Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have a video imported already into Photoshop.
    It has been done in this tutorial. We have our preview and timeline. We have our clips as layers on the right-hand side.

    The layer or clip that we want to be adding a filter to should be ensured to be a smart object.
    There is another VisiHow video on how to convert a video clip into a smart object. This is important because when a video clip is a smart object, Photoshop treats the entire clip as one layer. It's almost like JPEG. Photoshop just flattens everything. That means that we'll lose the ability to change the volume or speed of the clip, but if we add a filter, then it goes to the entire clip, however many seconds and minutes it is. If we don't convert a clip into a smart object and add a filter, then the effect will be added only to one specific frame. If we have seven seconds of video, then that is a lot of frames. We ensure that we have our smart object.

  5. 5
    We click the "Average" blur.
    We can see that Photoshop did not ask us to change any settings. It just applied the effect automatically. It just automatically found the color from the image and added the blur.

    In this tutorial, the effect is not very nice.
