Mike Zeigler Long Drive Champ

This is a video we edited for a local cable TV station staring Mike Zeigler who is ranked in the top 20 in Long Drive competition (2005). The original broadcast version did not contain any titles, because the station added those to fit the show this segment was created for. We had to edit the video to fit into a 4 minute time slot. With 45 minutes of video and no B roll footage we had to improvise.

There was one portion of the video that was hand held and needed some stabilization. I used Mercalli from proDad to do the trick. It gave me good results with a good quality image after stabilization. I use the Pro version because I run into a lot of shaky camera footage since I work so much with "home movies".

I have run into some old film that I could not stabilize. Each time the problem was related to poor image quality and Mercalli simply could not "see" any images to lock onto. That was with version 1. So far I have not had an opportunity to run V2 through the gantlet in all the scenarios, but what I have done, Mercalli V2 Pro is doing an even better job than V1.
