How to Remove Warping from Warp Stabilizer

Warp Stabilizer is a powerful tool inside Adobe’s Premiere Pro and After Effects. However, it is not perfect.

Some shots with moving subjects (in addition to camera movement) can add a warble to the image, which creates an ugly jello effect on elements within the shot. The key to getting rid of the additional warbling is to remove tracking data from moving objects within the frame and only using static objects for tracking.

The video above from Cal Thomson shows you how to move from Premiere Pro to After Effects to remove non-essential tracking data. It’s a simple process even though it can be a rather long and mundane task.
