New version of Coremelt's lock & load
on Jan 27, 2015 at 11:04:27 am

I had some shaky footage and was looking for a better stabilizer than the one built into FCPX. Saw the great demo reel at coremelt and bought the latest version of Lock & Load (v.1.2.1).

I found that Lock & Load was consistently worse than the built-in stabilization and resulted are sudden jerks and pumps, even with relatively stable shots (handheld interviews). It does not seem to work at all.

Does anybody else have issues with lock & load?

I tested Coremelt's plug, the integrated and

This is at the time only working in 7 and Motion, but I found it on most footage far superior to both... it's worth a try, I think.

Cheers, greg

[Georg P. Mueller] "Does anybody else have issues with lock & load?"
No issues here at all. I've found Lock & Load to be better and much faster than the built-in stabilizer. It's also important to note that stabilization is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some stabilizers work better on certain footage than others. I used Lock & Load on a stage performance that I had to shoot hand-held and at one point I jerked the camera slightly when my hand cramped and Lock & Load smoothed it out perfectly. The build-in stabilizer still had quite a bit of shake left in the shot so I used the Lock & Load version in my final edit and no one picked up on it.

I tried it with different cameras, different resolutions (1280, 1920 and 4K), on different computers. I tried tracking areas, all different modes and experimented with the strength sliders. In every single instance the built-in stabilization gave superior results right out of the box. Ah well, moving on and sticking with what I got.
