It is in fact possible to stabilize certain scenes with camera motion in
Flame, Flint or Inferno. It does require some specific procedures, such
as isolating X or Y motion, anylizing the motion data, and use negative
motion and jitter removal. Quite a long process at times, but we have
been successful in a number of occasions.
However, we almost never decide to bypass Telecine registration, as we
consider Flame stabilizing a creative tool, not a way to replace
perfectly adequate Film to Tape procedures.
