Steps

  1. 1
    As we can see, we already have a video imported.
    There is a preview in the center, a timeline at the bottom, and the layers on the right-hand side. Make sure you select the layer that we're going to be working with, and convert it to a smart object. I've shown you how to do that in another video. It's important to do this when adding another layer, because it will flatten the layer to one frame, instead of treating as a lot of individual frames.

    Once you've done that, it will appear purple on the Timeline toward the bottom of the screen.
    Click on it to start editing it.

  5. 5
    We can zoom out or in using the '-' and '+' symbols, or type in a percentage.
    I prefer 25%, which will usually show us the whole image.

  7. 7
    We can change the "Cell Size" by clicking and dragging the bar, or typing a number on the right-hand side.
    This will give the effect of a pointillist painting. It's meant to look abstract.

  8. 8
    Once we are happy, press "OK" to apply it to our video.
    This is quite strange, but if we had a lot of colors moving, it might have a nice effect.
