    Warp Stabilizer warps images on CS6




      I just used the stailizer for the first time yesterday and found that along with stabilizing the shake, it also severly warped the frame.  It was a shot of a straight truss that bends onto an arch as it goes up, but AE warped the floor and building around it to try and keep the truss straight.  Any ideas what I can do to minimize this?  It was pretty severe!

          You should fiddle with the conrols. There are quite a few. Try different methods. There are lots of options but without seeing the footage it's hard to say what will work the best. It's also important to note that not all footage can be fixed.

            Hi Iggy,


            Rick is correct there are lots of controls to change the output.  by default warp stabilizer uses a combination of imaging resizing & cropping in order to achieve the stabilization.  these changes in scaling/croping will change the quality of your image, so unless you are working on very large size footage you'll probably want to export to 1 size smaller format than your footage you are trying to stablize.  (e.g. if your footage is 1080p export it as 720p).


            Hope it helps

              As Rick said, you probably may only want to use position, rotation and scale in your case and handle the rest by other means. The Warp Stabilizer operates based on edges, so almost inevitably it will always try and straighten contiguous edges it finds in any imagery.
