I think it's amusing that you are looking for a stabilization tool, while on other forum messages they are looking for a shaky camera tool. I personally would go with the stability. But then I don't do any real action shots.
My wife is the only shaky camera tool I need :-)
seriously... The Mercalli plugin will steady or ADD shake. There are limitations (apply+render time for one) but it works really well for those shots that are to good to bin despite the shake. Better than Steady shot imho
I, too, prefer Mercalli to the SteadyMove plug-in.
NEW VIDEO TUTORIAL at www.eventdv.net:
"prefer Mercalli to the SteadyMove "
But both of them obsoleted in the next release of CS4?
Mercalli works after a fashion with CS4. It will only work with untrimmed clips, and the results are not good - it does stabilise, but it plays havoc with levels, saturation, etc. Pro-Dad produced a service pack way back in November 2008, but since then all has been quiet.
SteadyMove will install, provided you direct it to the En_US plug-ins folder, but it does not work, and the unlock key does not work either. Those of us who bought this have had a raw deal from 2d3, who simply abandoned development after Premiere CS2. Amazingly they are still expecting to sell it at a price which equates to several hundred pounds!
