Looks like there is a new tool to get soon. Image stabilization for After Effects by ReelSteady. Image stabilization become much better since After Effects CC 2015 but still, if you have real shaky footage, it’s still not perfect. Reel steady software for After Effects seems to be a great solution for this. The promo video showcases the results of the software and it looks quite promising.

If you don’t use image stabilization very often it’s maybe fine to stay with the After Effects solution before investing the 399$ for the software. But if you often shoot with GoPros, other handheld cameras or even areal footage, it’s maybe worth looking into ReelSteady.com and get your Free Trial.
