After stabilization with Mercalli (V1 or V2) in Pinnacle Studio, the quality of the stabilized video scene is worse.
Reason:When the option "Full preview quality" (in the "Video and Audio Preferences" settings dialog) is disabled in Pinnacle Studio, the video analysis in Mercalli is carried out at a lower resolution and this affects the quality of the stabilization.Even when the project has been completed in Pinnacle Studio, the quality of the scenes stabilized with Mercalli remains low.
Solution:Select the option "Full preview quality" (in the "Video and Audio Preferences" settings dialog) before analysing your video scene in the Mercalli timeline.
If you have already analysed the video scene with Mercalli, with the option "Full preview quality" disabled in Pinnacle Studio, follow these steps: Remove Mercalli from the timeline in your video, select the option "Full preview quality" in the "Video and Audio Preferences" settings dialog, and drag Mercalli onto the video scene again.Now analyse the video once more with Mercalli.
Which Plugin Version Mercalli V2 needs to be installed for EDIUS5, Premiere CS3, Premiere CS4, Premiere Elements, MAGIX Video deluxe, Vegas Pro 9 (32bit)?
Answer:For these editing solutions please always use the 32bit Version of the Mercalli V2 Plugins because these NLEs are 32bit Versions, tough they´re in use on Windows 7 64 Bit systems.
Problem: The Mediaplayer playback of a Mercalli-created videofile is always 4:3 although the original footage was 16:9.
Solution: Mercalli also offer to generate WMV files for export, those generated files also Media Player playback correctly as 16:9 .
Note: It´s obligatory that the video has been identified as 16:9 format video during import in Mercalli.
Due to some limitations of Premiere´s Plugin-Interface please avoid following items:
- Don´t use slow / fast motion effects for clips which needs to be processed by Mercalli.
- If the clip is processed also by other effects, please make sure that Mercalli is always on top of the stack so it´s the first process.
- Don´t use Transitions in videos which needs to be stabilized
