Stabilizing a Stop Motion of a Long Walk
on Nov 13, 2014 at 10:15:17 pm

Hi All,

I created a stop-motion video by walking on a long path and taking a photo each step, while having the camera aimed at the same point in the horizon the whole time.

I wanted to acheive a hyperlapse look and gave it a go with the warp stabilizer. It seems to work great for a few seconds but then there is a noticable abrupt jump, and then it continues for a few more seconds.

I have searched and found a few people with the same problem, but did not find a working solution yet.

Is there a way to make this work? If not, what other techniques can I use to stabilize my footage?

Thanks!

you can try other warp settings too. not all work for every method.

also deshaker - a virtualdub plugin is free and works really well

Chris links to a useful page with tons of info.
The legacy stabilizer (uses the point tracker) that comes with AE might work too: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/tracking-stabilizing-motion-cs5...
