  2. 2
    A video has been imported
    .
    We have the preview in the middle, the timeline at the bottom, and the layers on the right-hand side. Now, because we want to apply a filter to the entire video clip, we should ensure that the clip that we are working with has been converted into a smart object. It has already been done in the tutorial. We can see that the converted layer has the symbol in the bottom right-hand corner different from the film-reel symbol displayed on the other layer. Also in the timeline, the converted clip is purple. These show us that the layer is a smart object. The conversion basically flattens the video to one big frame rather than a lot of individual ones.
