Stabalizing shakey Jib Shot

I've got a jib shot in a film I'm working on at the moment and it has a bit of shake at the end. I've tried using the stabilize feature in AE but it hasn't worked that well, it just seems to make it even more jittery.

Here is a link to the shot:

hi, i've been using Warp Stab a lot lately and i've found it to be a tempermental beast. Sometimes its works really well, other times it sucks, and thats on the same clip!

I found that you need to fiddle with the settings a lot. In the Warp's settings make sure you have "Smooth Motion", and try turning up the smoothness from default 50% to say 70%.
your "method" needs to be "subspace warp"
"framing" is whatever suits your needs.

Also, try experiemnting with just a dozen or so seconds of footage as Warp can take a long time to calulate the changes.

Hope that helps, Jon

And, if all the tweaking in the world won't fix it (even though it should), you could always try the legacy stabilizer.

I was able to get a good result on your clip with the Warp Stabilizer by using the Position, Scale, Rotation method for the stabilization.
