I just started using Adobe premiere pro CS4 with prodad mercalli (full version) as a plug in for video stabilisation, and am just at the experimentation stage playing with the various settings in prodad for the best results. Am not having much sucess so far, the original footage is better than when the stabilisation has been applied. prodad gets good reviews, so I think I must be doing something wrong.
Does anyone use this software? Any pointers appreciated!

I used that product in the past but like you I did not have much success. Most people, myself included, have used the free "Deshaker" with good results. At the end of the day, the best option is always to get smooth footage in the beginning...

Can you post a split screen sample of what your seeing?
(check the split screen check box in Mercalli)

Cheers,
Jeff

Shroomer.

I used Premiere back since the 1.0 version.

Im not a big fan of it. After Final Cut Pro was released
it made my life much easier. Apple hit a homerun with FCP.
We used it for broadcast editing and commercials. It runs
pretty much flawless. There is a smaller bundle version
called Final Cut Express. Lil cheaper.

The best results for stabilization is to use a gyro
setup on your camera setup on your heli.

*** Also try shooting at 60 frames per second if you can.
This will smooth things out alot!

just my 2 cents.
