It looks like they're trying to reinvent After Effects with the new video editing features. What's the point? Why would I want to edit video in Photoshop when we already have After Effects and Premiere?

Question for Andrew: Do you plan to support PS 6's video features with plugins and/or tutorials?

I think an advantage of editing video in Photoshop is the ease (if Photoshop is your thing). Personally for me I might find color correction "easier" or "better" in Photoshop rather than using some of the tools in AE or even Premiere.

As the link hasn't been posted yet - http://labs.adobe.com/

As wrcousert said ... Video? WTF? Why? Unless they're planing on ditching Premiere Elements, perhaps?

Oh well, be fun to play with I suppose.

Amazing, I can't wait 2 use it, it's obvious they focused on time saving tools
To be honest I think they should've put animation into photoshop instead of video editor and
video editor in flash cs6 to me that would make more sense..

As far as video goes, you have to remember that us video guys are far from the only ones using Photoshop. With video-capable DSLRs these days, you have a lot more "traditional" still photographers dabbling in video, and chances are good that if you're a still photographer, you only have Photoshop and Lightroom on your computer, not the whole suite. Obviously, if video is your full-time gig, you're going to be using Premiere and After Effects, but for the other guys/gals who don't want to purchase hundreds of dollars in video editing software that they'll only use occasionally, it's nice to be able to do both still and video with the software that they already have.

Anyway, super excited for CS6! I'm still running CS4, and I can't wait to start taking advantage of 64-bit and the Mercury engine. Plus, SpeedGrade and 3D camera tracking? It's gonna be epic!
