Stabilize the annoying shaky video : in this class, we are going to stabilize checking video through rap stabilizer and civilization effect. Stabilization is clearly hit trial and error technique. It only works for videos with little jerks chicness back and forth movements off different parts off the video. Remember, you can utilize these effects according to your requirements and choices. I repeat once again my statement You can utilize the effect according to your requirements and choices are clustered. M I have symbolized this shaking will you through grab stabilizer. Just look at this video. Then we will practice to stabilize this shaky video. Enjoy it now. I done on my stabilizer effect, which I have used managed. Okay. At my second try, I have stabilized this shaky video with stablization effect. Now observe the stablization off this video way. Start out practiced to stabilize any video tab stabilizers but before going toe start our practice to discuss some verities about stabilization plan stabilization effect. Denard works that Stablization does not work then hotel with extreme cheapness for daily with low light stabilization affects Du Nord works well for David delivery effects Note we do not get stabilization off the shaky video through all off sparks. We get stablization off a shaky video through only some parts. Keep Remember that it is better to have Portage waited more friends for second. Because mawr FPs is equal to more stabilization. It is a separate and totally different topic. We are not going to discuss this topic here, but keep remember more at yes, it will do more stabilization and what it should have Higher quality At least four. They should have alleged equality to get better and maximum results. So we start our past try our videos should be selected. Then we are going toe apply stabilizer web stabilizer, our civilization motion. If you not the trigger on your affect, Grenell, then you board find that effect from box based motion tracking are you can call toe window and here click on Trekker. Then you will find regular on your perfect panel. Now we are applying. That's travelers on our video. Only click on Rab stabilizes. It will start initializing to stabilize some parts are chicken with you Now I am speeding up a little bit My video for you Now almost. We have got sterilization off shaky with you. There are different options. We can utilize according to our requirements and choices. Look at here. There is smooth motion effect and no motion of it. If we click on no motion, there will be no motion, no movement. It is best for that. We use there were utilized right board so you can fly any video that have hooted Dr Board. But now we are utilizing smooth motion. Look at her smoothness option. We can decrease our smoothness off. 25 2010% are even 5%. We reduce muteness according to our requirements and choices that stablizing methods. There is substance. Rep is default option perspective Option covers less parts, off ticket, video position, scale and rotation option covered only position to kill and rotation force off the chicken video position is very, very limited option to get civilization off any video. So in our dis practice, we are utilizing subspace script for option. But once again I repeat my statement. You can utilize these options according to your requirements and choices. Fatal scale. We are not realizing deception also you to our requirements Here. Four options are available. Stablize brought artist scale is default action. So it is best according to our choices for? Choose this. Here I am giving you a bonus tip. Get Stablization better and better check this mark. Retail analysis. It will start detailed analysis off our video. So this is Oliver. Stab stablizing practice part months again. I repeat this important note you can utilize these are all out. Other options according to your prices requirements. Everyone who does not get stabilization through Rep stabilizer. So now we start our second try to create a new composition at five seconds. No, stabilize this video with Stablization. Effect is a little bit jerky. Jedi. There's started select video click on Stablization Stablize Motion. Then see this sign off. Rectangles are scared. I still a little bit. I want to drag this pest point now. I clicked on petition also. Then then we fight another track. Quite just got back point to how I want to drag a con trustee Specific point getting on analyzed by words if you have like Okay, this is the middle drop. That ball sterilization effects is that we do not get actual side off our video after applying stablization effects way. Just our escape so that this'll kind off scale Met Get produced So we're just scaled up to 100 cranky. So see the defense. It is shaky video. Take your yourself our nice time and keep practicing after learning. 3. Point tracking : babbling who played this past right? Then we will create this. Her second level. This'd a little fancy. This is absolute beginning off motion tracking Percy Evans. I am already important by project video on my product panel. I have set my composition at 10 seconds. We goto our affect panel. There is record. If you do not find this kind off effect, then go to your window. Fuck Space motion tracking. Okay. It will become at this place. Remember, video should be selected. If you want to try motion on this video, click on track motion venue. Click on track motion. You'll find these kind off tangled. That is if. But every can really rectangle scale a little bit to get perfect tracking. This is our memory. The tangled with actually drag their specially quiet.
