Apply Tile Filter to Video in Photoshop CS6

Edited by Freya, Ash0hley, Eng

You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how to apply a tile filter to a video in Photoshop CS6, on Windows 7. As we can see, I've already imported a video, which is being shown as a preview, as well as on the timeline, and in "Layers" on the right-hand side.

Steps

  1. 1
    Before we do anything, we need to ensure that this layer has been converted to a smart object. If we hover the cursor over the video clip thumbnail, it ways "Smart Object thumbnail". It means that the video clip is flattened down, so that Photoshop sees it as one big layer, or frame, rather than a lot of individual frames. It will allow us to apply a filter; however, it will restrict us if we want to adjust the speed or duration of that particular clip.

    We can also change the offset, which is how far it's been offset from the original image. Let's type 20. There is the option to "Fill Empty Area With: Background Color, Foreground Color, Inverse Image, or Unaltered Image."

    Now we will see that where the inverse is, it's darker behind, as well as having an outline on the outside. That appears as a new sub-layer on the right-hand side.

    We can hide it by clicking on the eye for either "Smart Filters" or "Tiles". We can also remove it by undoing it as we would normally.
