Filmmaking is an extremely demanding job. It requires a level of professionalism like no other. You need a perfect product at the end of it all to make it worth it or you’re just simply going to be slated by everyone and everything who sees your work. And that’s just how it is. And sometimes you’re just in situations wherein it’s practically unavoidable to not have a shaky video. It may be that you’re trying to record an active scene wherein the camera you’re using is attached to a moving object. You may be using a GoPro to record, or maybe you recorded on your mobile phone and your hand got a little shaky. There are a hundred scenarios wherein you could end up with shaky footage but the outcome remains the same.
Many will tell you that that’s the end of it all. That you’re gonna need to head out and reshoot the entire thing all over again. And isn’t that convenient? But we’re not gonna tell you that. Because we have found the perfect video stabilization software available on the internet. And that’s not even it. We’re going to tell you how you can get this $80 software for free.
Now we’re not ones for beating around the bush so we’re gonna get right to it and tell you more about this software. This little bundle is something called VideoProc, and as we mentioned earlier, VideoProc is primarily a video stabilization software that also comes in with a bunch of other features that we will talk about after we teach you how to stabilize a video using VideoProc.
How to stabilize a video using VideoProc
Well for starters you’re gonna have to install VideoProc on your device. And we know it’s obvious but we find it to be better to not ignore the obvious rather than explaining it in the comments below.
Anyway, once you’ve downloaded and installed VideoProc from their website, fire it up and follow the steps below.
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 desired outcome.
Here’s a visual representation of everything we’ve just talked about:
Now let’s take a brief look at all the features of VideoProc aside from Video Stabilization.
Witness Processing speed like never before
VideoProc allows users to use GPU accelerated processing which in hand is about 20 times faster than softwares that only work on CPU based processing, but what really sets VideoProc aside from all the others is the fact that it uses Level 3 hardware acceleration that is powered by Intel, AMD and NVIDIA to give you results that are 40 times faster than anything on the internet.
The software also functions as a screen recorder, and a video downloader and converter.
Apart from doing everything we’ve spoken about till now, this software also serves up the purpose of being a screen recorder that allows you to record gameplay or tutorials on your PC. VideoProc can also download and convert videos from over 1000 different websites and store them onto your device.
A powerful editor
VideoProc also gives the users access to a pretty powerful editor that can perform all of the following functions:
Add various effects/filter
Add SRT or subtitles
You also have access to certain advanced features that allow you to fix fisheye, remove background noise, and also control the audio-video sync of the video.
VideoProc is giving away free licensed copies of their Video Processing and Editing software till 4th June, 2019, but that’s not it! You can get a chance to win the Go Pro Hero 7 and the DJI OSMO Action in their sweepstake.
