Working with PhotoShop version 7. I write to inquire if this version has the capacity to do the following:
after you get photoshop cs6-
you can animate scrolling text. here is the link:
how to use video in photoshop:
That's one heck of a jump, and one heck of a price to pay as well, if just for this project. Would Photoshop Elements, or The Gimp (I have never used either) do it? How about a Lite version of a NLE video editor? Premiere Elements perhaps? Or, dare I say it, a none Adobe product.
I guess if the OP is a quick learner, he has 30 days to finish his project with the Trial.
I believe that you have gotten the answer to your question, "... can I add Video in PS ver. 7... ), but to do what you want, though depending on your final delivery, you can do what you want to accomplish in another Adobe program, Premiere Elements. It is a Non Linear Editor (NLE) for Video, and it can marry Still Images and Video very well. The process is referred to as PiP (Picture in Picture). It is also a very inexpensive program, as many Adobe programs go, but offers quite a bit of power. I would explore it.
Should you have any questions about the program's capabilities, there is a very active Premiere Elements Forum, with a lot of knowledgeable people there.
Please be sure to state your desired delivery scheme, as with most NLE programs, there are limitations, once one gets beyond standard Video.
Also, Adobe After Effects, a full-featured compositing program, can do that too, but it is NOT inexpensive, and has a pretty fair learning curve.
Your commentary is welcome because I actually own Adobe Premiere 6.0. I need to produce a conceptual model that does not require the finest of media techniques. Also please know that for now, I superimposed an image on the display portion of a mobile device. If there is a tool that allows one to drag one corner to cover the desired area I don't remember. Your learned counsel would be welcome here as well... An image is included.
I await your reply
Now, I cannot tell you about Pr 6.0 (came on board at 7.0/PrPro 1.0), but I think that you have Corner Pin in the Effects>Video Effects, that should do what you want.
I would recommend posting to the PrPro CS 4 & Earlier Forum, as some Pr 6.0 folk can be very helpful - see you there.
I remember your name from prior posts. It worked. I thank all of the contributors to this thread. One fine point... the bottom edge of the display is slightly curved. Is there a way to fill the bottom corners with the superimposed Image? What I have now is fine but I would want to learn about additional controls if they exist.
Yes I think you can by using a mask on your video since I assume it is on the top layer.
But you could just place it behind the phone with a cutout/transparency where the video is to be displayed.
From last image tho it looks like you stretched the image to fit and the distortion is rather noticeable/undesireable; you can probably crop/size better to get a better quality result.
Truly appreciative of your imput. The distortion is apparent but I am much more interested in gaining competence in the general process at this moment. I am familiar with what the mask does but rarely used it when ver. 7 was new. Could you talk me through this process with at least the first step of the masking if you are able to continue with this thread? There is no urgency to any of this.
