Giving Video Clips a Pro Look

Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5 and CS 6.0 has a neat feature called Warp Stabilization - this can be used on any clip that suffers from jitteriness. It works if you have a fluid head that sticks, if you shoot hand-held, out of a car window - almost on anything with, in some cases, a spectacular result.  As you can see from the extreme examples in this video, even a bonnet-mounted GoPro producing shots that appear unusable are rendered quite smooth. I was blown away with this addition to the Pr stable. Previously you'd have to buy a very expensive plug-in for Premiere to get the same effect. Now it is included in the app.   If you shoot a lot of video, you'd buy this program just  for the stabilization app alone...
