    Sometimes when using the stabiliser in Vegas Pro to stabilise a shaky video
    clip the object in the clip become distorted for a movement. Has others had
    this problem and if so is there a setting in the stabiliser settings to
    prevent this from happening?
    Also is there a way to prevent the stabiliser from cropping the picture
    during the stabilising? I have a feeling that this might not be possible as
    cropping the picture is part of the stabilising process but maybe there is
    a lighter setting so only a small amount of the picture is cropped.

  2. I haven't used the Vegas Pro 11 stabilizer much (or the Pro 10 version
    at all, which may be different), but you are right that to work, it
    must crop (with the amount likely depending on the slider positions
    for the degree of stabilization wanted/acceptable). There is also a
    check box available for including rolling shutter distortion correction.

    as with david i haven't needed to use the stabiliser, but i did read
    there's a setting that 'zooms' the picture just enough to avoid the
    edges showing in frame...

    While a good photographer should not need to use the stabiliser as his
    shots will be steady in my case I' m editing video that was shot by another
    person as a club project. Most of the time the stabiliser is great at what
    it does but nothing is perfect as they say. I may have to experiment with
    the settings.

    Give the original Deshaker (it's free) try.

    for some updated instructions on getting it to work with newer
    versions of Vegas.
