I have a continuous shot video that is split into 2 parts (my camera splits them at 4GB) and want to apply the warp stabilizer to the whole video. Since the warp stabilizer is using analyzing them independently, the zoom factor is never the same.

I tried to manually determine the zoom factor of the stabilizer but there is no way of setting the actual zoom. I only can set the maximum zoom and an additional % of zoom. On top of that, the center of reference for the zoom is different in each clip even if I manage to hit the same zoom factor.

What's the best way to stabilize the whole shot? Is there a way to link them before applying the stabilizer? Or do I need to join them, export the sequence, re-import the result and then stabilize it?

  • Why do you need to split them in two? If there is other stuff in between, is it really important they have the exact same zoom factor (since there will be no visible jump between frames)? Also note that you can manually set a zoom factor using the warp stabilizer options. – MoritzLost Aug 31 '17 at 19:24

    It's split because the camera splits the files at 4GB. I don't want them to be split. – uncovery Sep 1 '17 at 0:26
  • What kind of camera do you have? If you import the footage using Premiere's media browser, continuous sequences split by the camera should show up as a single file. See this thread for some info. Of course there's a number of reasons for this not to work, ranging from deleting the metadata files created by the camera to the camera model being not supported by Premiere ... – MoritzLost Sep 1 '17 at 9:04
  • It's a Canon 5D IV. I import the data with Lightroom. – uncovery Sep 1 '17 at 9:05
  • You import the video files using Lightroom? What for, do you need the video files in Lightroom? – MoritzLost Sep 1 '17 at 9:09
