I have been trying to stabilize footage without success, I have followed as per the Manual by trying to track motion first of all. However I need to track stable footage in the first instant, I tried cropping out the bottom of the footage so that I had something stable to track, however AE eventually crashes. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Thank you David my footage was that of a Friend and was very shaky, it would be nice to steady it. I will look into the SynthEyes Program you mention. Most programs I have come across tend to degrade the footage.
