    Re: Smoothing pans

    Thank you for this.  I haven't tried your suggested method yet, as was sidetracked last week.  Looking at it, though, and it concerns me because a "split and weld" operation (I just named it such) instantly does not sound like a solution because even if it did work this one time, over time there will be 2-shots that simply won't match.

    NewBlueFX have a stabilizer, which, judging by their promo (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HCubEBFtrw) works over however long & changing the shot is.  Can Avid's in-built do the same?

    Re: Smoothing pans

    Hi,

    With all the talk before even doing it, I just decided to plonk the Stabilizer effect on the footage and see what's what, and I am really happy with the result.  A relatively smooth tilt & pan is now very smooth tilt & pan.  Fantastic.

    A couple of things.  Can anyone point me to a good tutorial that fully explains the Tracking Window and Effects Editor? - see image attached.  Until now it's an automated process, and I feel I need to know what to do for better control.  Also, regarding other effects, say like timewarp and colour correction, what would be the best nesting order?

    Thank you,

    D.

    Can anyone suggest a good nesting order, plus how to manually control the stabilisation process?

    ...plus a good tutorial on the Tracking Window.  I cannot find on Youtube.

    Hi Marianna,

    Thank you for this, though the one tutorial available at your link I've already seen on YT, and while helpful it really doesn't dig into how to manipulate the tracking window.  This is what I'm hoping to get a handle on.  Does the aditional webinar have further info?

    Jerky Zoom-in

    Hi,

    This is a continuation from the following thread, https://community.avid.com/forums/p/199557/894862.aspx#894862

    I have a clip where mid-way I zoom in, but the initial pulling of the camera zoom produces a jerk.  Working with MC's in-built stabilzer, plus the Avid FX and even NewBlueFX plug-ins, I just cannot seem to smooth-out the zoom so that picks up & flows nicely.  How to deal with this?

    Re: Jerky Zoom-in

    It seems like you've been using a number of different tools, working on this a long time without getting the result you want. Is there no way to go re-shoot the shot? Or make a different edit so you don't have to use the part of the shot you aren't happy with?

    Re: Jerky Zoom-in

    Yes, you're right.  It just seems odd to me that a jerky pan can be smoothed out, but a jerky zoom-in cannot.  Without fully appreciating the technicalities, the editing system surely wouldn't know the difference between loss of specifics within shot in one case or the other.  I will retest/reshoot and see if I can get a smooth zoom-in with my manual lens.  This is a tangent, I know, but would you know a good tutorial explaining how best to achieve a good, in-camera manual zoom-in?  I can't seem to find any on YT.  Thank you, DC

    Sorry, but I don't know of any good camera op tutorials. I'm just an editor. Cameras are heavy and you have to go outside.

    Maybe try a really high resolution pair of still shots from a Dslr camera and then pan and zoom to taste?
