I am an occasional user, so I hope it's just a blunder on my end, but I can't seem to find a solution online for this. I am stabilizing a video footage by using the warp stabilizer. It works (i.e., I can see the footage stops shaking in the preview window) but when I go to File->Export Media; it does not export the effect. It will produce an exported video file, but the footage will be the shaky original. Why?!?
All I'm doing is:
Creating a new project, draging the video to the timeline, applying warp stabilizer (waiting for it to complete processing), and then trying to export. Do I have to apply the changes or something like that? The tutorials in the web do not seem to do that!
Thanks in advance!
It must be a bug. If I drag the clip into the timeline without altering it, it presents the issue described. If I crop the first few frames of the clip, then warp stabilizer works both in preview and export.
I think it has to do with the fact that the clip I'm importing has 5 still frames at the beginning (it's a timelapse). I don't understand why it would work in the preview, though. So confusing!!
Sorry to hear about this. Are you experiencing this issue with any specific media or is it with all the timelapse sequences? Also, is this timelapse a rendered video or is it a series of images imported as an image sequence in Premiere Pro?
Hello, Sumeet, thanks for your interest. I just shot another timelapse and found the same exact issue, so yes - it seems to be a bug. Basically I generate the timelapse movies by stitching together all still images to an *.avi file with a Python script, and the first image is repeated 5 times (this is just because in most cases the person opening the file misses the first few frames anyways).
When the timelapse *.avi file has these extra 5 frames it always shows the bug: You do the warp stabilizer, the command stabilizes the footage in Premiere's preview window, but when exporting the media file the warp stabilizer effect is not applied. If the 5 frames are removed (using the cut tool), then the warp stabilizer works in both preview and export.
My Premiere version is 13.1.5, Build 47; if that helps.
Try resetting the preferences:
If that doesn't work, try resetting the Workspaces:
Reset a workspace
Reset the current workspace to return to its original, saved layout of panels.
1. Do one of the following:
• Click the Workspace menu icon and select Reset to Saved Layout.
• Choose Window > Workspace > Reset to Saved Layout.
If that doesn't work, try Preferences > Audio Hardware and set Input to None.
If that doesn’t work, try updating or rolling back your graphics driver directly from the video card manufacturer’s site.
If that doesn't work, try creating a new project and import the old one into it.
Thanks, Peru Bob, for the response. This looks like random IT armwaving when you don't know what to do. I think I can do without the first 5 frames of my footage just fine 😃
Perhaps, but it sometimes solves the problem.
I am having this exact same issue. Applied warp stabilizer to clips in the timeline, showed perfectly stabilized in the preview but when I export, they are unstabilized/shakey as hell. Tried all the recommendations, nothing has worked. I edited something else this morning and stabilizer worked, but not now.
What version of PPro are you using?
