Warp Stabilizer in After Effects CS6 for GoPro Video Editing

Here is a GoPro video editing tip: So you got the GoPro and you took it out for a couple test rides. You think everything is cool, looks pretty good right? Well, that was probably around the block in the neighborhood. Once you hit the highways and various streets and pavements, things can get a bit dicey. The camera vibrates pretty bad at higher speeds like 60-75+. Here is one tip if you are pretty big into editing like we are.

We use Adobe’s Premiere Pro CS5. You can manually edit out all the vibrations and shaking in your footage by hand (if you have the time) in several video editing programs. HOWEVER, if you have the cash (or a teacher to hook you up with the student/educator discount from Adobe) then you can get After Effects 6.0 and remove all the shaky footage in the push of a button. After Effects CS6 does all the work for you automatically so you can have smooth videos (like the somewhat misleading GoPro commercials) with the push of one button. In AE CS6 this tool is called the “Warp Stabilizer” and works like a charm. Once we spring for the update from After Effects CS5 to CS6, we will show you plenty of our new GoPro videos along with a demo on using the Warp Stabilizer. If you have anything less than CS6 and you use Adobe, have fun doing all that work by hand! :(
