1.2 Tools and Resources

Hello, everybody. Welcome back to video editing and Photoshop. This is lesson 1.2, where I just want to take a few moments to talk about the tools and resources for this course. First of all, let me point out that this is a Photoshop centric course. It is aimed at the beginner to intermediate level Photoshop users. I'm expecting that you have some basic knowledge of the interface in Photoshop and are familiar with things like layers, masks, and adjustment layers. I'm using Photoshop CC 2015. This is the version that was updated in the summer of 2015, although most of the features are available in the program all the way back to CS6. The focus of this course is the ability to edit the videos, not necessarily taking them. So the resources for the first project are all stock videos. And there are links to the source where these were originally downloaded from, and you can download them directly from there if you wish, but they're also included here in the course files for your convenience. The resources for the cinemagraph project in a time lapse video are from my own camera, and I'll give some basic guidance on capturing those photos in video yourself, but that's not the focus of this course. Therefore, I'll provide you with the images and videos you need to follow along with the lesson. The course files contain the files you need for each project. Keep in mind that the projects are cumulative. So each lesson will continue with the file that was completed in the previous lesson. That means that the source file for each lesson represents the end state for that lesson. So go ahead and download the source files, launch Photoshop, and let's get started with our first project. That's where we take a look at the video features that are in Photoshop. We explore the interface a little bit. And we talk about the basic video editing capabilities of the program.
