Quick Look At Muvee Turbo Video Stabilizer

When you create videos using handheld devices without support you are probably going to get the jiggles. The more important the video is to you the more likely you will see a whole lot of shaking going on.

Yes, we should have had support. Notice the past tense use in that prior sentence. Before you go buying or downloading anything please double check to see if your current video editing software has a stabilization feature.

In some versions of Windows Movie Maker it is present but in my current version it is not. iMovie folks have it and many of the consumer videos editing programs are adding stabilization support.

If you don't have that feature you might want to take a look at an affordable option. Muvee Turbo Video Stabilizer appears to be focused on the Action cam market. Those folks absolutely need a way to steady their shots.

The Windows OS product claims that it stabilizes videos not just horizontally and vertically but in six directions.

This is a video demo from the company:

They can do this for $19.99?

I haven't tested it out, lord knows I have shaky footage. The software analyzes the video and produces an acceptable version. According to the web site there are other features as well like video rotation and shutter roll control.

I was looking for a support or help page for the software and it seems that the Muvee Forums are where folks can go for help.

If you have a current computer system with enough CPU and RAM to handle the processing this might be a good option.

Hmm. It does have a free trial so this might be worth checking out. Muvee products are designed for novice, press and go users. They specific design their software for ease of use. Those that like to tinker may feel a little blocked or frustrated.

For $20 you are not going to get ProDAD Mercalli level controls. You might not need them. But if the first grandchild birthday videos are shaking like a martini then you might want to give this a try.
