When I try this for VS 2021 it will not load. When I change the dll back to the original VS2021 loads ok.

I followed the instruction below from the link (substitute 2021 folder)

1. Close Video Studio 2019 if it is open
2. Navigate to C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel VideoStudio 2019
3. Locate the existing HerDocdll.dll file and rename it (e.g. HerDocdll-old.dll) and/or copy it to another location
4. Extract the new alternate HerDocdll.dll from the ZIP file and copy it to C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel VideoStudio 2019, replacing the renamed file (you might require administrative privileges to do this)
5. Re-launch VS19

I also tried running mercalli_64x.exe from the the post after the above but that made no difference - VS2021 would still not load (unless i changed the dll back).

Is there something else that needs to be done?

I need to fix the Mercalli issue as I am working on a project where I use the stabiliser a lot (footage whilst on a boat) and every time i analyze one clip the other clips need re-analyzing.
Thanks for any assistance.

Snowstorm said he couldn't find the analyse button . . .
select the clip to be stabilised, and drag mercalli on to it from the filters library.
select the middle options button in the libraruy panel, and then the effect tab. Observe the mercalli filter in the list (there may be others), click it to higlight, then at the bottom, RH side of the panel see the customise filter link, select it.
The mercalli panel opens, and now you can choose various settings and stabilising profiles adjust the result. In this panel is the analyse button - once you have made the settings, click it and observe the algorithm scan the clip. At this point, if you make any change to the length of the clip (trim, or insert a transition), you will get the re-analyse message.

See screenshot with mark-ups for the various points above

Thanks for the info. No worries on this side of things for me. I use it all the time. What i have noticed though in 2021 is that when i click analyze the button flashes orange before analyzing - not sure it has always done that and i have never noticed or whether it is part of the issue.

Hello, thanks for the response. Yes i was applying the 2019 fix as i thought the last post on that thread said it also fixed 2021. so i will abandon that thread.

I have run the .exe file in the zip you provided before but that did not seem to work. I have run it again. Having looked more closely at what happens I can see that actually it may not be the original behaviour before the fix.

There are two areas that seem to be an issue
1) when i have a transition between clips the Mercalli stabiliser image appears for the duration of the transition (not on the rest of the clip). Is it not possible to use transitions when using Mercalli on a clip?
2) at one part of the project i have three videos over three tracks (they appear side by side in the preview pane). whenever i stabilise one the other two pop up as needing analyzing again. This is why i thought the fix did not work but maybe it is because Mercalli can't be applied to clips that occupy the same point in the project?

Thank you for any assistance on this!

Hi JSH
Can you first check the version of Mercalli 5.0, I am using version 5.0.518.1 after applying the hot fix.
Mercalli 5 0 518 1.jpg
1 /
I tested Mercalli on two clips with a transition applied, both clips were of the same format, I did not have a problem with Mercalli, the clips played throughout including the transition, no problems.
I then added another video + transition, again no issues using Mercalli

2 /
I added 4 video clips to the overlay tracks, above each other, well one on the top track, positioned each clip to the corners of the preview screen
Applied Mercalli to each clip in turn
There was no request to analyse again, seemed to work for me.

I have to say that Mercalli is particular using Project Properties, Video properties in particular frame rates, Your videos and project settings should be the same, then rendering using Share may mess up if settings are not the same.
Also trimming a clip that has Mercalli will require analysing again.

Goes without saying that mixing video types may cause Mercalli to mess up.
