PhotoShop CS5 CS6 Add Lightsaber to Video Clip Add special effect to a Movie
In this project the students will edit a movie clip by adding lightsabers to the movie using PhotoShop. The directions are for CS5. CS6 is almost identical and CC will work but will look a bit different at some steps. This wont work for CS4 as video to layers is not compatible.
This is step-by-step instructions with pictures for how to add the lightsaber effect.
I use a squirrel video and add lightsabers that move with the furry creatures.
Super fun project that many students take to the next level and create great special effect for much longer video clips.
This project is a great one to give to talented and gifted students.
