Video stabilization (deshaking)

Video stabilization (also called deshaking) is the process of eliminating shake that occurs when shooting video. This operation is quite resource-intensive and, in any case, with losses. We lose a little quality during video compression. With a high degree of probability, we lose part of the image at the edges of the frame, so we recommend that you try to shoot a stable video initially.

To obtain an acceptable deshaking result, the video editor operates two passes. At first, it scans the video and tries to determine the static part of the frame (now it should become clear why we lose some parts of the image at the edges of the frame). The second pass is cutting out the found static part of the frame, stretching it to the entire available area of ​​the frame and saving. Some programs try to stabilize the video in real-time, in one pass. Still, no matter how hard we tried, we did not notice the difference visually after such "stabilization" :) Only two-pass algorithms give a good result. This is what we chose for Bolide Movie Creator.

Eliminate video shake in Bolide Movie Creator

There are two ways to stabilize video in our video editor: you can eliminate shaking in the whole video file listed in the Photo/Video library or de-shake a selected video block in a timeline.
