I have a clip that is a continuous shot. The clip is perfectly stable for the 1st half. Then towards the 2nd half does a couple bums and wobbles. I'd like to stabilize the 2nd half but not the 1st. Because the first half is just the perfect size keeping the subject in frame. I wouldn't want the stabilizer plug-in to chop part of the subject out of frame unnecessarily, for that 1st half of the clip.
How about blading the clip.. stabilize the second part and then applying the "flow" transition between the 2 clips? Would that work?
But then again, tweaking the amount of smoothing in the stabilization options still crops too much?
Try this.... apply stabilization. Then cut it in a few places.
Adjust the amount of stabilization applied much less in early cuts than later ones. It will be a gradual change and a blend transition between the cuts may even make it less noticeable.
