Occasionally a transition can interfere with the shake reduction.
One easy solution is to apply the shake reduction and then use Export & Share along with the Work Area Bar to output a video based on this clip. Replace the clip on the timeline with the output clip.
Which Export & Share option you choose, of course, depends on your project settings.
The stabilizer needs to re-calculate when adding a transition as new frames are added (handles or no handles).
Gathering from your advice the stabilizer has known issues?
Does your project settings match the footage.
I have seen strange behaviour when the footage is not of the same framerate as the timeline.
I´m shooting in 1080p at 25fps on a Canon 6D using IPB. The project I used is "DSLR-1080p-DSLR 1080p25" so I am assuming this is correct. Like I say sometimes it stabilises, I´ve tried stabilising both before and after adding transitions. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.
I also tried stabilising both clips either side of the transition and then applying stabilisation. I´ve also tried adding transitions and then applying stabilisation. 9 out of 10 times the stabilisation completes but the clip remains unstabilised. If I forgoe transitions then it seems to work fine, but that really sucks.
I was considering Steve´s approach as well, but when you have a ton of clips this will be a pretty long winded process unless there is some way to automate it. Not sure if this is something that could be automated in Bridge - I don´t yet know if bridge integrates with APE.
Thanks for your suggestions so far. I really want to get this to work consistently somehow as it seems like a pretty good video editing package.
No you cannot do that in the Bridge and is does not intergrate with PrE.
But you can drag assets from the Bridge into the Project Assets window.
What's this IPB?
IPB or ALL-I are compression methods. ALL-I is better quality but produces larger files. IPB is a good compromise of quality and file size
