When I add the Warp, the clip turns black, and I can't analyze it. How should I go about stabilzing the clip?
One of the great things about our activity is that there is always more than one way to get the same result.
I'd stablize the footage in AE then so the speed change in Premiere.
To me warp stabilizer works far better in AE as it is so easily set up to give precisely the result you want
I'm sure someone else will come up with another method
Either way good luck
Makes sense, but the stabilizer acutally makes the clip even more "bouncy" (with no motion default).
Would stabilizing, nesting and then add speed change, give a satisifying result? I'll have to make a lot of changes to do so, would like to hear what you say first first.. (the clips are nested with masks)
The thing is, the movement has been created during edits (Anchor change, transform, track matte, speed change), everything looked good at point. Then I added the masks, rendered, and I'm dealing with certain spots of the clip that "jumps". (I think it happens when the track matte links up with masks, but since everything else looked fine, I figured I could just use the stabilizer later on)
But do you think it's better stabilize, nest and then add speed change?
I'd still stabilize in AE and export, I'd not use dynamic linking, with AE you can get the footage rock steady
Then in Premiere you have a perfectly stable file to work with as you are not relying on multiple processing
But remember you are stabilizing so you will lose some detail as the stabilized footage is expanded to fill the frame so as not to have any black borders so you may have to apply some sharpening either in AE or Premiere
the movement has been created during edits
I'm not sure that's the kind of thing you're going to solve with the Warp Stabilizer. It's designed to work on footage that has unwanted shake or movement from the camera. You might be better off finding where in the edit you inadvertently created the movement and solve that instead.
After several tries, I still can't get it right.
Regardless what I do , the clip either A. Ends up "jumping" right at the beginning of the selected clip, and the end, or B. lot of weird motion within the clip all over.
I've gone back and fourth, changing all that it is to change (all modes under the Warp Stan preferences, changed all the percentages, inputs, ranges -)
I've read up on how I should execute this as smoothly as possible, but did not find an answer that works. I'll go a little in depth hopefully one of you can help me:
A mp4 file (40 min long) (the content is slow moving in itself), I chopped it up to my preferences. Changed speed (a whole lot, above 1000%). Added masks (linked them up with the chopped pieces). As mentioned over, I did notice that there were some shaky movements (which is obviously very easy to see when masks are being used, and when a clip's been sped up).
I then nested the shaky pieces (with the masks), add stabilizer, and things just hasen't worked out yet.. I've also done the process, where I've found the shaky pieces on the 100% original speed tempo. Directly added stabilizer, nested (with the masks), and then changed the speed. Same result.
Any inputs? / / What preferences would you recommend me using in the Warp Stabilizer?
that should make it easy to stabilize right?
If it were easy, you wouldn't come up with your thread, right? It's quite difficult to guess what causes issues without seeing the footage. Hence, it's about impossible to offer proper tool or technique so as to fix it. If you can't share a sample, I'm afraid you're on your own...
I did get this error...
I think I've recognized the issue.
"f you add a mask to a layer that has utilized the Warp Stabilizer you will immediately notice that the mask is not retaining it’s accuracy and sometimes floats around with a really thick mask edge"
To fix this:
"Simply Pre-Compose your Warp Stabilized layer [Cntrl-Shift-C (PC) or Cmd-Shift-C (Mac)], Select the option to “Move all attributes to new composition” and then add your mask to the Pre-Composed layer in your main Composition and wha-la, it is working again."
Can I do this in Premiere, and how? I don't recognize the options.
Thanks, will give out marks...!
Pre-composing in AE equals nesting in PrPro.
If you need to create a complex mask in your master sequence, you can do it with e.g. PrPro Titler and Track Matte Key. See this on how to create a procedural matte in PrPro.
