    Stabilize handheld shots

    I use BCC Optical Stabilizer all the time. Works great for shakey shots or bumps when the camera is on a tripod. But handheld shots never turn out great. The shots hava a weird warpy thing. Anyone reccomend settings that helps with this? Or other software?

    Thanks

    Re: Stabilize handheld shots

    I'll give it a shot again.  If I remeber correctly, BCC is faster and more flexible, which is why I switched.  For example, BCC will smooth or stabilize which has come in handy and was able to easily fix a shot where the zoom was sticky and started and stopped frequently.

     

    Thanks

    The nice thing about the built in Avid Stabilizer is that it works automatically. Just drop it onto a shot and let it do it's thing.
