Mercalli is just stabilizing software...look up prodad...much faster and better than adobe version...but pricey....both plugins for AE and stand-alone available...not convinced so far with their gopro version....åå
never mind...I usually just run all my samsung mobile vids which are hand-held through the stand-alone, but it doesn't let you save project files...lose quite a bit of resolution at say 20-40% on bog-standard settings, but at 10% it's not too bad. Given that it's a mobile h.264 file to begin with...
In the stand-alone, you can also only save to h264 in low, medium, or high quality..no idea about bitrate. But the stand-alone is sooooo!!! much faster than the plugin in AE or AE's own warp stabilizer. Of course for clients, maybe go the warp stabilizer...but for casual things, mercalli all the way! The beast told me so (weell 32 threads told me so!)...Edited by squidman - 9/16/13 at 7:36pm
