Jittery Footage on the Canon 5D Mark 3

I found that a few of my clips from a recent video shoot were pretty jittery. I'm not sure if the camera settings or me just simply panning too quickly. It's very noticeable when played on a big screen. And how would I possibly fix this in Premiere CC?


Camera settings for this clip:
Canon 24-105mm
ISO 100, F4.5, 1/200

If this was shot in 24p the problem would be that you pan to quickly, shoot either in a higher framerate or pan slower.

The rule of thumb is that an edge to edge pan in 24 fps should take 7 seconds or longer. The pan in this example is roughly twice that speed.

There are exceptions, such as whip pans and tracking an object while the background pans by quickly, but in this example, there isn't anything to distract us from the judder.

Thanks for that rule of thumb. I'll be using it next time I shoot.

To fix, click on the clip and nest the clip, then add warp stabilizer, if still not steady click nest again and repeat. steve

Steve makes a good point. In addition to 24p judder, the camera move is not smooth. Of course, one could use better camera support, like a slider, jib, or Steadicam, or one can apply a stabilization effect to smooth things out.

Note that with stabilization in post, you will need to stretch and crop the final video.
