    Photoshop Timeline Video Editing

    It all seems go with video editing at the moment at Greta Powell Training especially with Premier Pro. However for some Premier may be overkill and they may just want to produce and edit small videos without encountering a steep learning curve. Which is where Photoshop comes into its own. In the Photoshop Timeline video editing is straightforward, easy to learn and if you own Photoshop comes at no additional expense.


    For much of its existence Photoshop has been able to produce frame based animations but CS6 really saw the turnaround when it became a ‘fully fledged’ video editor.


    Creating a Photoshop Video

    Photoshop comes with its own timeline built in where you can drag in clips, layers and transitions to create powerful videos for marketing, tutorials, interviews and podcasts. To initiate video editing either turn on the Motion Workspace or activate the Timeline from the Window Menu (Window Menu >Workspaces >Motion or Window >Timeline). The Photoshop Timeline will then appear at the bottom of the screen.





    Everything Video works on the Timeline regardless of whether its a Frame based animation, a simple GIF or full video such as MPG or Quicktime. Once you have your various clips positioned on the Timeline you can then add effects and filters just as you do with photographs.


    Exporting Video to MP4

    You can easily export video from Photoshop into MP4 format playback – simply


    Go to the Render Video box >Select QuickTime Export >Choose MPEG4

    In the Export Settings box >Choose MP4 or MP4 (ISMA) from the File Format

    Under Video Specifications
