Chapter 15. Creating Output > Exporting Filmstrip Files

Exporting Filmstrip Files

You can export a clip or any part of the program as a filmstrip file. The filmstrip format allows you to use Adobe Photoshop to paint directly onto the frames of video—a technique similar to rotoscoping in traditional film postproduction. Unlike Premiere, however, Photoshop manipulates files directly. Be aware that the changes you make in the filmstrip file are permanent.

Appropriately enough, a filmstrip file in Photoshop looks like a filmstrip: a single still image that contains the frames of video arranged in a long column (Figure 15.33). A frame number, reel name, and timecode are displayed below each frame. If the frames of the filmstrip exceed 30,000 pixels in height, the frames continue in another column until the file reaches the maximum image dimensions for Photoshop.
