Extrude a Video Clip 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 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.

Steps

  2. 2
    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.

  5. 5
    Click "Extrude".
    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.

    Decide whether to "Mask Incomplete Blocks".
    Click the box next to it to remove the checkmark and disable it, or leave it checked to leave it enabled. For this demonstration, we will keep it selected.

  12. 12
    Look at the canvas.
    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.

  13. 13
    Navigate to the layers list on the right-hand side.
    Note that we have sub-layers added on to the layer we have edited.

  14. 14
    Click the eye icon next to "Smart Filters".
    The eye icon will disappear, and the extrude effect will be hidden.

  15. 15
    Click where the eye icon was, just to the left of "Smart Filters".
    The eye icon will reappear, and the extrude effect will show up again on the canvas.

  16. 16
    Click on the eye icon next to "Extrude".
    This would hide the extrude effect only, which is useful if we had multiple smart filters on this layer, and wanted to hide or show specific ones only. The sub-layers can be deleted as well.
