I have written before about some of the interface shortcomings, not the least of which is this: Please, ProDAD, fix this! OK, enough griping for now. However, unless you purchase a turnkey aerial photo solution, making and tuning a working platform is not a trivial endeavor. The results were not pretty: Check THIS out: It might not be perfect, but it is an astounding increase in quality and while it may look like it, that clip is NOT in slo-mo. This is not a fast process, but it does max out the processing capability of the host computer I tested on my quad-core Asus I7 laptop.
In testing, when the software was making a CMOS map the analysis times were often in excess of an hour for clips of less than a minute — an issue that discourages tweaking and experimenting, which getting the best results will demand. If you do choose to tweak, there is a panel with sliders for each and every parameter you could want to adjust. Watch the top and bottom of the frame immediately as the bike jumps the log.

If CMOS were the main issue in the footage then very little, if any, zoom in would be needed to correct your footage. This means you retain more of your original footage. This allows you to isolate those special sections you want to include in your main project. Figure 2. Choosing CMOS correction options. The more extreme the option you select, the longer it will take for Mercalli to analyze your clip.
If your CMOS issues are minor, then perhaps the lowest setting will do the trick. If you click on the down arrow, the dialog shown in Figure 3 below appears.
For example, at the most extreme settings for my bike footage included at the end of this article , my clip was set for 6. It takes a while, but the results are worth it if you need to use that footage. My sample clip had pretty bad CMOS issues so it probably took much longer than footage that was not as bad. Figure 3. Note the three options shown. These are the steps Mercalli is using to fix your footage.
