In addition to importing existing video or image sequences into a composition, you can create documents from scratch; create or import artwork, photos, and other elements to be animated; and export your animations in the video formats mentioned earlier in this chapter. You can also move your Photoshop files with video and animation information between video applications like Adobe Premiere and After Effects. Read on to learn how to prepare images for video.
To create a new document using standard video presets, choose FileNew, and select Film & Video from the Preset menu (see Figure 26.3). From the Size menu, you can specify the format that your video is destined for, and Photoshop applies the correct pixel dimensions, frame rate, and aspect ratio to your file.
