When 360/VR footage is shot with a moving camera, a common challenge is “stabilizing the horizon”. When viewed through a VR headset, jitter and warped 360 footage can be difficult to watch.
In this new tutorial, mocha Pro specialist, Mary Poplin shows Adobe CC users 3 techniques for stabilizing the horizon in After Effects & Premiere Pro driven by mocha’s planar tracking.
1. Stabilize in Adobe AE CC using Mettle Skybox and mocha Pro 5 plug-in. (1:00)
2. Stabilize in Adobe AE CC using Dashwood VR and mocha Pro 5 plug-in. (7:00)
3. Stabilize in Adobe Premiere Pro CC using Mocha VR, a new plug-in product currently in beta. (12:30)
mocha VR is being developed as a plug-in for Adobe, Avid and OFX hosts such as NUKE.
