iMovie '09 Image Stabilization test

As Gruber points out, it works best with still or predictably panning shots. Walking is far too distorted a movement for IS to do any real magic on.


(IS kicks in halfway through... I forgot to add some sort of marker for when it happens)

William Wilkinson and mike faved this
  • Tom Carmony PRO 7y

    That's still pretty impressive. Not bad for a first stab at IS in a consumer level software product (that I'm aware of).
  • Andrew Catellier PRO 7y

    Is this Bobby Hutcherson?
  • Neven Mrgan PRO 7y

    Wes Montgomery and Milt Jackson. The song is "Stablemates".

    Stable, like stabilization.

    Shut up.
  • Alex Pasco 7y

    Wow, that works really well! I'm impressed.

    I don't know if this means I'll give up my precious final cut pro, but it's good to see.
  • chromedecay 7y

    Wow. That is seriously impressive.
  • lucasgerome 7y

    Has anyone tried the iMovie09 IS feature with freefall skydiving footage yet?
  • Nathan Walls PRO 7y

    Holy crap. That's slick.
  • Moeskido 7y

    The result looks Steadicam-like. Has anyone run footage through IS twice, to see if it affects any lingering artifacts?
  • YayAdrian 7y

    thats really quite impressive

    Might have to consider getting myself a copy now
  • stefan vandegehuchte 7y

    Do want.
  • Paul 6y

    WOW... I just bought Mac Box Set which includes iMovie09. This will be a clean install on the new hard drive in my MacBook. Can't wait to use this while on the cruise next month.
