Mercalli SAL Basic Tutorial


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



The good stuff.

Rock-steady video stabilization
The full power of the Mercalli V4 stabilization engine smooths out camera shake better than any other Mac-based stabilizing solution with less zoom-in for maximum resolution, and faster performance than competitors too. There is a reason Mercalli is the gold-standard in the video industry.

2-levels of automatic CMOS correction
Smooth out CMOS jitters from the edges of aerial drone video or remove moderate wobble/jello from clips caused by oscillation/vibrations.

Export in popular formats
Export in popular formats including ProRes 4444, ProRes 422 (all variants), H.264, and JPEG. Other legacy formats natively supported by Apple may work also.

Ditch the fisheye. Or not
Selecting the camera that created the video and click “remove fisheye warp” and its instantly trued-up. Enhanced camera profiles are optimized if you want to stabilize a clip and retain the fisheye warp – the right way.

Fix rolling-shutter skew
Have a shot where vertical objects seem to “lean” because they were filmed from a fast-moving vehicle? You have rolling-shutter skew, and Mercalli SAL can correct it with a singe click.

Flexible workflow
Import your raw media and have the flexibility to trim clips and even split clips before stabilization analysis to save processing time. Analyze clips one at a time, or as a batch. Export individually or in a batch too.

Stabilization presets
Get the smooth video you want fast with no or minimal fussing with adjustment sliders by selecting a ‘stabilization profile’ preset. The default Intelli-Universal profile can handle just about anything but the Action Camera profile gives specialized options including correcting video with fisheye warp (including the option to remove the fisheye.

Take in the view
Preview your video with corrections in real-time with full-frame or split side-by-side/top-bottom comparisons showing the original and corrected video before you commit to rendering/export.
