Steps

  1. 1
    As we can see, a video has been imported into Photoshop
    .
    There is another VisiHow video on how to do that. In this tutorial, we have two clips showing up as two separate layers at the right-hand side.

    We click "Convert to Smart Object"
    .
    Photoshop will not double-check with us. The video will look completely different in the "Layer" tab and in the timeline. We have to bear in mind that when we convert a clip into a smart object, we lose the ability to do certain things such as changing the volume or the speed and things like that in the particular clip.

  5. 5
    If we decide to go backwards, we just undo or click "Edit" and "Step Backward"
    .
