I have been using After Effects 5.5 [AE] for a while and this is about Warp Stabilizer is After Effects CC [Ae]. Yes Warp Stabilizer in [Ae] is about 3 times faster that [AE] and also offers some very good added features. Sometimes you need the added features, other times you do not.
But did you know:
While you cannot run multiple instances of [AE] or [Ae] on a single computer, if you have [AE] and [Ae] both installed, you can run both of them on a single computer because they are separate programs. So now you can do two things at once including Warp Stabilizer.
Yes, both Warp Stabilizer and the 3D Camera Tracker run as separate, external processes that send their results back to the main After Effects application when they're done.
Regarding the speed improvements: You say that you've noticed a 3x speedup. We've found that the speedup varies a lot depending on the characteristics of the footage being processed, so I wouldn't count on it being 3x in all cases. I think that our marketing materials ended up saying that the speedup was ~80% (so nearly a 2x speedup) across all of our various tests.
Thanks Todd for making that correction. I had the [[Ae] is about 3 times
faster that ] highlighted Blue to change it, but for some reason I
must have unhighlighted it and forgot to make the need correction before I
posted. At least I did say and about means 0 to ∞ correct? Anyways I
am glad that you caught my error.
