I’m incorporating some footage shot on a rollercoaster into a project and the footage is great, but perhaps a little bumpy. Obviously it’s moving, so i can find a spot to track, does anyone know of a way i can smooth the motion?
To stabilize this shot automatically, you would track the car on which you are riding. If you can’t see the car, you can’t stabilize the shot by tracking. I think you’re SOL, unless you want to try a new tracking point every five frames or so. Ugh.
This is one of those things that could have been solved on location by clamping a rig to the car, keeping part of the car in shot to provide a stable element. Now that could have been stabilized.
