Join Chris Meyer for an in-depth discussion in this video Warp Stabilizer VFX in After Effects CC, part of Premiere Pro and After Effects: Enhancing Production Value.
…Although the work stabilizer is pretty cool, it does not work on every shot.…For example, in this case, we have not only a…moving camera, but also a moving actor inside this scene.…Now what Premiere Pro is doing is looking around the scene saying.…Hey, let's track features in here, use that to…reverse-engineer where the camera is, and smooth out that motion.…It needs solid, stable, non-moving objects in the scene to track, to…get a good idea of where they are from frame to frame.…
They have them through the wall, the lamp, the laptop.…However, this human being who's warbling around in the…scene is not stable, no judgment on his character.…And that's going to throw warp stabilizer off.…I'll select the clip.…Go into effects.…Apply warp stabilizer.…Allow it to do the analysis.…It keeps you updated inside the effect's control panel.…Stabilize it.…Return to the start.…Play it back, and you see that we are in a fun house.…I'm going to go ahead and type, O, to set the end of my work area.…Turn on Looping, just so you can enjoy…
