I have heard great things about the new Warp Stabilizer from After Effects latest offering (CS5.5). I decided to download the free trial and do my own side by side comparison from the SmoothCam feature in FCP 6 (2007 Version) and the Warp Stabilizer.

For some reason the Warp Stabilizer footage is giving me a weird "rolling shutter" or "jello" kind of effect... It was not in the original footage and not in the footage stabilized by FCP. The wood in the background almost appears to be a sheet that's waving in the wind... After Effects did take almost half the time of FCP though. Waiting to see what FCP X brings before I purchase anything new.
