Chapter 13. Advanced Editing Techniques > Using motion stabilization

Using motion stabilization

If you shoot footage using a handheld camera, you will probably end up with shaky shots. Unless this look is intentional, you’ll want to stabilize your shots to eliminate unwanted motion.

To stabilize footage, After Effects first tracks the motion in the shot. It then shifts the position and rotation of each frame as necessary to remove the motion. When played back, the motion appears smooth because the layer itself moves incrementally to offset the unwanted movement.
