Warp Stabilizer in After Effects CS5.5 – fix your shaky footage!

by planetmitch3 Comments

Have some shaky footage you need to fix? Warp Stabilizer in After Effects CS5.5 might just be the fix you need. First brought to our attention by Maik Thomas who wrote this article “MY FIRST TEST WITH THE NEW ADOBE CS5.5 WARP STABILIZER” and today we've seen some other samples that look pretty impressive.

Today, we saw David Aldrich post about his sample footage shot with the dreaded iPhone (just kidding – this looks great!)

Best results I've had yet with the Warp Stabilizer. Too bad the footage isn't in HD. It was shot hand held from a Paraglider.

Wow, this is looking pretty good! Thought you'd like to try it out if you have After Effects CS5.5

  1. This is huge! That after footage looks amazing.

    I’m bummed because I recently bought 5.0 and there isn’t a free upgrade or even a discounted upgrade to 5.5.

    C’mon Adode. Take care of your customers.

  2. Interesting but I still see major warping with the image in the first shot, which at 1080p is really noticeable, so it’s close but yet so so far away from producing something that is useable.

    It’s a massive pain in the neck trying to smooth out 5D run and gun footage, there is just so much microshake that affects the image, which when combined with the rolling shutter effect is just brutal if you are after pro results. I wish there was a product that could do it but in all my tests I’ve yet to see any software that can truly fix shakey+rolling shutter effected footage that is shot on non-Canon IS glass. I’ve just reached the conclusion one has to use a tripod or a steadicam, it’s just unfixable.
