New software for steadying handheld shots

 Adobe has just come out with Creative Suite 5.5 (CS 5.5), and has added a feature to AfterEffects that might be very useful to some real estate shooters:  Warp Stabilizer.


Here's a link to a demo:  http://tv.adobe.com/watch/adobe-technology-sneaks-2011/sneakpreview-of-new-motion-stabilizer-for-after-effects/?PID=2159997


Basically, it seems to greatly stablize handheld shots, which I know that a number of you rely on, and has a special means of dealing with the artifacts stablization programs tend to create on footage shot on chips with rolling shutters (the vast majority of us).


To use it properly, you'd need to shoot very wide, because the program has to resize to work its magic.  The resulting loss of resolution should be no issue, because most of our work is on the Net anyway, and shooting in 1080p would still yield a final image that's 720p or better.


Just FYI.
