Converting After Effects Warp Stabilizer To Keyframes For More Control Of Stabilization

Jorrit Schulte shows us how to extract the Warp Stabilizer data into After Effects keyframes, with a clever technique that works for generating position, rotation and scale.

In today’s tutorial you’ll learn how to convert stabilization from the Warp Stabilizer to regular After Effects keyframes

You can stabilize your footage by replacing the processed clip with a new, black backgrounded one. This will allow you to track more easily using After Effects’s Warp Stabilizer Tracker! Depending on what kind of results are desired, keyframes might be an option for controlling how much stability is applied or even turn this effect off altogether so it doesn’t mess up any other shots in editor timelines if needed too.

JDI (Just do it features) are a fantastic addition to After Effects, but they stop short of giving the user back control after processing.

In After Effects, it is possible to create islands of functionality that are so disconnected from each other. One example would be with the 3D Camera Tracker and Warp Stabilizer–they both have individual functions but don’t interact in any way beyond their own respective components; another could apply for any component where there isn’t some logical flow linking one building block with its next neighbour(s).

Some people believe that the physics in game engines should be set on a global level, affecting everything. However this can’t happen because of how plugins work with Particular’s gravity and Newton Physics engine for example; they don’t have any logical idea about each other so you won’t find one setting to affect them all!

The Rotobrush tool in After Effects is a new and exciting way to create 3D text that allows you some degree of control over the segmentation boundary. The advanced feature set provides options for manually moving it, translating it using Bezier splines (to integrate with traditional rotoscoping), or even creating custom shapes like today’s logo!
