I want fix some very shaky video footage. Does Adobe Premiere CS3 have a video stabilizer if not-is there a good third party program for cheap?
iMovie 9 has this feature. Link to it on the Apple web site .

Thanks for your response Brian-imovie was always in the back of my mind however I thought Premiere was one step above imovie-shouldn't Premiere have an image stabilizer somewhere? Am I overlooking the feature or does it even exist on that particular program?
I just checked my version Premiere CS4 and there is not any image stabilization that it's help will admit to. Apparently there was a plugin for Premiere CS2 but from what I read it was quite poor. I did find the following with reference to After Effects, check that out here.
CS5 Premiere and After Effects will be out on the 30th so we can just hope that it is there. I have seem some previews of Premiere CS5 and what I have seen is awesome.
The best solution we have is After Effects 4 point motion tracking . It's pretty good. You basically just open the Premiere sequence up in AE or dynamic link. The main issue with most simple Prmeiere plug-is like 2D3 SteadyMove Pro is keyframing.
You can never go wrong by doing the right thing.

Thank you Brian and Terry, I will definitely use After Effects or imovie-it will take forever, I have a ton of video from 11 years ago that I taped on my video camera pre-image stabilizer. It will be a long process (as long as it works, I guess). At least the technology is here.
