How does Warp Stabilizer work?

You can fix shaky video in Premiere Pro with the Warp Stabilizer effect. It removes jitter caused by camera movement, making it possible to transform shaky, handheld footage into steady, smooth shots.

How do I make my Warp Stabilizer smoother?

Click the “Stabilization” arrow and change “Smoothness” from 50% to 5%. This reduces the smoothing that Warp Stabilizer will attempt to apply to your clip, and while it will result in a slightly more shaky shot, I find that my shots often don’t need that much smoothing.

How do you stabilize a clip using warp stabilizer?

Does Warp Stabilizer work better in After Effects?

The warp stabilizer is going to be your best bet when you need to stabilize motion in After Effects.

What is stabilization in editing?

It takes tracking points on your screen and moves the image around, slightly cropping the edges (if you shoot in 1080p and export in 720p then you would have some wiggle room while editing, no pun intended). You can see how it works by changing your framing from “stabilize, crop, auto-scale” to “stabilize” only.

How long does Warp Stabilizer take?

The Warp Stabilizing effect processing when first added runs for a long time, eg. it can take 5 to 7 minutes to stabilise just 1 minute of video. The stabilization process zooms and crops the footage, and so you need to have some “headroom” above people in a clip, or else it can crop and chop their heads off….

Why does Warp Stabilizer take so long?

You apply Warp Stabilizer by dragging it onto a clip. Once you do this, the tool launches instantly and analyzes the footage. It takes some time, depending on the duration, frame rate, and resolution of the footage. For example, 4K footage has more data than 1080p, so it will take longer to analyze.
