Stabilise engine vibration

PostSat May 15, 2021 12:13 pm

I've tried a number of setting in Stabilisation but cant stabilise a reasonaly high-frequency camera shake caused by the single cylinder engine in a motorcycle I had a camera hard-mounted to. The shakes are not large at all - probably about 1~2% of the frame size.
Each stabilisation test takes a very long time so I would be very greatful for any suggestions.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Thanks for moving this to the correct section.

After looking more closely I've realised the problem with my footage is mainly motion blurring in the frames themelves - not so much between frames.
I did manage to stabilise movement between frames using Translation mode with cropping ratio at around 0.990, smoothing at 0.250 and strength at 1.0. That helped a lot, but as mentioned earlier there is blurring in each exposure which really can't be fixed.
Will improve the camera mounting.

Thanks,
Mike

Software can only do so much - stabilize when shooting is way more efficient.

I have a rule of thumb when shooting.

"Post stabilization doesn't exist."
