Warp Stabilizer offsets frame location
Premiere 13.1.5- working in a triptych layout for a museum installation. Full HD has been shrunk to 33%. I have left, center and right images laid out for color correction and tweaks.
I applied the Warp Stabilizer to a center screen image with these settings:
Result: Smooth Motion
Method - Position, Scale, Rotation
Preserve Scale- unchecked
Borders>Framing- Stabilize, Crop, Auto-Scale
I've converted the project to Premiere 14 to do final review. At the point where this stabilized screen appears it shifts to the upper left during playback. When I stop playback, it appears right back where it belongs, centered and flush with flanking screens.
I don't use WP too often in this show. But now I have to check to see if other screens are affected.
Although I dislike the"new"Cloud Desktop app's layout as intensely as most users, at least it lists both previous and new iterations of the apps. I'm thinking this will be extremely important. Unless I'm mistaken, you have some effects translation work to do in 14 before releasing it?
UPDATE- This phenomenon happens in13.1.5 as well!!
In each case, I made a DUPLICATE TIMELINE to rescale each screen to full frame for export. And before I do any of that, I review it and I see the WP screen behaves exactly the same way in the DUPLICATE timeline.
Best, as always,

Adobe, I cannot believe you have not addressed this bug at all in the many, many years it has been an issue.

Setting the scale to 50.1 definitely solves the issue, but it is another step and Adobe should address this issue! I truly enjoy Adobe CC, the libraries, Photoshop, Illustrator, After Effects, and occasionally other apps but - Premiere is the one that is giving me hard time with problems. I am using other apps similar to Premiere, and to be honest it's beginning to lag behind in both functions and performance for past 2-3 years.
Aaron Fisher commented
same issue, using the 50.1% scale workaround but another obnoxious bug in premiere....
Christopher McIntosh commented
I'm having this issue too! Version 15.4. It was showing the offset during export too. I had adjusted the position to look 'right' during playback, and as soon as I touched scale (which was at 50%, 4k to HD) the offset disappeared and I had to undo my corrections. For some reason scaling in to 55% fixed it. Must be some error with the Warp Stabilizer effect.

Still having this issue - June 2021 - Brand new specced up iMac 2021

Still an issue. I've got a low resolution source, upscaled 182%, then nested. Warp Stabiliser on the nested clip still offsets by a few hundred pixels. Stabilize Only mode, and Preserve Scale.

I just found a stupidly simple fix for this on YouTube from Romain Do. If you want to skip the video linked below. Basically, the quickest fix is to set the scale of your clip to 50.1 or higher. If the scale is at 50.0 or less the offset will still happen. I literally just tried this and it worked like a dream. Hope this helps someone and much as it helped me!

To me it happens when I reduze UHD Material in a HD Timeline by 50% and add the warp stabilizer. When I change 50% to 50,1 the problem is gone. It's really stupid but this is at last an easy solution better than nesting.
Jay Machalani commented
Stuffing all the footage inside a nest sequence if far from a solution... Makes any serious color work extremely difficult.
Chris Shaffer commented
I haven't experienced this problem in years... now it's back and it's killing me. I have the latest 14.8 and it's 2021. It's crashing on me a lot too. I really like the interface of Premiere, but the performance is draining me.
Ben Jamin commented
please fix this bug - I'm using Martin's work around too. But this is annoying and shouldn't be happening.
Colin Mack Nair commented
Hey guys, found a solution that doesn't include switching playback to software only.
Make all the necessary adjustments you need to do on your video file in the timeline. Then right click on the clip you want to warp stabilize, click on "Nest..." create the nested sequence. Then drop the warp stabilizer on that nested clip and it'll work as needed. Warp stabilizer has an easier time doing what it needs to do when it's running on a nested clip.

Same here Bryan White, November 2020 and still experiencing this issue.
Bryan White commented
Having the same problem in November 2020
Going to try some of the work around mentioned here but it would be nice if Adobe could fix this. It's not like we don't pay them enough ;P
Marcus Hooper commented
I'm having the same issue.
I found that rendering from the in to out point is a good temporary fix. However, if I was working on a slower machine, this process might take a while each time.
Pierre Louis Beranek commented
Just experienced this issue for the first time ever on version 14.3.1. Very frustrating! Thank you for the scaling tip Juan! Setting my 4k footage in FullHD timeline to 50.01% solves the problem! This issue needs to be fixed quick.
Juan Herrera commented
I'm working with 4k footage on an HD timeline and it's been persistently happening on two devices now. I've learned that if you adjust the SCALE of the footage even by just one point, the image stays fixed even during playback. (It renders out fine either way) It's just very very, VERY obnoxious not being able to see your frame during playback edits and then also now having to crop into an image just for the luxury we should already have to be able to edit a product together.
Kyle Stebbins commented
This is still an issue, and has been for years.
Daiki Shinomiya commented
Same exact problem for me... any updates?
