How to stabilize wobble on a jib shot?
on Nov 13, 2015 at 8:16:39 pm

I'm compositing a street sign into a jib shot so that the jib rises up the signpost and reveals the sign. The Foundry's Camera Tracker did a great job tracking the shot, but since the sign is so close to the camera, it reveals a (previously insignificant) wobble in the upper part of the jib movement. The director wants me to remove this wobble, so the sign looks steady, but I cannot get any of my tracking programs (AE, FCP 7, Mocha, Motion) to deliver a cleanly stabilized shot without jitter - which looks bad and drives Camera Tracker crazy.

Any tips? I'm currently running AE CS5.

Rather than stabilizing the jib shot, you might try adding the bit of wiggle to that sign. If they match up, how's the director going to know? And it would be a lot easier.
