Don't! :) My remark about no one reading the agreement was aimed at myself: Not having read it at install time, I had to go through hoops to find the answer.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I have Mercali Pro V2 Stand alone as well as the Vegas and Pinnacle Plug-ins Installed on both my Desktop PC as well as my Laptop..No issues during installation with the provided license....I believe they allow you the to install it on more than one machine since lots of us work on our projects from our desktop as well as on the go using a Laptop..

The test video I posted to YouTube (see message #9 in this thread) used the rolling shutter fix.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I purchased the Mercalli,

In the past I always bought the disc version.

I received the key from DJ.

do I down load a demo and then put in the Key? Or does prodad send me a link?

I tried the Demo way but can't find where to enter the key!! I must be impaired?

thanks

Oh yea, I want to use it in edius too, is that possible

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Dale, DJ will send you an email with several links in it.

Download links are for Apple Final Cut Pro & Adobe Premier Pro CS5 Mac, Windows 32-bit NLE, Windows 64-bit NLE Plug-ins (Premier Pro CS5 & Vegas Pro 9/10), Unlocked Pinnacle Studio 14 and Mercalli V2 Pro SAL Standalone Application for Windows only.

Sorry but no Edius so you'll have to use the Standalone version for it.

Clicking on the link downloads a very small exe which you run to download and install Mercali on your computer.

The standalone link installs Mercali as a separate app.

I had to get them (ProDAD, not DJ) to send me new serial numbers as the first set didn't work but ProDAD U.S. (Charlie Fulton) was very quick to respond.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I went to the links and the only download are the Demos, I downloaded but can not figure out where and how place the key to get them out of Demo mode. I went to help and the directions there seem to be if you download from a disc.

how did you guys do it?? I must be thick!!???

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Dale, here's the (almost) exact email I got from DJ once I ordered Mercali.
Hopefully you got the same thing.
As said, I clicked on the appropriate link, downloaded the small exe file, ran that, Mercali downloaded and installed and then asked me for my serial number.
I entered that and I was up and running.

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Mike,

Thanks again.

My links just do not work, however I used your links with the new password and now have everything downloaded properly.

I saved a copy of your links with my password to be future proof.

Prodad service was exceptional, just the links which did not work for me, go figure; and, they checked the links before they sent them the second time. Must be this computer!!

I have found mercalli to be a very useful tool, now with the rolling shutter thing it will be even more so!!

I am shooting an ice skating event tomarrow evening with the sony so the rolling shutter fix will be well tested!!!

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I took the plunge and got it. The license key provided by DJ did NOT work for the standalone version, so I called ProDad and got a live person who responded immediately with an e-mail providing the key. Nice.

After trying 2.0 on a range of footage, I think it's just about as 'magic' a plugin as NeatVideo. Wow. I can't believe how nice some of my footage looks after stabilization. 2.0 generally works better than whatever Vegas 10.0 came with. I also used BCC7's optical stabilizer, but that takes a lot of manual work to get anywhere close to what Mercalli does almost automatically.

One of my favorite settings is "Rock Steady Tripod" for shots that are obviously intended to be still. Rock steady is exactly what happens. A downside for me results from my (almost) exclusive shooting in 24p (1/48 shutter): a shaky camera (or subject) can introduce motion blur, which introduces artifacts into the stabilized footage: odd little twitters on fast moving portions of the subject. Higher shutter speed should eliminate the artifacts, or else I live at 1/48 with a slightly less stabilized clip to compensate.

$0.02,
Steve

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

Good evening,

I have been with mercalli for quite some time. I used it often, pro version.

My first efforts were to apply the rolling shutter fix. Two times the computer seized up. I cut clip size down and ran it again. After being exported I could not see a signicant difference.

Can only have a first impression once.

I will experiment more with settings. I have a project that must be done before I can spend time on this. I had hoped to use it on the project, not this time for certain.


I wonder why a rolling shutter is ever installed????

Re: Mercali V2 Pro on sale at Digital Juice

I recently went from Vegas Pro 8 to Vegas Pro 10 and was excited about having stabilization from Mercali built in. We had just started fooling around with the Vegas Pro 10 stabilization and were impressed with how well it worked but did not like how much it affected the framing of the shots.

I had read that Mercali's updated v2 of the sotfware was much better so I took the plunge and bought it with this half off sale. My partner has used it on one project so far and is very impressed. She showed me one shot where there was a bad "stumble" in a panning shot and Mercali v2 completely smoothed that out.

We have not had a reason to try out the rolling shutter fix but am glad we have it since we shoot with a CMOS camera. I may even be brave enough to shoot at 24p again if this really will fix the "jello" effect.

A very useful software package and worth the money in my opinion.
