Hi,

Is expected that BCC Optical Stabilizer (in RED5) provides as good as output than Mercalli V2?

Ps.: Both run as Vegas plugins.

Thanks,
Carlos

Hi Carlos,

The short answer is yes. Note that there are two options in RED for image stabilization - you can use the motion tracker based stabilizer (Filters>Motion>Motion Stabilizer) or the optical flow based stabilizer (Filters>Time>BCC Optical Stabilizer). The optical flow based stabilizer (BCC Optical Stabilizer) will deliver the same result as the other filter you mentioned.

I hope this helps.

Peter.

Hi Peter!

Thanks for answering!!!

Should be any recommendation to choose when use either "BCC Optical Stabilizer" or "Motion Stabilizer"?

Bye,
Cadu

Hi Carlos,

I would recommend starting with the Optical Stabilizer - it's the easiest and most straightforward way to handle this job. Just apply the filter, analyze the media and select the options from the Stabilize pop-up that you want. I'd recommend using the Translation + Rotation + Zoom to get a total lock-down. If you just want to smooth the camera move instead of locking the shot, then select Smooth instead of Stabilize from the Mode pop-up. Note that when you use Stabilize, you can set any frame in the clip around which the shot is locked. And if you use Smooth, then you set the range of frames for smoothness.

If you don't manage to get the result that you want from the Optical Stabilizer, then you should use the motion trackers in the Motion Stabilizer.

Cheers,

Peter.

Hi Peter,

Many thanks for detailed explanation.

After testing BCC Optical Stabilizer in comparison to Vegas default stabilize, I could say Boris output is great. Even in "smooth" mode I could achieve a good stabilization better than the heavy Vegas stabilization.

Cheers,
Carlos
