Stabilization and Object Removal with After Effects CS5

Stabilization | From Shaky Beginnings | A Tranquility

In this tutorial, we use Adobe After Effects CS5 and take a look at stabilizing a piece of footage. Once the footage is stable, we “paint” out two unwanted objects from the shot using a quick and simple technique. We then complete the shot with some quick colour corrections.

Hope you enjoy it!

    nice, clean simple tut. thanks!

    A tutorial i know A LOT of us AE users could use is a 3D Repousse workflow, tips, uses, tutorial. Since CS5 has touted this, I haven’t seen much about using it (from PS to AE). Any thoughts on doing one for us? 3D text in AE is still a void imho. Workarounds and other programs (Zaxwerks for example)are there, but to be able to use the new CS5 repousse tools would be great to learn more about.

    Hey Devos,

    Sorry, I could try and do some in french, but it would be a pretty poor showing, i’m afraid. My french is pretty rusty :)

    I’d be interested in seeing the same tutorial in Fusion. I’d like to learn a bit more Fusion.

  9. Kirk Says:

    Very helpful tutorial and very clear presentation — plus a lot of great tips and details on AE for frequent fixes needed on footage shot by anyone.

  10. Darin Says:

    thank’s for tuts.

    If one day you have time it will great. Making a tuts using stabilizing a moving footage like steady cam movement and using tracking for removing and adding object.

    A 3d tracking will super great too

    thanks a lot
