BetterStabilizer (Software Review) by Mark Bremmer

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

In doing some due diligence for this article, I came across several folks who use BetterStabilizer on multicam footage and simply adore the plug-in, even though they have other solutions available. Why? The simplicity of the plug-in versus the results, and the fact that you can simply drop BetterStabilizer on a clip as you would with any other effect. Specifically cited were cases of interviews with a non-stablized camera doing a head-shot. Both the background and subject had some level of motion that the plug-in was very good at fixing. Plus, the fix required no fiddling with extra controls as with some other solutions.

fcpx logoApple just released the latest major upgrade to Final Cut Pro X 10.3.

There are lots of new features in this version.  Larry Jordan has looked it over and shares what he has learned on his blog here.

Here’s an excerpt:

KEY NEW FEATURES

Apple’s marquee features for the software include:

  • A redesigned interface
  • Improvements to the Magnetic Timeline
  • Support for wide color gamut Rec. 2020 video (the color space portion of the HDR spec)

Within those three categories are literally dozens of changes.

From my point of view, the interface changes are the most visible, the changes to Roles and the Magnetic Timeline are the most significant and its support for Rec. 2020 video the most future-oriented.
