After Effects New Features – Changes to the Warp Stabilizer

The new version of After Effects features a redesigned Warp Stabilizer.
The effect, now known as Warp Stabilizer VFX features a number of new options. I go over some of these in the video, but there’s more!
- Auto-delete points across time. What this means is if we have points that we don’t want to contribute to our solve, we can delete them once and they will automatically be removed across the duration of your shot.
- Preserve scale. Which is a way to change how AE looks at tricky shots. Shots such as fly thoughs tended to be tricky for the old Warp Stabilizer. With this checked, AE won’t attempt to correct scale adjustments.
- Reversible stabilization and reverse stabilize, which let you use duplicate instances of the effect to freeze the scene, add other effects to the scene like paint or liquify, then bring the motion of the original scene back in.
- Apply motion to target or apply motion to target over original. These allow you to composite another layer into your scene using warp stabilizer vfx to bring the motion to that layer.
