proDAD MERCALLI V4 SAL+ overview

  • 1Description

proDAD Mercalli V4 SAL+ is a standalone video stabilization software that analyzes and automatically stabilizes footage that suffers from bumps, shakes, and less than smooth camera moves. It also fixes various image artifacts caused by the dreaded rolling shutter effect that afflicts CMOS sensors. The correction is an automatic process, and the software is able to correct for multiple types of artifacts in the same footage. Mercalli V4 SAL+ is compatible with Windows systems.

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 from scene to scene. Where commonly stabilization is done by blowing up an image beyond its original borders, the "SmartBorder" technology in Mercalli V4 SAL+ reduces the need to zoom in during stabilization, leaving the borders of the original video intact. Skew is corrected by a feature called rolling shutter Compensation.

  • Greatly improved video stabilization

  • More cameras are supported
  • Universal profiles included
  • Dynamic Zoom Reduction (significantly reduces the need to zoom-in)
  • Improved border-boundary adjustments, which also reduces the need to zoom-in

proDAD MERCALLI V4 SAL+ reviews

Mercalli V4 SAL+ Stabilization Software for Windows (Download) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works very well I am using this software to stabilize forward moving video with and without vibration. It works as well as anything I've tried before. The only thing it can't fix is when large numbers of moving objects move across the background, such as walking through heavy brush and woods. I don't think any program can fix that. Learning curve is not bad. There are some good reviews on YT that show you most of the tricks. I had been using the stabilizer in Powerdirector and Mercalli V4 SAL puts it to shame. I think that once I learn the program better, I will be able to do some pretty amazing stuff with it. I'm glad I bought the program. B&H got the product key to me within a few hours of my purchase. One or two clicks and I was off and running. I saved over a hundred bucks by going through B&H instead of buying from Mercalli directly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very capable stabilizer I have used ProDAD Mercali for several years. I have not found a better program. The latest version appears faster, and the controls seem improved. It used all cores of my Threadripper. The preview mode works quite well, and it is easier to adjust the controls to optimize the result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems like a great product I have barely begun to use this program, but after installing the software, it took less than 10 minutes to start fixing up my camera files using the standard settings. Looks like there is a lot of flexibility for fine tuning, but you can get good results without any tweaking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Repair rolling shutter easily I had a problem with rolling shutter with my Sony RX10 IV it was very jerking video on boating on Sydney Harbour and Vivid Light show. The programme did a wonderful job of correcting the problem. Very impressed although a little expensive. Recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitive Solution to Every Shaking or Jittering Video I have tried EVERYTHING...and Mercalli is by far, the most advanced, most tweakable video stabilization stand-alone application. What makes it superior is its ability to control the type of stabilization effect. For example, you can make a video look like it was shot with a tripod or a steadicam. It corrects CMOS sensor jitter and wobble artifacts from action cams or just plain hand held phone recording. If you record with your phone, you need this. If you record with a gimbal, you need this. If you shoot with cameras attached to remote control devices or if you have a camera attached to a motorcycle helmet or car, you most definitely need this. For goodness sakes...if you're getting paid to shoot need this because it will make your shots incredible. Feature-wise, you have two modes: best fit, or best stabilization. Best fit will try to keep most of the video in frame without cropping the edges while best stabilization will literally, keep whatever you shot stabilized by shifting the actual video recording in 3D space to compensate for the angular rotation caused by your wrist or irregular recording angle. Mercalli handles all video types. There isn't any video that I have given it to import that it can't handle. From SD to UHD. Exported corrected video looks identical to the original. It had no problem with interlaced or de-interlaced video as well...the same video degradation. Even old VHS recordings can be fixed but I would suggest de-interlacing the video IF and ONLY IF the interlaced version doesn't come out as good. This is usually true for fast moving objects in the VHS movie. Honestly, this has recovered dozens of videos and saved me from re-shooting scenes again. Even videos that I think don't need stabilizing look so much better and makes everything look professionally shot. This program can almost give anyone capable of holding a video camera the ability to actually charge money for seemingly professionally shot video. In fact, it fixed a video that I had of someone running with a cell phone. That video was impossible to watch...impossible! And Mercalli actually stabilized it. Incredible! Literally...incredible results. I wish I could show you. As a final thought, I highly recommend this product for its superior performance and customizable features to fix even the worst shot videos. It fixes everything.
