Here is q uote from a very esteemed Adobe employee. It might help you understand what is going on when you use Warp Stabilizer.
There are two phases to the warp stabilizer: 1. Analysis. This occurs once in the background while the blue banner is up to calculate data needed for later stabilization. This is not accelerated. 2. Applying the warp. This occurs during playback and export to do the stabilization. This portion is accelerated.
The warp stabilizer is GPU accelerated in Premiere Pro master collection CS6
Edit the clips into smaller pieces, and only Stabilize the pieces that really need it.
I wish I could!
There is so much shaky footage from leaving the tripods not locked down by accident that in 2 of my 3 cams its the maaority of the time.
What is it footage of?
It's of a pastor seated on a stool delivering his message.
The footage meanders and drifts up and down.
Please, would someone care to reccommend specific warp settings that may be the most helpful?
And you've got three cams of it?
What is moving the cameras?
Or are they handheld?
All I can think of is that my tripods were not completely locked down into position.
They are geting old/worn and I'd replace them if they weren't discontinued.
Know anybody who can repair LIBEC tripods?
What was causing the tripods to move?
This was an interior shoot.
By not completely locked down I mean the fluid heads on the tripods were apparently slighly loose and not screwed in tight allowing them to unintentionally wander.
Okay, so you have three cameras, all on tripods, indoors with no wind, but they are all moving in the same way for 30 minutes.
Were little kids shaking them?
Was there an earthquake?
Even a camer set on a waterbed eill only move if someone jiggles the waterbed.
I think you'd have to see my tripods and their condition in order for what I said to make sense to you.
If something isn't screwed in tight it can move.
Can you post some of the footage?
Don't go buying a CUDA card to speed it up as it won't help much. Warp Stabiliser is just another one of those annoying processes within Premiere Pro that's slow for no obvious reason. Much like displaying thumbnails in the project window and media browser, the warp stabiliser doesn't seem to be able to use the resources you have available.
It's frustrating when you have to wait for a process to complete when it's using 10% of the CPU cycles, not touching over 75% of the free RAM that's available and barely even registering with Disk I/O. I know it's a 'background' process but it would be good to have a 'bring to foreground.. I'm waiting' button sometimes.
Sorry but I don't think there's an easy solution, I would do as suggested and cut the clip up and process it in small chunks, at least that way you can play with settings etc if it's not working out.
