Like the electronic image stabilization feature in many digital camcorders, this effect minimizes any jerkiness or jitter caused by camera movement. The edge areas of the image are discarded, and the central portion is magnified by about 20% to fill the frame. By adjusting the boundaries of the selected region on a frame-by-frame basis, Studio is able to compensate for the unwanted camera motion.
Studio’s Stabilize effect works by expanding a selected area (inner lines) to full-frame size. The area is adjusted from frame to frame to compensate for slight aiming differences caused by camera shake.
