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.

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