You could setup a custom batch action in photoshop to automate application of the effect to the entire sequence. You'll have to google search for how to do it. It's been awhile since I did it but I know it can be done, it's just finding out where the menu is for the batch actions and setting the options.
Here's how to use Photoshop filters for video.
- Trim your original shot to the desired length in it's own sequence in Premiere Pro and include handles (a few extra frames at the head and tail for editing later)
- Convert your camera original to a production format like Quicktime Photo Jpeg using the Encoder in Premiere Pro
- Open the trimmed and converted movie in Photoshop
- Convert the movie to a smart object in Photoshop***
- Apply Filter Gallery and choose your effect.
- Export (File>Export>Render Video) the movie using the same production format from Photoshop
- Do the rest of your editing in Premiere Pro or use AE to do the rest of your compositing
That's it. I've done it many times.
*** This won't work unless you convert the movie layer to a smart object and don't expect the video file to open quickly in Photoshop or render in seconds. Effect used here: Chrome
cool beans! I had no Idea you could work with video in Photoshop
Hello and thanks for your reply,
I am having some troubles.
1) When exporting the video from Premiere Pro, do you mean to export it as a movie (like Quicktime/ H.264) or as a photo (like JPEG)?
2) How did you "open the video" in Photoshop? because using any of the "open" options under the "File" tab says that the movie is not a suitable format.
3) When I export the video, it is only a still image; as in it is a movie format, but the animation that is supposed to show is not. Thus, it seems to have flattened all of the frames into one.
4) I get the error "No more virtual tiles can be allocated" when trying to use certain filters. Does this simply mean that my computer is running our of disk space (which is true)? If so, would buying an external hard drive help; aside from deleting unnecessary files?
-- Currently, I have tried exporting my video from Premiere Pro as a Quicktime movie. Then in Photoshop, under the "File" tab, I've used "import" > "video frames to layers". It imports as individual frames and layers, as seen in the Timeline (unlike in your examples). Then, I selected all of the layers and "converted them into smart objects" and applied a filter over top. Then I File> Export> Render Video. In the Render settings, is there a difference from using the "Adobe Media Encoder" vs the "Photoshop Image Sequence"?
Below is a screenshot of my project.
Thank you for your time.
Thank you for replying, I will look into "batch actions" if it is needed.

Do not render as a QuickTime H.264, it is a horrible format for the QuickTime container. Use QuickTime JPEG or photo JPEG or JPEG 2000. Photoshop should open a QuickTime if you are on a recent version. Looks like everything else is OK. Number two is smart object and your filter and render to video. It's about a zillion times faster than batch processing frames.
thank you thousand of time !
it's a huge short cut to convert into dynamic object !
shame they don't code the artistic filters for Ae
we can now deal with it
