Hi! Sorry if this has been covered already, but I was wondering what the fastest workflow for wire removal in photoshop would be?
What I've done so far is imported all of my 80 frames (including the clean plate background) as a psd file, each frame as a layer. I've erased out the wire for each frame, but now I have a giant PSD file and I'm not sure if there is a way to batch "Copy Merged" for each layer, and then export them as sequential jpegs.
Is there a way to export these cleaned up frames automatically, or do I have to go down the layers one by one telling Photoshop to "save as" each time?
Thanks for any help you could offer on this!
Ok, on the computer now. Looking at CS5 which is the one I have. I got every word wrong!
In the top right of the screen, in a grey horizontal strip, are the words Essentials, Design, Painting, Photography, 3d, Motion, then What's New in CS5. Essentials is the normal PS, what you want is Motion. Click on Motion to go into that mode.
If I import a QT mov, I get the current image in a big window, and a timeline along the bottom. I can click on the frame I want and see that one, erase a wire, then click on the next frame. I could then export a QT mov of all the modified frames. Next thing is to see if I can import a sequence of still images instead...
No. Go to File Open, Click on the first image and it only loads one. Select them all and it loads each as a separate image. Click on Import, Video Sequence, and I get a message that I can't do that in the 64 bit version, I need to change to the 32 bit version. Try that on yours and see, though.
On mine, it only works if I open a QT mov instead of a sequence of stills. Have to run, can't play with it any more right now.
Cool, thanks for the breakdown, StopmoNick :) I will have to check out how tvpaint works sometime...and fiddle around with this photoshop timeline mode!
