Either put the video clip in a smart object and crop, or use a layer mask on the video clip to hide the info, or put a layer above the video clip to block out the info.
I'm sorry but how do you do that? I'm relatively new to photoshop
Hi Melissa. I don't normally use Photoshop for video, but this should work.
Open Photoshop, and create a small image that will cover the text. Make it look like a logo, or solid black, or anything you like. Save it as a JPG and remember the location.
Open the video in Photoshop
At the left of the video layer, (in the timeline) click on the drop down-down, and choose 'New Video Group'.
Select the new video layer, click in the drop-down, and choose 'Add Media'. Locate your JPG and OK it.
Select Move, and move it to cover the text.
Hover over the end of the JPG layer, and drag out to the full length of the original video.
Hi Trevor! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Are you OK with rendering out when done? Easiest is to use one of the media encoder presets like YouTube or Vimeo.
If it is a long video, and file size is an issue, have a look at Handbreak, which can reduce file size significantly with little impact on quality. Note, it won't always work out with highly compressed presets, but it is free, and used by juat about everyone who does this stuff.
It isn't a big file because the video is only a few minutes long. I just exported it
