I'm making a short film based on the video game crysis, I'm using the canon 5D to shoot there is going to be a lot of jarring hand held footage that needs to be tracked. The rolling shutter makes this a NIGHTMARE, my question is has anyone used the FOUNDRY'S (800!!$) rolling shutter plugin.

A way to skip the problem with most of your scenes in the teaser might work with some basic 3D sets with camera mapping.

There is a free rolling shutter application but I can't recall what it's called

Well I would be very interested in you remembering.

And I didnmt think foundrys solution was 80 bucks.

Do you have a small shot in original size for Testing?

I used often Canon 7D Footage with SynthEyes and Fusion 6.0 (with a RollingShutter.comp) without any problems....

hey justin..it is hard to track with or without rolling shutter effect. Because of codec, compression does make footage almost impossible to point track.

You may try to use Mocha ..because it does use planar tracker. It may also be helpful even rolling shutter-ed footage.

wish you luck...

This tutorial isn't a perfect solution (and the guy's really bad at showing how to do it) but it does give a fix within AE with out any plugins: http://lesterbanks.com/2010/03/rolling-shutter-fix-in-after-effects-with-no-plugins/

The free solution I was thinking of is VirtualDub's DeShaker: http://www.guthspot.se/video/deshaker.htm

Here's a thread on the 5D forums:
