About This Class


Wouldn't it be cool if there was a program like Photoshop, but for video?
Guess what, Photoshop CAN edit and manipulate video!
In the first part of our series, It's NOT Matte Painting, we're going to add a giant full moon to our video, using simple video compositing.

We'll show you how to:

  • How to Import & Export 
  • Work with Layer Modes
  • Create Layer Masks
  • Blend objects with video
  • and much more…

BONUS : FREE 3D image source, with objects that you can download, and use in your video… even if you DON'T KNOW 3D!
