    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone knew of software that can get rid of some of the
    shaking when filming was done from a car without stabilizer function.

    Best regards,

    BN

    I was wondering if anyone knew of software that can get rid of some of
    The best I have used is Dynapel's "SteadyHand" at
    http://www.dynapel.com/index.shtml

    I've also had good success with Digital Studio's video stabilizer at
    http://www.dv99.com/

    I haven't tried it, but there's also a free VirtualDub plug-in at
    http://biphome.spray.se/gunnart/video/deshaker.htm.

    The stabilizers do some remarkable work but cannot fix everything. Changes
    that happen between the odd and even scan's of a frame will end up looking
    "blurred" even when the video is stabilized. And, part of the video has to
    be thrown away to be able to stabilize it after it has been filmed.

    Still, the stabilizers do a great job, within reason. Just run them on your
    video before you do any other editing work.

    Take care,

    Anthony

    I've had good results with Dynapel's SteadyHand. You can download it
    from the Internet, try it out, and pay for it if you decide to keep it.
    (Pardon, I've forgotten how much - I've had it awhile.) Caveat -
    it cannot fix really really shaky video. You'll have to give it a try
    with yours, and if you don't find it effective you won't have paid for
    software you can't use.

    As already suggested, Deshaker for VirtualDub works great. Give it a
    shot. (It's free!)
