Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using synthesized edges, part of After Effects Guru: Tracking and Stabilizing Footage.
…For the most part,…in order to fill the frame, I've been scaling the clips up after stabilization.…However, after effects can use technology to synthesise new pixels.…If the frame is mostly organic content or…a very variety of patterns rather than a strong repeating pattern.…What you'll see is that After Effects can often fill it in.…However, there are some limitations to using these synthesized edges.…In this case, I've already cached some of the frames.…So if you take a look at the warp stabilizer VFX,…I've already performed the detail analysis.…
If we look at stabilize only, you'll see that with this handheld shot.…As we walk up these physical stairs that are rough and…uneven, I'm getting a lot of vibrations.…I was not using a steady cam unit, and it's difficult to know what to track.…Plus, the ropes that people are holding, are vibrating as they pull on them.…What I can choose is Stabilize > Synthesize Edges.…Now when you do this, you need to put an input range in.…This is how long it's going to look.…
