I am processing videos from the Sony FDR-1000V camera.
With a 120-degree FOV it doesn't distort much but you still see it.
Vegas has a Distort plug-in which enables one to do a crude correction, but it isn't a proper barrel correction to match what the lens actually does. So e.g. here
you can see I managed to get the horizon fairly straight, until one is banking and then it gets curved at the L and R ends.
There are plug-ins for some other video editors but given the learning curve I prefer to stay with Vegas which at least seems to be bug-free and has far more features than I can use
There are also standalone apps e.g. Mercalli ProDAD. Vegas actually contains the stabilisation portion of ProDAD but not the lens corrector. However I would prefer to not use a standalone prog because I am shooting at 1080P (50fps 50mbits/sec) and rendering to 1080P so don't want to waste more data than is necessary. Already, I am cropping stuff around the edges in Vegas because the Distort corrector inevitably introduces some pincushion and thus some dark bits around the edges.
Many thanks for any pointers.
Maybe I should shoot at 4k, to produce 1080P videos with lens correction? The Sony camera doesn't stabilise at 4k but my camera mount is fairly rigid
BTW I am still on winXP-32 (due to specialised apps) but I am building a new PC, 6-core i7-970, which will dual-boot winXP/win7-64 so that would be another option.
