  • A simple and free way to get stabilized FullHD.

    Most of action cameras can shoot 1296p30 and I do recommend using this mode (if available) especially for cams based on Sony IMX206 sensor (GitUp Git2, Xiaomi Yi, SJCAM M20 and others).

    Here is the guide how to get a neat stabilized 1080p30 from 1296p30 video file.

    Get the software (Win platform):

    Follow these steps:
    Unpack and run x264vfw.exe file.
    Run VirtualDub.exe.
    Open your video (File – Open video file…).
    Enable Deshaker plugin (Video – Filters – Add… - Deshaker).
    Make sure ‘Pass 1’ is selected.
    Run pass 1 (File – Video analysis pass).
    Select pass 2 (Video – Filters – Deshaker – Pass 2).
    Add DNR filter (Video – Filters – Add… - dynamic noise reduction (MMX)).
    Set cropping for this filter (Select it in filter list and press ‘Cropping…’).
    Enter following values in filter input cropping window: X1, X2 = 192; Y1, Y2 = 108.
    Select X264 video codec (Video – Compression… - x264vfw) and check ‘VirtualDub Hack’ checkbox.
    Save your stabilized video (File – Save as AVI…).

    I always get an error when trying to save as AVI. Compression error. Saving not possible. What do i need to do? Pass1 works well and after ich select Pass 2 and cropping etc i want to save the file but the error happens.

      Make sure that 'Zero Latency' checkbox in codec settings is also on.

    any chance you could comment on how to adjust the values to apply for neat stabilized 720p video from a 1600x1200 capture?

    Thanks Nutsey worked like a charme. The only thing now is that the output video is like jumping. I don't really know how to explain it. It looks like its cropping all the time so the black bar is ... yeah kinda like its jumping. Do you know what i mean? Here is a screenshot maybe it helps.

      EzR3aL Try different settings for the following Pass 2 parameters: 'Edge compensation' and 'Use previous and future framesto fill in borders'.
