you will be touching up, editing, resizing and handling your photos.
Let’s look at the timeline and make a quick video. It won’t be fancy, but it will be a good proof of concept for what you can do.
Here is a link to Adobe’s Support Docs on Video Editing in Photoshop
For reference, we will be in Public Folders / CAWD2 / After Effects / California Promo
Before we begin, if you have all your clips in One Folder, you can perform the first step on the list below, otherwise you can add media while in the layer group. We’ll try both.
1. Load files into stack (File>Scripts>Load Files into Stack). It loads them as layers or the other way is to click on the layer group and Add Media once you open the Timeline in Step Two.
2. Show Timeline (Window>Timeline). Then select all layers, go to Timeline menu at left of any one clip and choose “New Video Group from clips.” Then drag and drop them on the timeline to re-arrange.
3. Trim clips—drag from either end
4. Add Transitions—fade in or out from icon in Timeline. Drag the transition from the menu to a spot between clips.
5. Add Background Music (Audio Track). To trim, position playhead and click Scissors. Then delete trimmed portion. Right click to fade and volume.
6. Add Text and Titles—drag Type layer to top of Layers panel to make it overlay (OR, in timeline from Video Group 1 menu, choose “New Video Group” and move it up to that Video Group)
7. Use Photoshop Like Always – change any clip with effects at bottom of Layers panel (choose a clip in Layers panel to change whole clip)
Export (Render Video)—from Timeline Options menu at top right of timeline. Default is probably OK, but you can choose from presets.
