Deliver high production value even with handheld footage using Warp Stabilizer, an innovative technology included in Adobe® After Effects® — the industry standard in motion graphics and visual effects software. With Warp Stabilizer, you can automatically correct uneven camera moves and clean up motion artifacts to craft pristine shots for all of your projects.
In today’s fast-paced production environments you don’t always have access to a dolly, crane, or steadicam. With Warp Stabilizer, you can transform hand-held footage to give it the precise movement and framing that would otherwise require a complicated or expensive camera rig. Use Warp Stabilizer either to smooth the existing motion of a camera or to create a locked-off shot, with no camera movement whatsoever.
Fix the motion artifacts associated with camera stabilization in one clean sweep. Warp Stabilizer processes individual areas in your frames separately to compensate for parallax adjustments. You can choose other modes for stabilizing your footage, too, including perspective, scale, rotation, or the position of your elements. Use pixel analysis for precise repairs: Warp Stabilizer allows you to minimize the zooming that is necessary for stabilizing and reframing your shots.
Correct the “rolling shutter” issues that can arise with modern CMOS sensor technology — including the video-capable DSLRs, which are becoming increasingly popular for creating high-quality motion graphics and visual effects content. Automatically fix skewed images or ripples in your frames with the new Rolling Shutter Repair function in Warp Stabilizer.
Apply Warp Stabilizer to the source layer, and then let After Effects perform the analysis and stabilization for you automatically. Advanced settings allow you to adjust the balance between smoothness and cropping, so you get the results you want. Even on long, complex shots, Warp Stabilizer processes your footage in the background, so you can continue working in After Effects with no decrease in performance.
Control your borders with Warp Stabilizer. Use Stabilize and Synthesize Edges to automatically fill in any blank spaces on the edges of your frames. You can also crop without scaling when that works better for a shot. Warp Stabilizer automates these processes, so you don’t need to spend time on manual keyframing or complex, multistep processes to get your shots looking just right.
