    Incorporate Stabilization in "Frame Flex"

    Hello

    I am relying on stabilization more and more on a daily basis.

    It would be fantastic if you could incorporate stabilization in frame flex.

    Obviously that way you could stabilize the footage with-out going soft due to auto scaling, provided the resolution of your raw footage is greater than that of the format you are cutting in.

     

    Thanks!

    At the moment Frame Flex functions in real time.  Adding stabilization to it would absolutely guarantee that you would have to render or mix down every shot that had Frame Flex applied.

    Do you still want it?

    Not a bad idea though - why throw away pixels you want in the stabilised shot?  Suspect that a complete rethink on the way media is used in the timeline is the answer.

    Absolutely!

    Rendering is part of the game.

    If rendering became a mandatory part of the workflow with Avid I suspect that it might be the final straw as far as I was concerned.  There are other NLEs.

    I agree with you John, but a Frameflex that allowed you to stabilise the shot, then crop it would make so much more sense.

    +1  This is the way it should have been implemented originally.
