Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Choosing between no-motion and smooth-motion methods, part of After Effects Guru: Tracking and Stabilizing Footage.
…To start, let's go with the easiest type of stabilization,…one where there is no motion in the shot.…This original clip had motion.…If I preview that, you'll see the jitter and the shake.…By turning on the Warp Stabilizer VFX, and…from the Result Category, I could choose, No Motion.…For now, I'll leave the default of subspace warp selected, but…later we will explore these methods in detail.…When I preview this, you'll notice that all of the details in…the shot become locked off, essentially 100% stable.…
The reason why the shot had to enlarge,…is that it needed to get bigger to hide the black border.…For example, if I tell it to only stabilize, which is generally used for…informational purposes,…you can see just how much the shot is moving around within the frame.…In order to remove those black bars you could either manually adjust the scale…with the additional scale property or try one of the other methods.…Such as stabilize and crop which gives it a clean black border across all the edges.…
