Here is a shot I quickly did with my Canon T2i/550D. I have started to research what other options there are with post-stabilization tools that existed aside from FCP’s smoothcam. Smoothcam is a good tool but has some glaring problems:
1. It analyses the WHOLE clip…not just the segment in your timeline
2. It is very time intensive
3. Lock and Load X is just better at the process
So I found a comment over on CreativeCow raving about Lock and Load X. I downloaded the plugin. It works in both FCP and After Effects, (a standalone PC version would be a great thing.) I was very impressed with it’s speed and flexibility…for 149 usd, well worth the price.
Not all shots can be solved with stabilization tools…but alot can.
I contacted the developer to mention that a standalone version for the gopro Heli RC crowd would be a great addition to his application.
