Review: proDAD Mercalli SAL for Mac

Paul Schmutzler demos and discusses the first-ever Mac version of proDAD's popular and powerful Mercalli stabilization solution.

In this article we’ll look at proDAD’s Mercalli SAL for Mac, a new stabilization tool for the Mac. proDAD has made Mercalli for Windows for a number of years and they’re just now introducing the first Mac version. The big question is this: Why would you buy a standalone stabilization tool or plug-in when you've already got an NLE that probably has a stabilization plug-in built into it for free? That's the question I asked myself, so I decided to test it out after an invitation came from proDAD. My initial tests were pretty impressive. I'll walk you through those tests later in this review.

Read the whole review here.
