Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we're going to show you how you can add a fiber filter to a video clip in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.

Steps

  1. 1
    As we can see, Photoshop has been opened already
    .

    Two videos have been imported into Photoshop
    .
    There is the preview in the center, the timeline at the bottom, and the layers at the right-hand side.

    What we need then is to ensure that we've selected the layer with which we want to work

  4. 4
    We make sure that the video has been converted into a smart object
    .
    What this does is Photoshop basically flattens the particular layer and treats it as one frame that you can edit without changing the source. It does not apply filters directly to a lot of little frames as when we try to apply a filter before the clip is a smart object. We can see that the first clip is purple in this tutorial. The other clip is still blue.

    We make sure that we click the purple clip to double-check that we are working with the right layer
    .

  6. 6
    We click "Filter"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    We move the cursor to "Render"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    We click "Fibers..."
    .
    What "Fibers" does is, as we can see in the pop-up window, it creates a filter over our video, which makes it look like as if it's made of fibers. With the "Fibers" pop-up window, we can edit our preferences.

    First, we can zoom in and out with the "+" and "-" icons at the left-hand side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    We can also select the zoom percentage
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    We can change "Variance"
    .
    All we do is we click and drag the slider to each side to make the effect less or more intense. Alternatively, we can just type in the number.

  12. 12
    The same is for "Strength"
    .
    We click and drag the slider to make the effect stronger or weaker, depending on our preferences.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    We can also click "Randomize" if we like
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Then, we just click "OK" to apply the effect to the video clip
    .
    It does not look good when still, but when the video is played, the pattern will move slightly and alter for the whole video. It will not be on a frame-by-frame basis. Depending on what we are working with, it can be a really nice effect.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    We can click the eye icon to hide the effect at the right-hand side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    We can step backwards if we decide that we don't want the effect after all
    .
