You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can extrude a video clip in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. As you can see, I've already got video open in Photoshop, which you can find out how to do in another video I've made. We have a timeline at the bottom, and layers on the right-hand side.
Ensure that the layer has been converted to a smart object
This basically flattens the video layer, so Photoshop sees it as one individual frame, rather than lots of separate ones. Refer to our tutorial on how to convert a layer to a smart object for more information.
It brings up a very small box with no preview. When we extrude, it applies an effect, where we can select either blocks or pyramids to be pulled outwards. It's a really interesting effect, and on video, it will be really nice when it's moving. Depending on how stylized it is, it will look quite abstract.
The changes have been applied to the video. We can see now that what it has done is pulled out pyramid shapes, almost like we have a bird's-eye view of a city. It's a really nice effect, especially with video.
