Apply Wind to Video in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng, Anonymous

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can apply a wind effect to a video clip in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. As you can see, I've already imported video into Photoshop. It is being shown as layers on the right-hand side and in a timeline at the bottom. To find out how to do that, refer to our tutorial on importing video into Photoshop CS6.

Steps

  1. 1
    Select the appropriate layer.
    We will click the layer we want to work with in the list on the right-hand side. Convert the layer to a smart object. This flattens the video clip so Photoshop sees it as one big frame, rather than lots of individual ones. This is vital if we want to add a filter to video in Photoshop. Please refer to our tutorial on converting video layers to smart objects for more information.
