How to use AfterEffects to correect the Mega-Annoying flicker, produced by the auto-exposure of a camera?
I read that it is possible via the track & stabilize function but the article didn't say anything more than that.
This is what the article says:
AE's improved motion tracker will undoubtedly find myriad uses: to stabilize action footage shot with a long lens; level a seasick camera bobbing at sea; or remove the annoying breathing of the camera iris in footage recorded with auto-exposure. Previously, this footage often had to be discarded. But thanks to AE 6, the white point in a scene can now be tracked and continuously corrected to offset the gyrations of a camera iris attempting to render the world and everything in it as 18% gray.
I don't really understand how is the track & stabilize function used to stabilize the flicker.
Any other methods for eliminating the flicker?
I realize that it is good to shoot with the auto-exposure turned off. It is just that my "camera" is a cheapo HD Aiptek and you can't switch to manual exposure with those.
They don't have an exposure lock too.
