How do I stabilize some pieces of vid clip (that need to contain change of speed)

Jun 22, 2013 10:46 AM

When I add the Warp, the clip turns black, and I can't analyze it. How should I go about stabilzing the clip?

 

Thanks

    Add speed change, nest, then add Warp Stabilizer.

    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

    Results of stabilizing a clip wether its done in Pro or AE depends on the clip itself.

    Warp Stabilizer can do wonders but cannot perform miracles.

    I do think that it's better to stabilise first and then play with time remapping.

    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.

    Then I added the masks, rendered, and I'm dealing with certain spots of the clip that "jumps".

     

    This kind of behaviour you cannot solve with a Warp.

    Look for odd keyframes or bezier keyframes.

    Upload a sample so that we can test. Dropbox is a nice tool for file sharing.

    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...

    You're not alone. See e.g. this discussion on TickTime.cpp-207 error or even this Forum search results.

    Its called nesting as I mentioned in post 1.

    Stabilizer the footage, make movies out of the stabilized footage and use these in your projects

    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.
