    Speed up Analyzing for Stabilize Image

    wolverine.ks Level 1

      I'm looking to stabilize more than just a few seconds like is shown in all the video examples.

       

      My 3 minute clip is taking 75 minutes to "analyze" (if i could just stabilize the whole 2 hour thing that would be great too)

       

      but my CPU usage is rarely breaks 25% total

       

      is there a way to allow this feature to use more CPU  or just speed it up in general?

       

       

       

      thanks

          Tell us much more about your computer and your footage.

           

          The Warp Stabilizer effect is extremely demanding on system resources---most notably RAM. You will have difficulty trying to stablize large and long clips on an underpowered computer.

            Ahh, thanks for the quick response.

             

             

            The footage is 3 minutes of short clips, about 10 seconds each, all close ups of people, hand held, most have some panning, few have zooming

             

            I have 2 GB reserved for other applications in the preferences and 6gb available for Adobe CS5.5

              Change the memory reserved for other applications to be a larger amount---say 4GB. The process that does the stabilization is considered "other" in this context.

               

              If you have three minutes of 10second clips, I recommend stabilizing each individually. Not only will this be easier on your computer, but it also just works better, since each clip has its own specific characteristics relevant to the stabilization.
