How to use the stabiliser?
on Jul 6, 2014 at 5:37:48 am

Ive done some google searches on how to use the stabiliser function in Sony Movie Studio Platinum 12. However, I can only find tutorials for version 10 and 11. With those, you can access the stabiliser by right-clicking on the clip but when I do that with version 12, I don't see the stabiliser option.

You need to add it as a Media FX in Movie Studio 12.0:
  1. Right-click on the Event and select Media FX...
  2. From the Plug-in Chooser window select Sony Stabalize
  3. Press the Apply button.
That should do it.

Thankyou John. Accessing the stabiliser is quite straight forward. I tried it out on one of my clips but the resultant cropping is a lot more than what I expected. It certainly got rid of the camera shake but at the same time it introduced a panning motion which is not what I wanted. And despite me creating some space between this clip and the other clips on the timeline, the stabiliser effect was applied to other clips next to it - again, not really what I wanted. Are these 'side effects' easy to correct?

You need to adjust the Stabilization amount. Less stabilization yields less cropping. This can be controlled by you.

Let's start by getting our terminology correct so that we know what we are talking about. There is nothing in Vegas Pro called a "Clip". Other NLE's may use that term but Vegas Pro does not. I don't know if you are talking about Events when you say "clip" or about Media when you say "clip" so let me be very specific using Vegas Pro terminology:

The timeline contains Events and the events are backed by Media. I assume you mean Event when you say "clip" because events are what's on the timeline. Stabalization is a Media FX. It affects the entire Media file. Any Events that are backed by that Media file will also be stabilized. There is no way around this other than to render out the stabilized event and drop the stabilized footage back onto the timeline and remove the Media FX from the media so that other Events are not affected.

I hope that's clear. if not, feel free to ask more questions and I'll try and clarify.
