Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Stabilizing video, part of iMovie 10.0.2 Essential Training.
…Probably one of the more useful features…of iMovie is the built-in video stabilization.…Unlike professional videographers casual shooters like myself probably…don't use a tripod as much as we should.…And I think we've all been in editing situations where…we want to use a specific clip in our movie.…But the footage is just too shaky from being shot on a hand-held…camera or out of a car window or for any number of reasons.…iMovie's stabilization capability can make previously unusable…footage useable and it's really easy to do.…For this example, let's use this footage of…the Appalachian Trail Conservancy sign that I imported earlier.…
If you recall, this is actually playing in reverse because…I wanted the shot to zoom out instead of zooming in.…So here's what it looks like right now.…So yeah, that's pretty shaky.…Let's see what iMovie can do with it.…To stabilize a clip, it has to be in your project timeline.…You can't stabilize a clip that's in your Event browser.…So with a clip selected, I'll open up the Adjust bar.…
