Do you have After Effects?
If you do use that, the results in AE are vastly and I mean vastly superior to what Premiere produces.
Have a look on the Creative Cow websites for video tutorials on usising WS, the videos there are better than what is on the Adobe TV site
Do ensure by the way that the sequency settings in Premiere match the 5D
That is a typical result of the stabiliser failing to handle a brief rapid/large amplitude movement of the camera.
The usual settings for stabilisers are a compromise between eliminating motion and limiting "zoom-in".
In this case, there is also probably movement during the time that the shutter is open that no stabiliser can deal with.
Thanks Col. I'll give it a go in AE.
Appreciate the help!
I'll give AE a crack at it.
Also, try switching the "method" in the stabilizer settings to "Position, Scale, Rotation"... 9 out of 10 times I get less wobble and less scaling with that method compared to the default "Subspace Warp" method. Not sure why they insist on making Subspace Warp the default method. MOST of the time, it's not as effective.
Post back if you use AE with good luck. The new VFX is supposed to be great.
