Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should have a video imported into Photoshop
    .
    We have the preview, the timeline at the bottom, and the layers on the right-hand side.

    Then, we should change whichever clip it is that we want to work with to a smart object
    .
    There is another VisiHow video on how to do that. This basically flattens our video clip to one big frame rather than a lot of individual frames.

    .

    We select "Filter" by clicking it
    .

  5. 5

    .

  6. 6
    We click "Median..."
    .
    This will bring up our "Median" window where we can edit our preferences. What "Median" does is it finds the median or the average-color pixel in certain areas. We can already see in the preview that it's somewhat flattening out the image and giving us something like a pentile effect.

  7. 7
    We can zoom out to see the whole image
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We can zoom in
    .
    The button is on the right-hand side.

  9. 9
    We can change the "Radius" value
    .
    We do it by clicking and dragging the slider. We can see that the higher the value is, the more the effect averages out the median color. It's actually really nice not just if we are trying to do something really subtle, but if we want to do something quite dramatic as well.

  10. 10
    Then, we click "OK"
    .
    The effect will be applied to the video. Now, the entire clip has the filter. It might be quite nice and dream-like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    If we want, we can hide the effect on the right-hand side
    .
    We can do it by clicking the eye icon.
