If you own a Mac, you’re in for something special: proDAD announced Mercalli EZ Mac, a $29 ‘Quick Fix’ that puts and end to strange looking videos.
Mercally EZ Mac software arrived and the end of shaky, wobbly, and warped drone and action camera videos is now available for everyone. Aerial drone and GoPro-type action camera users who use a Mac know all too well there has not been an easy way to fix shaky, janky, and warped videos without spending serious money, but that ends today. It will cost you $29 to have this ‘Quick Fix’!
With the new software proDAD wanted to offer Mac users big improvements to problem videos for a small price. Mercalli EZ Mac is based on the same technology as the professional-grade Mercalli SAL Mac video stabilizer and CMOS correction application. However EZ is a mostly automatic tool with very simple interface for those who just need a quick cleanup of a shaky, wobbly, warped video clip and don’t need all the pro-level adjustments. Exactly what some people need. And if at any time you decide to invest in the complete program, you can upgrade.
proDAD’s Mercalli video stabilization technology is legendary and is relied on by major studios, video editors & post-production specialists around the globe for one simple reason: it works. And works well, delivering the best possible stabilization with minimal resolution loss due to zoom-in that is required for stabilizing video. proDAD also pioneered CMOS distortion correction to remove jitter and wobble from video, something completely different from camera shake that stabilization alone can correct. Automatic fisheye warp removal is also a proDAD innovation as is stabilizing warped videos correctly when the fisheye warp is a desired look. Wrap all 3 of these technologies into a single macOS application and automate them and you have Mercalli EZ Mac.
“Drone-flying and GoPro-wearing consumers and enthusiasts want their videos to look great but don’t necessarily have the skills or the budgets that professionals have to fix them.” said Robert DeMoulin, CEO of proDAD, Inc. “While some camera and drone makers have in-camera stabilization, Mercalli EZ actually does a better job smoothing things out, and significantly better than even iMovie’s stabilizer. Because Mercalli EZ does its magic after the video is recorded, it gives people the freedom to forget about clumsy sticks and just focus on catching the action.”
