Often I only need to stabilize part of a scene so I just crop the segment to be stabilized. But I want the transition to and from the stabilized segment to be smooth. There is no "timer" so I cannot change the level of stabilization from 0% to 100% over a period of 1-2 seconds. So how do I achieve this?
Really, no responses?
Only because nobody knows how. I don't think it is actually possible. Not in Premiere Pro, anyway.
In the past when I wanted to stabilize a portion of a clip, I'd stabilize the part of it that I needed stabilized and then crop the non-stabilized part in to match the percentage that's scaled and then use the motion settings to sort of move the clip around to match the start or end frame that's stabilized. It's not perfect, but it's fairly seemless. Yeah, it would be nice to gradually de-stabilize something but for now, this is what we do on the rare occasion that we need to do it. Warp Stabilizer in After Effects is a bit more fully featured so maybe there's a way to do it there, I don't know.
