Premiere Pro CS5--Video Stabilizer

May 23, 2010 6:56 AM

I am new to Premiere. Just purchased and installed CS5. I will be doing a lot of hand holding of the camera with nature and need a good stabilizer program. I found one called ProDad that looks good but not yet working on CS5. They say it will be release the end of this month and if so that may be a good solution. But there must be more to compare.

 

Anyone know of another solution. I am just not steady enough to hand hold the camera and not fix it.

 

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

    Since PPro CS5 is 64bit, all plugins must be rewritten

     

    You'll just have to wait until the various vendors complete that task

    You didn't say whether you have just Premiere or the entire Production Suite CS5. If you have the Suite, After Effects has both a built-in stablizer plug in and a free standing tracking program (mocha AE) that will also do clip stabilization.

    This is a software plug in suite from Boris FX: http://www.borisfx.com/after_effects/bccae/  Third bullet from the bottom under "Key Features for After Effects Users" is what should work for your needs. These plug ins also install in PPro, even though they only mention AE. I use it and will be upgrading when I finally migrate up to CS5. If you just want the motion stabilizer, I believe that is possible for a lower price. The trial version is fully functional for 14 days. Continuum Complete 7AE was just released and is 64-bit/CS5 compatible.

    Yes, I use BCC within PPro. Sounds like you'll still be able to do the 14-day tryout with the working stabilizer in CS5.

    Just to update this post, AfterEffects CS5.5 has the warp stabilizer.  Works really good.

    It might be worth checking out Mocha.  It's a pretty powerful tracker.

    ProDad Mecalli V2 Pro (Adobe listed as an approved plug-in) available as a trial download, works exceptionaly well in PP 5.5.2 used it for 5 months, but, you will need to render, but it is very fast and it will work on all versions going back to PP 1.5.1 as well as Premiere Elements 4>.

     

    CS6.1 has the Warp Stabilizer included ,(previously in After Effects as an extra), but, have not used it
