I have been through a few tutorials and I'm starting to get the Stabilize Motion / Track motion features. But I have some footage that was shot hand held, and I still want it to feel hand held, just less. If I stabalize it it becomes rock sollid, except for the perspective shifts. Is there a way to stabilize my plate, and then just dial back the stabilization. I still want some motion in it jsut not as much.
Yes, you just pre-compose your stabilized footage, than use that pre-comp as a layer in the main comp. Then you can copy&paste the tracker keyframes to the position property and invert their values using a simple expression like
There's also an Unstabilize script out there that automates this, so search AEnhancers.com and AEScripts.com.
