Anybody a photoshop pro?

I'm wondering what is the most effecient way to import video into photoshop to add effects like the artistic brush filters, and pastel looks etc. I've been told you can import a filmstrip into it, but it's time consoming because you have to apply each effect to each frame. does anybody know a faster way of doing this? I'm using premiere elements 2.0 and photoshop elements 4.0, they have virtually the same amount of controls as the pro ones.

You can run a filter on an entire filmstrip if you particularly want to, although it'll generally take quite a while. The problem with doing this is that if the effect has any spatially-registrable artifacts, they won't be identically registered for every frame, which may or may not be an issue. Also watch that it doesn't start bleeding the grey surround into the actual image data.
I think filmstrip is a really ugly kludge. I wish Adobe would implement Photoshop-style functionality into one of their motion video products so we had a really decent paint-on-frames system with onion skinning and everything. Rotoscoping could be so much easier.
