More bellyaching...can we talk about stabilization?
Once again I'm tooling around and bumbling my way around this thing. I did some handheld stuff while walking around town the other night and I wanted to stabilize images.
I went to the trusty ol' YouTube and found a tutorial on stabilization. Once again, like in just about every editing tutorial, it was a fixed image --no real action going on. It was a sunset or something...maybe a few seconds long. A stunning shot and all, but pretty much useless to me as I move around with my camera a lot.
Example: panning over the sign of a local bar/restaurant
I want to remove some of the shake, but a tutorial using a shot that might as well have been taken using a tripod isn't helping.
Is it even possible to do this in HitFilm? If so, does it require messing around with layers, and tracks, and composite shots for half an hour just to stabilize a 3 second clip?
The only other editing software I have experience with is iMovie and GoPro studio. And even iMovie has a "stabilize" option that analyzes the image and does an okay job.
I'm frustrated and I need help.
