Video Stabilization

Most amateur videos are created without the planning and artistry required to make a good video. Many of them are captured using handheld cameras. They are very shaky and difficult to watch. Our team has developed a series of video stabilization methods to create good camera motion. "Warp Stabilizer" from Adobe Systems Inc. is largely based on our work. “Warp Stabilizer” has been shipped into Adobe After Effect 5.5, Adobe Premiere Pro 6.0, and their later versions. It has been used in many recent movies, such as the Oscar-Award winning movie, “Hugo”.

The all-new Warp Stabilizer effect in Adobe After Effects CS5.5 and Adobe Premiere Pro CS 6.0 is largely based on this research.
