    Warp Stabilizer

    Ann Bens Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      After a while the warp stabilizer effect looses it stabilization. I cannot pinpoint when.

      Unfortunately you can't see in the timeline which clip has the effect, as all the clips have CC.

      I have to go through the whole timeline and press Analyze for all the clips that have the effect.

      Anyone else?

          Not I... If you can get a poratble, repro-able case (like a small file that makes it happen every time), pleas send it my way.

           

          If you delete the render files, the timeline render bar should go red for warp stabilizer whenever it's not yet fully analyzed and applied (even if it is an accelerated effect for you). Is that the case?

            I will see if I can setup a project.

            The bar stays yellow and there is no blue bar for the clip, as you can see.

            Even when rendered files are deleted, bar stays yellow.

            Graphicscard is the gtx285 driver 310.90.

              OK, I thought that might be the case. It still thinks the effect is already applied evene though you're not seeing it, so you won't be able to use the rennder bar as a way to tell you which clips have lost the effect. If I can repro your case I will log a bug for you.

                It is not just one clip but several other clips in the timeline that have Warp applied to have lost stabilization.

                Well I hope you can reproduce, cause this is kind of a hassle.

                  Ann,

                   

                  If I were you,  I wouldn't waste my time with Adobe's warp stabilizer.  Get Mercalli's stabilizer.

                  http://www.prodad.com/home/products/video_optimization/300391667,l-us.xhtml

                   

                  I really like PP 6.0.3 but certain tools need improvement.

                   

                  I had 3 hrs. of NASCAR race video  to stabilize that was shot as very extreme telephoto settings.  Mercalli ripped through it like a hot knife going through butter.  No project bloat, no problems for 3 hrs. of video.

                   

                  I did a short 10 second test.  Mercalli took 7 seconds and Adobe's warp stabilizer took 156 seconds. Plus, Mercalli has different modes, like glide camera, rock steady camera that make a big difference depending on what you shot.

                   

                  It's $249, but if you value your time it is well worth it.  I have no association with ProDad - just a happy user.
