    Photoshop CS3 to add video effect
    My goal is to keep all the video B & W except my main subjects. To do this frame by frame is labor intensive & if there's a way to accelerate the process that would be greatly appreciated.
    As of now I copy the layer, rename the copied layer to "B & W" (it's still has color as of now) & rename the original layer 1 to "COLOR". Then make B & W work layer, add an adjustment B & W layer above it & the Merge Down adjustment B & W layer to B & W layer. So, now I have 2 layers, B & W (now is B & W) & COLOR.
    I can now erase from the B & W layer to expose the color below. But, this is frame to frame @ 30 fps x a lot of frames! Just wondering if I'm going at this wrong & if there's a better method?
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks

    You shouldn't be using an image editor for Video effects.
    Try something like After Effects to achieve your desired result.

    Yes, CS3 is slow but will do the job & doesn't cost a grand. I guess you gotta pay to play!
    Thanks anyway.

    The only other way I could imagine how to do this is that there are some tricks one could use with final cut express to do that type of effect (FCE is $199 unless they've dropped the price on it) - if you do a search for Final Cut Express and Sin City effect or Pleasantville Effect you'll find info on it and see if it's something that would be worth investing in.

    That's exactly what I'm trying to do (Sin City effect or Pleasantville Effect). Thanks, I'll check it out.
