Naturally Dave, you have no need for this sort of software now that you own a camera stabilizer...right???!

Good memory, Charles.
I wish I could say it were true. Unfortunately
there has been an unexpected production
delay. I have paid for it, but after some time
had passed I inquired on the status and was
informed of this delay. No ETA at this
point.
I didn't think you'd catch me with
my hand in the steady software
cookie jar over in this forum. : - ))
Must say that this software is far from
a substitute. A fair amount of artifacting
is involved. Straight-on moving-ahead
shots aren't bad. But panning shots on the
other hand ....
And all shots take a resolution hit.

A SteadyMove type job is really just a reverse track and it can be usefull to know that 2D3 does the best tracker technology available to buy commercially in this world (out side of what's beeing done in the Israeli air force R&D).

For what it's worth, I just edited a two-cam shoot
where one of the cams was SteadyHanded.
Looked so-so in the editing suite, but viewed on
a TV the SH footage just wouldn't fly so we had
to go with the shots from just the one cam, even
though the "content" of the other cam was better.
The SH footage looked all wavy, as if it were
being viewed through a window
with rain running over the pane, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, Charles, you know I'll be back with
commentary on the rig, once it gets in.

It would be interesting to see how SteadyMove worked with your shot. Anyway of testing it? I'd be willing to run it through steadymove it u wanted to put a bit of your shot on an ftp site.

Let me know

Rich, SteadyMove is Mac only, right?
I have about three 15-second segments that could
use some stability. Two were tele shots zoomed from
a distance, and one is where the cam itself is
"flying". It would be good if we could post the
before and after, comparing both the SteadyHand
and SteadyMove programs. Anyone know how we
could work this out? I don't have a place to
post but I could provide the original clips
and the SteadyHand-processed "after"
clips.

Jean-Philippe,
That would be nice. Do you have an interest in
these steady programs or are you just helping
out? Do you have any idea what is the maximum
file size you can get by email?
And Rich, are you game? What is your max file
size for email.
I guess I'd mail the originals and the SteadyHanded
clips to Jean-Philippe. Then I'd send Rich the
originals, he could run them through SteadyMove
and email that to Jean-Philippe.
How's that sound?
