How to stabilize shaky videos using VideoProc

A good video is made by the different shots you take. And even one bad shot can affect how the video comes out. And mostly bad shots can be caused due to bad lighting , a bad camera angle but most of the times something we would consider a bad shot is when the camera is all shaky. Now admittedly this doesn’t occur in big time productions wherein they have all the rigs and mounts to keep the camera secure and stable.

But for someone recording on their mobile device or a GoPro wherein the camera is bound to shake you can’t really do anything about the shaky footage that comes out. Mostly you can opt in for a video editor that will help you recover the shaky video, but these editors are pretty much always pretty expensive.

And the editor we’re using here isn’t exactly cheap mind you, but we’ve found a way that you can get it for free. More on that below…

The video stabilization software we’re using today is called VideoProc. VideoProc is a super fast and super easy to use video editor that comes in with a lot of other features too. But we’re gonna start by focusing on how you can use VideoProc to make your shaky videos usable all over again.

The Tutorial

You’re gonna start off by installing the latest version of VideoProc that you can get your hands on, be it free or otherwise.

  • Click the bar on the bottom of the screen that says “Toolbox” and from the menu that comes up select “Deshake”

 

 

 

  • Proceed to select the part of the video that is shaky. You can highlight this on the timeline, or proceed to manually key in the timestamp

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  • Once you’ve selected the shaky frame you can proceed to tweak the different sliders on the right side of your screen to achieve the desirable outcome.

That’s literally all there is to it. After replicating these steps you’ll be able to recover all your shaky footage and make it all usable again.

Other features of VideoProc

Processing speeds faster than anything you’ve seen before

Video editors normally allow users to just use their CPU to process or render out videos which makes it super tough for the machine. But VideoProc uses a little something called Level 3 Hardware acceleration to produce results that are 40 times faster than simple CPU processing. And the fact that more than 38% of the existing video editors don’t even give users the option to use anything other CPU rendering makes VideoProc simply one of the fastest editors out there.

Make use of a powerful editor, a video downloader, a screen recorder and a media converter.

VideoProc does come in with with a whole load of features, some of which are mentioned above. And it does all of this very effectively. With the editor you can run basic functions like cut, merge, add filters and rotate but also comes in with some brilliant and easy to use advanced features like fish eye correction, a/v sync editing, editing playback speed, making gifs and also gives you the ability to remove background noises if you wish to. With this you also get to download videos from over a 1000 websites, record anything that’s on your screen and also convert any sort of audio/video media files into another.

Now to speak of the price

The full license version of VideoProc costs around $80
