Thread: Stopping huge border when stabilizing video in After Effects CS5.5

  1. #1

    Question Stopping huge border when stabilizing video in After Effects CS5.5

    First off, a screenshot is here: http://i53.tinypic.com/dziex1.jpg

    Ignore the 1609x1020 resolution of the screenshot, I have a non-1080 resolution 22" monitor.

    How can I stop the huge border after stabilizing the video in After Effects 5.5?

    The original video I am using is 1920x1080.

    I am using the following settings:

    Stabilization result: Smooth Motion
    Stabilization smoothness: 50%
    Stabilization method: Position, Scale, Rotation
    Borders framing: Stabilize, Crop, Auto-scale.
    Borders additional scale: 100%

    I have tried...

    Stabilization result: Smooth Motion
    Stabilization smoothness: 50%
    Stabilization method: Position, Scale, Rotation
    Borders framing: Stabilize Only
    Borders additional scale: 100%

    ... but although there is no major border any longer, there is still a smaller, moving border.

    Any ideas?

    I am happy to render to 720p is that helps. That should also help avoid the amount of zooming After Effects needs to stabilize, yes?

    Many thanks!

    You can't.

    because the stabilisation has caused the frame to move around in relation to the border.

    You need to crop the picture - by zooming in.
    If you're at 1920 res then you have some latitude to do this before too much degradation.

    Not how much I shake at 30x zoom :P

    Cheers for your help
