Mercalli Easy review

Manufacturer: Mercalli Easy

Our Rating: We rate this 3.5 out of 5

Mercalli Easy is easy-to-use software that automatically stabilises video footage. Here's our Mercalli Easy review.

Mercalli Easy video stabiliser removes the shakes and jitters from video footage. Pros may need more control over the process, but the average user should be more than pleased with the results of this software. See all software downloads.

Though image stabilisation in cameras and smartphones has come a long way, it's still got a long way to go. Video stabiliser Mercalli Easy is easy-to-use software for your PC that offers what some cameras don't: An automatic and effective solution for stabilisation and other issues in your videos. See also: Group test: what's the best video-editing software?

Aside from the common shake and jitter problems--which Mercalli Easy handles nicely--smartphone and digital camera videos also suffer other wonkiness, such as rolling shutter. Then there are stutters and dropouts when video frames can't be captured or written fast enough to memory. Mercalli Easy also did a nice job correcting these issues on all of the videos I put it to work on.

Using Mercalli Easy is a snap. Drag the imperfect video to the program's main window, press the play button, and save the result.

Pros may need more control over the process, which can be found in vendor proDAD's more expensive offerings, but the average user should be more than pleased with the results of Mercalli Easy.

The free demo Mercalli Easy is fully-functional, so you can get a feel for how well it works, but saved files have a watermark in the form of a large pink X across the screen. The only caveat is that there is effective video stabilisation in most video editors and suites these days, so don't pay for it twice.
