Editing VR footage is a breeze with new Adobe plug-in

CyberLink announced the release of a new plug-in for Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, CyberLink VR Stabilizer. 

Powered by the intelligent video stabilize technology used in CyberLink’s PowerDirector 16, this plug-in provides a high-quality editing tool for professionals while retaining the intuitive nature common in consumer-grade software.

CyberLink VR Stabilizer provides a user-friendly, time-saving and cost-efficient way to stabilize shaky 360-degree videos. 

Integrating seamlessly into the editing workflow of Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects, the CyberLink VR Stabilizer’s advanced analysis technology examines footage based on parameters set with two simple sliders to quickly produce 360-degree video free of shakes and stutters.

The plug-in also supports keyframes, allowing editors to take greater control of their footage to adjust Pitch, Yaw and Roll variables on any project.

For VR content creators, the introduction of 360-degree cameras has created a shortcut to record VR-ready content. 

However, shaky video footage is virtually unavoidable when shooting with a 360-degree camera, and current 360 video stabilization solutions cost hundreds of dollars and take filmmakers hours to perform.

Jau Huang, CyberLink CEO says, “With the cost of VR headsets rapidly decreasing, more creative professionals are considering 360-degree videos and VR as a medium to share their stories.

“We want to bring CyberLink’s intuitive editing experience to these professional creators so they can seamlessly take their audiences on new immersive adventures without having to break the bank.”

CyberLink specialises in multimedia software design. 

Since 1996, CyberLink has transformed how people enjoy and create media on PCs, mobile devices and in the Cloud. 

The company’s products are sold to all major PC manufacturers as well as millions of customers worldwide.
