Post AE's Warp Stabilizer?
Being a newie and while i'm waiting for my newly ordered camera to arrive later this month, i spent the last week reading a lot about "the ideal workflow" for so called hyperlapse photography.

Scrolling through the posts on this forum i've found absolutely nothing about the use of AE's Warp Stabilizer feature to stabilize the footage from a timelapse with a moving camera, i.e. hyperlapse.

Before discovering this forum i viewed these two tutorials:

And the "making of" video of this young man who also seems to use the aforementioned AE feature:

So i was wondering: Does LRTimelapse offer an alternative to AE's Warp Stabilizer feature that i'm not aware of? I'm not familiar with LRTimelapse but as it seems the most popular postproduction software on this forum i was wondering wether this is where stabilization is done instead of in AE.

Any clarification would be much appreciated!

As far as I know After Effects or Premier Pro are the only ones with good automatic stabilization.

No, LR timelapse does not do stabilization, if that's what you're asking. It can do "de-flickering" - smoothing out sudden exposure changes. It can also smoothly "ramp" lots of other Lightroom parameters up or down over a sequence of images: brightness, white balance, saturation, cropping, etc.

I think most of us here shoot timelapse images from a stable tripod or motion-control setup, so stabilization is not needed (nor discussed much). Certainly an important topic if you're doing "Hyperlapse", though. AE Warp seems to be the most popular choice for that.

Thanks a lot guys, that clarifies things for me now!
I'll have to find out now when would be best to fit AE stabilization into the overall workflow.
But I guess I'll better create a new topic for that one.
