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.

Coremelt Lock and Load just got better

Coremelt Lock and Load just got better

Lock & Load, the fastest and most powerful stabilizer for FCP X, just got even better.

Coremelt has added support to Lock & Load for working directly on multicam clips, batch tracking of multiple clips with one click, and optimised support for MXF and the latest R3D cameras.

If you already own Lock and Load, this is a free update for you.

What’s new?

Full Support for Multicam Clips

Unlike the built in stabilizer, Lock & Load X can be used natively on angles of multi-cam clips. Apply Lock & Load just to a section of an angle that needs stabilizing, or apply Lock & Load within the Angle Editor if you wish to apply it to a complete length of an angle. Both methods are supported.

Batch Tracking

If you have many clips you need to stabilize at once, now you can paste effects or paste attributes to analyze many clips in one go. A huge time saver on many projects. To use batch processing, place lock and load onto onto clip, then select the others you wish to analyse and select either paste effects or paste attributes, you will then see a window asking you if you want to batch process the clips. Once accepting this, the batch tracking window will open and show you the list of clips to be analyzed.

Optimized support for the latest RED Cameras

including the RED Weapon 8K, 4K, SCARLET-W, EPIC-W and RED Raven 4.5K.

Optimized support for MXF files (On Sierra only).

MXF is an increasingly important standard, shot by many cameras and also often a delivery format in European countries. Lock & Load now has optimized support for MXF files, making processing of them faster and easier.

Also works with After Effects CS6-CS2015 and Premiere Pro CS6-CS2017 (Mac only)
