I've recently upgraded from CS5 to CS6, and have been seriously impressed with a few test renders on shaky footage using the new Warp Stabiliser effect.
However, a question springs to mind in relation to a multi-clip project (at least 24 to 30 seperate clips) I am putting together.
Am I better off taking each clip and making it its own project - then stabilise it, and render it out as a stabilised clip to THEN be used in my main project (So there is no need to stabilise anything in the main project, it's already been done)?
Or should I just put the project together using the shaky clips and apply stabilise to those clips that need it?
I only ask because it's likely I'll be rendering the main project several times as I play about with things to get it right (who doesn't ) and in my mind it makes sense to pre-stabilise the clips before I use them in the project, to cut down on rendering times for the main project?
Or should I just do all the stabilisation in the main project?
In short, is it better in the long run to pre-stabilise any shaky clips and render them as high as possible for further use, or just stabilise within the main project (which will probably end up being rendered several times as I experiment)
Thanks in advance
That many stabilized clips have the potential to make the project file quite large and unwieldy. It may be better to stabilize each clip and export out an Intermediate for use in the main project.
That's exactly what I needed to know, thanks for the reply.
