After Effects, especially with Mocha, has the most advanced motion tracking and stabilization capabilities of these 3 options, but they are also the most complicated to use if you want the best possible results.

This keeps the workflow simple. Keeping things simple would allow you to create more ...

Definitely the Warp Stabilizer its a very easy to use and powerful tool and I'd say the best tool for automatic stabilization out there. When it comes to the more manual workflow, yes, After Effects together with Mocha is a lot harder to use but you can get very great results with a certain amount of experience. Given that After Effects offers both I ...
