Play 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 play a video preview in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7.

Steps

  1. 1
    To begin, we should already have a video imported into Photoshop
    .
    There is another VisiHow video on how to do that. We will see our preview and timeline.

    To view the preview, we click the sideways triangle at the left-hand side
    .
    It is the play icon. Photoshop will play the video from wherever the red scroller is. Although we are playing a video as a preview, it might look quite slow or quite behind the scroller in our Photoshop preview. However, the video will be OK after we render it. The reason for this is that a lot of things happen if we use a high-definition video. Photoshop is resource-demanding, and it might be too much to handle for older computers. The preview might lag behind the scroller or skip frames.
