I am planning to add some stock videos to my (so far) image only portfolio. However I am reluctant to buy one of the expensive pro applications in advance because maybe it is not my thing at all. Instead I would like to know if anyone here uses the new video editing functions in PS6 or PS CC to process his material? If they are enough to do some basic cutting and editing (looks like it to me in descriptions and tutorials) for stock videos that would be a good reason to get PS CC (currently CS5). I have no intention on getting the complete CC package which is much more expensive.

you can do "basic cutting and editing " even using CS4. Good enough for 5 -10 seconds stock footage. But 5 minute clip was already to heavy for my PC (which is a bit old)

You may want to check out the free program Streamclip.  I works well for basic trimming clips to your desired length.  I think there are a couple of detailed instruction messages on the Shutterstock forum, that cover the settings to use.  I have used it for video clips from my Canon 60D.

I also use MPEG Streamclip for clip trimming and converting into the desired codec.
A great, lightweight program and doesn't cost anything.

Whenever I try color corrections in Photoshop my videos end up with strange artefacts, especially in the skies. I have no idea how use shadows/highlights adjustments, how to boost vibrance/saturation or add a grad filter without introducing ugly artefacts in PS...

Therefore most of the time I just stick to MPEG Streamclip.

I have used PS CS6 for video editing. Works quite well. Not doing anything overly sophisticated. However, I find that I need Mpegstreamclip to get the video into proper format for uploading.

That's interesting. I am not into video yet, but am interested. Can you use Steamclip for color adjustments?

Very basic editing in PS. If this is serious I would go for one of the more expensive Pro-applications. In the long run it pays off and sometimes very handsomely.
On a commercial shoot, pop promo or whatever, you find they use these.

This looks like it could be pretty useful for short stock clips that require very little editing.  I haven't tried it myself though, still trying to get myself in gear to shoot more video.

Thanks everyone for the helpful comments. Sounds like Photoshop CC will be a good start, I will also check Streamclip. One reason for Photoshop is that I have a hard time keeping my 5D2 sensor completely clean... So I might need to be able to (batch) remove dust spots in the sky which is not even supported by some of the more expensive tools, but I have already found a tutorial for CS6 explaining how to do this without much effort. Apart from that I think cutting and adjustment layers is enough to get started.

AppGeeker video converter:

i have been using it for a while, mostly to convert to different formats, and resize, but there is also a edit feature (trim, crop, merge, split, add effect, etc.), and should work for what you need. Pretty simple to use.

Thanks for introducing me to this software mate. I recently began to receive requests to shoot a few music videos for some local artists, this should help my transition  along fairly well as I am a beginner.

Has anyone had any problems rendering video from CS6? My videos come out as stills and do not play in Quick Time or at all when I convert to Final Cut Pro.

I'm used to using this method to merger videos: newbielink:http://www.videoconverterfactory.com/tips/merge-videos.html [nonactive], cut videos and add post effecct. It's enough for me to use those basic editor.

What about Da Vinci Resolve? It's free and has everything you need to edit, color correct and export your videos.
