Steps

  1. 1
    As we can see, Photoshop has been opened already
    .

  2. 2
    Two videos have been imported into Photoshop
    .
    There is the preview in the center, the timeline at the bottom, and the layers at the right-hand side.

    What we need then is to ensure that we've selected the layer with which we want to work
    .

    We make sure that the video has been converted into a smart object
    .
    What this does is Photoshop basically flattens the particular layer and treats it as one frame that you can edit without changing the source. It does not apply filters directly to a lot of little frames as when we try to apply a filter before the clip is a smart object. We can see that the first clip is purple in this tutorial. The other clip is still blue.

    We make sure that we click the purple clip to double-check that we are working with the right layer
    .

  8. 8
    We click "Fibers..."
    .
    What "Fibers" does is, as we can see in the pop-up window, it creates a filter over our video, which makes it look like as if it's made of fibers. With the "Fibers" pop-up window, we can edit our preferences.

    We can change "Variance"
    .
    All we do is we click and drag the slider to each side to make the effect less or more intense. Alternatively, we can just type in the number.

    The same is for "Strength"

    Then, we just click "OK" to apply the effect to the video clip
    .
    It does not look good when still, but when the video is played, the pattern will move slightly and alter for the whole video. It will not be on a frame-by-frame basis. Depending on what we are working with, it can be a really nice effect.
