How to Stabilize Shaky Video

You’ve probably seen professional camera operators wearing futuristic-looking costumes with their camera attached to their clothing. They do this to stabilize the camera while they move freely around the movie set. There are many less-complex means (mechanical, optical and digital) to prevent camera shake; for more information, click this link. If you don’t use video stabilizers while filming, you will probably be unpleasantly surprised by the shaky, blurry images you end up with. But even then, all is not lost! If you find yourself in this situation, the best way to fix your footage is to use video stabilization software. We recommend you try Movavi Video Editor – a multi-talented program with a built-in stabilizing function. If you plan on fixing your jittery video but don’t know where to start, just download our software and follow the simple guide to video stabilization below.
