Having a camera that record videos was something I always wanted, however, I don’t have a stabilizer, so even if I have an awesome quality, my pulse movement isn’t helpful. That’s why I decided to take a look and see what options do I have in Linux and found Vid-Stab, which allows me to stabilize the image. vid-stab is a plugin for transcode, so first thing your need to do is to install it:
Now, you only need to download the plugin, uncompress it and install it: (Check the latest version at: http://public.hronopik.de/vid.stab/download.php?lang=en )
And that’s it, now it’s time to stabilize our video. First step is to generate a trf file where the info about the video frame will be stored and then will be used as source to edit the video itself.
Once you get the trf file, it’s time to transform the video:
And that’s it! You can always add more options to improve the output, change the codec or even apply a better movement reduction.
I took the liberty to make a video test and record Gris, our dog. I lost a bit of quality, however, stabilization work just awesome.
