Default After Effects plugin that eliminates "rolling shutter"

I just got a chance to try this in AE and it works like magic. It eliminates slanted moving objects caused by the CMOS rolling shutter effect, while leaving other objects untouched, somehow.

Obvously you'll have to have After Effects to use this:

That effect has been noted with focal plane shutters; the photo below shows the effect of that and panning. The photo is more than 90 years old so the copyright has (most likely) run out.

I don't have After Effects so can't see how that software would sort out the background from the race car and deal with them to get everything straight without manually defining the two.

I have no idea how, but it does just that. Apparently some kind of crazy genius math is at work. Of course, there are some shots that are so shaky and rubbery, the software is confounded. In that case, only a reshoot can fix things.

Interesting. Could you post an example of what it does to the race car photo above?"

It won't work on still pictures. It needs temporal information, gathered over several frames.
