Just to clarify things... the stabilizer bundled in Vegas Movie Studio is NOT the NewBlue stabilizer. It is based off of Mercalli.

If anyone is interested, Mercalli recently released version 2 of their stabilizer ($200) and reports so far are very good.

Mercalli V2

Take note Mecalli V2 does not work with any VMS versions. It only works with Vegas Pro.

Welp the Vegas Movie Studio Mercalli stabilizer worked great cept that it cropped my video down in size so about 20% of the outer frame was lost. I had to remove it. The NewBlue stabilizer seems to distort too much too. Course this probably is my inexperience with the features too....but I've only a limited amount of time to to get workable workflows down...

My test footage has lower 3rd and after destablized, the lower 3rd gone. So it is best not to have any text on it if you gonna destablized it. Add any texts afterward.

If it's any help to the contributers of this thread who have had bother with the stabilizer programme of VMS10 Platinum, they may be interested in my findings. I too found that the stabilized clip was very much magnified and couldn,t be used. I had used the selection of Intense analyze and thinking that this was the reason I tried again and selected Hand Held Camera analyze but it made no difference to the amount of magnification. I then noticed that before the selection began a notice asked me if I wanted to create a subclip. I accepted the offer and not only was the time taken to stabilize drastically reduced, the resultant magnification was unnoticable on the treated clip, and while the big shake wasn't completely gone, the treated clip was highly acceptable with almost 100% shake free.

Roy,

<<create a subclip>>

Saw that but had no idea what that meant - did it create a new file? I've read and printed out the help files and they are just not very in depth.

Harry. The procedure I used was to place the clip to be stabilized on the timeline and then copy and paste it onto another track. Click onto the copy clip and select yes to making a sub clip, I chose the general analyze. When finished the stabilized subclip is automatically placed onto the project panel. From there you can drag in onto the timeline. You can of course just select the original clip without making a copy. I make a copy so that I can drag the stabilized copy onto the timeline next to the original and this way I can compare the two clips. You can then save the stabilized clip onto the hard drive and insert into your video when ready by cutting out the original clip and replacing it with the stabilized one. If you stabilize the original clip then no new clip is placed on the project panel but the original shot itself is stabilized. If you are not happy with the result of the stabilized original clip you can de-stablize it. I hope this may be of some help to you.

Thanks Roy,

I'll have to try that. So the subclip resulted in no magnification/cropping?

Harry. There must of been some cropping because that's the way the stabilizer works, but it's not enough to be noticable. Make sure you do not select intense stabilization as that makes heavy magnification.
