一般正常的 Photoshop filters (blur, sharpen, ... etc.), 沒辦法做到所謂「non-destructive」編修。也就是說,當你對某個圖層加上一個 filter 之後,很難再回去修改那 filter 的參數 (例如減輕或增加 blur 的程度)。Adobe 從 Photoshop CS6 開始,增加 smart filter 的功能, 使 filter 也可以進行 non-destructive 編修。

簡單來講,你首先要將該圖層轉換為「smart object」,然後進行 filter 編修。這時候 filter 自動變成 smart filters.

以下是範例。

首先建立一個你想要 apply filter 的圖層。

smart filter1

滑鼠右鍵該圖層,選取 Convert to Smart Object

smart filter2

也可以直接用選單 Filter -> Convert for Smart Filters ...

smart filter3

選一個你要用的 filter

smart filter4

想要修改 filter 的參數,在 Layer panel 裡,double click 對應的 filter 即可

Create a project

Setup the editing workspace: Window -> Workspace -> Editing

Use the Media Browser tab (located at the bottom left of the workspace) to import video footages or audio clips files

Double click a video footage, it will be opened in the "source monitor" located in the top left of the workspace.

To select just a part of the video footage, drag the "play head" to determine the "mark in" and "mark out" points

Then drag the video (as well as the audio) to the timeline window located in the bottom right of the workspace. A video and an audio track will be automatically created. The video or the audio track can be dragged separated by click and drag the respective button (located at the bottom of the source monitor).

 drag video only

Similarly, you can drag an audio clip to the timeline window, and save it to an audio track

"+" or "-" keys can be used to zoom in/out in the timeline window

You can increase the height of an audio track, then holding the middle line, move it up will increase the volume, move it down will decrease the volume of the audio track.
