The proDAD Mercalli V2 Pro - Video Stabilization Software analyzes and automatically corrects for various unstable shots, zoom / pan / tilt / track / dolly jitter, and jello and skew artifacts.
A 3-dimension stabilization process independently stabilizes the X, Y, and Z camera axes to more thoroughly correct for unstable capture, and a feature called Dynamic Camera Options enables you to control the level of stabilization so that your footage doesn't look uniform from scene to scene. Where commonly stabilization is done by blowing up an image beyond its original borders, Mercalli V2 Pro's "SmartBorder" technology reduces the need to zoom in during stabilization, leaving the borders of the original video intact. Jello and skew are corrected by a feature called Rolling-Shutter Compensation.
Mercalli V2 Pro can be used as a plug-in with many Mac and Windows NLEs, and it can also be used as a standalone version that exports the corrected videos to your desktop or other folder, from where they can be imported to an NLE or burned to a disc. You can use both versions at the same time as long as they are on the same computer.
