Apply Lens Flare to Video in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Alexander Avdeev, Eng
You're watching VisiHow! In this video, we are going to show you how you can apply a lens flare to a video clip in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.
- 3We make sure that the layer has been converted into a smart object. What converting does is Photoshop flattens out the image of a video. So, we are working with one big frame rather than with a lot of frames, which is how a video is normally filmed. Once we convert the layer into a smart object, we lose the ability to change thing like the speed and the duration of the clip; but we can treat is as an image basically. We can apply filters over the top.
- 12Once we are satisfied with all of the changes, we just click "OK". The effect will be applied to the smart object, making a really nice difference to the video. If we click the play icon, the effect will be shown throughout the whole thing. If we want to make the clip look as if the flare lens is moving, depending on which way we are pointing with our camera, then maybe it is worth duplicating and adding a second effect later on in the video.
