Thanks,



Overall though the image stab s/w has improved things dramatically, the extra effort is worth it?

As an aside, I saw a guy on vimeo, think he posts on here too, he's dutch(holland) a little wacky(in a nice way, not an insult)but has good ideas and likes the sanyo alot. Anyway, he had a really good idea with the gorilla pos, he attached it such that he was holding it with essentially 2 hands, really neet, then he attached the remote to one of the legs and bingo, ready to shoot, steady and remote controlled, nice!!

this isnt the video, but search his right now set and you'll see the concept, also, here he's using the letus for dof effect, canon 5dmk2, who needs it!!

you can do this on windows with free tools. I am working on a tutorial which highlights specific points for easy conversion. Stabilization is good! Setup is the hard part i think only the first time.

I design User Interfaces for a living and tried using virtual dub and the stabilization plug in, but couldn't figure it out.

I love his videos...they are simply entertaining and he is such a great guy with an entertaining character. I do his 2 hand thing to stabalize camera and that worked for me.

I thought everyone would like to know the solution to my problem. I contacted the author and he had a couple of suggestions, one being that I may not have write access using the program.

I started the program using "Run as Administrator" and it worked fine.

Another thing to thank Vista for, lets hope Windows 7 is better.

EDIT====> further invetigation reveals that the problem is where DeShaker wants to save it's log file, it isn't Vistas fault. If you change the location of where the log file is saved to say under Users it will work fine.

The only problems is you have to do that every time you use DeShaker or as I first said just start the program as Administrator.

A couple of other things for people trying this program.

1. The second play button is the one to use after you have chosen deshaker 1st pass.

2. Do not jump to the beginning of the clip before you pick pass 2 in deshaker otherwise the log file may be overwritten.

3. Also make sure you choose Video>compression and choose a codec otherwise you will end up with an uncompressed avi and like me I had my 13meg test video end up a 1.4gig video. :??:?

Cheers

Robert

You can also use the SmoothCam filter in Final Cut Pro

For HD1000 / 1010 footage you need to convert the movie to a Quicktime movie for the filter to work.
Simply open the MP4 file in Quicktime. Click "Save" Rename the File and save it. The movie will "flatten" in seconds. Then import it into FCP. For some reason, the SmoothCam Filter won't work with MP4 files. If you can get this to work without saving in Quicktime, please tell me how.

A great tutorial on SmoothCam can be found here:

If you don't have FCP, IStabilize totally rocks.
