    Can anyone recommend the best ways to fix the Lens Distortion on the GoPro footage?
    What are the best programs for stabilization?
    Thanks

    For the price, Prodrenalin seems pretty good. You end up with some distortion around the edges, but it removes most of the fisheye.

    After a bunch of research I've found that Adobe has pretty great tools for post. Lens correction through photoshop and stablization + rolling shutter through After effects

    Prodrenalin for about 50 bucks
    That Adobe solution would cost big bucks

    either way, if you're going to be applying stabilization, do the lens correction first, then apply the stabilization.

    stabilizing stuff shot with lens distortion sometimes produces some warpy effects.

    yeah that's the order ProDrenaling processes the video ie defiseyes first
    Does take a while cuz it corrects every single frame one at a time but it make the vieo sooo much better, it's worth the wait

    Apparently there's a new version of CineForm Studio coming in August, so before you buy anything else it might be worth waiting to see how that pans out.
