I've been handed some footage a client shot for editing and there's some pretty horrendous camera wobble on it.
I've attempted to stabilize it as normal but the result is the background is distorting rather than smoothing.
For example, if I choose a track point in the bottom third of the screen, rather than the whole frame compensating for the movement, the upper third just distorts back and forth. Same in reverse if I choose a track point in the upper portion of the screen.
I've experimented with different size trackers and tracking position and rotation, but it doesn't seem to want to smooth out, and in fact looks worse in some ways than the original footage.
I've been back to some old tutiorials and had a look through some of the posts here but can't seem to find a solution.
