John Reispoorly stabilized pan
by on Apr 2, 2012 at 1:55:11 am

So I have a bunch of pans, that come out looking very 'stagey', the pans are not smooth, like the tripod was grabbing as the camera man panned.

Can I fix this with Lock and Load. Ive never used the Lock & Load for something like this, and Im nervous the footage might be unusable.

FCP Tracker seems to do a decent job, but not quite, so not good enough either. So far Lock & Load is not working as well,

Hello,

yes, you can stabilize panning motion with Lock & Load.

Regards, Eberhard

Is there a settingI don't know about? So far FCP does a much better job, and Lock & Load makes it worse. Advice would b helpful

There's no particular setting for panning motion. What is the exact problem?
Can you please upload a demo?

Eberhard

The speed of the pan is uneven and jerky, Ive only used the plug in to steady handheld shots. This is diferent

I would need to see your video before I can tell what might be the problem.

We're not trying to be difficult but we can't really help you with the info you've given. I stabilise pans all the time with Lock & Load and they work.

If yours doesn't work theres something unique about the codec or the sequence settings, if we see the footage we can try and help you. Check your sequence settings in particular, Lock & load gives bad results if you set the wrong field dominance and FCP gets confused by some codecs and gets the field order wrong (thinks there is field where there isn't)

Without seeeing your footage we can't be more specific than that

No, the reason that Lock & Load is not working properly could be the codec setting could be many things, but we can't help you because you won't give us enough information.

You apply Lock & load and it smooths the clip, there's nothing special for a jerky pan. if it's not working, then something has gone wrong, we need info from you if you want us to help you.

Theres some examples of complex Pans with jerky motion in the latest video here:

Nothing special had to be done to make these work.

For what it's worth, I'm having the same problems. I have several clips that were shot with a slide and I can't remove the jerkiness with any settings in your plugin in an FCPX project. Even using extreme settings, I can't tell any difference. It's not even clear that Lock & Load is doing anything to impact the jerkiness.

Hello,

you should clearly see a difference unless you set stabilization strength to 0.
I assume Lock & Load did track without error message?
Can you please check the system log for error messages from FCP X and send them to me: eberhard (at) coremelt.com ?

Regards, Eberhard
