View Full Version : Stablizing 2 Perf DPX footage in After Effects

10 October 2009, 10:10 AM
I am currently trying to stabilize some footage in after effects CS4 to eliminate gate movement from a 2 perf 35mm camera (For a comp), but the resulting footage (DPX Files) is not stabilising very well at all. I have tried using one and two trackers as well as various options but nothing seems to be giving me a decent result. Can anyone recommend a workflow or plugin that may help me better stabilize the footage? I have previously worked externally with Match Mover to stablize footage but don't really want to have to add this to my workflow if I can help it.

Did you tried that directly in AE or in Mocha?

denoise it and then try and track or maybe drop out the blue channel. You should be able to preblur a little beofre tracking and then just apply the data to an ublurred version.

I did not even know mocha existed! I just read the manual and did a track, copied the data and it came out very nicely, even with a slight focus pull. Thanks for the heads up. Looking forward to exploring Mocha some more!
