Okay I got it, you're right, two filters were being applied against each other, here's the part I was missing, after configuring for the second pass, on my version you have UNCHECK the pass one box, they'll both appear and the default has them both checked.

You are configuring for the second pass incorrectly. When the first pass is done, give me the EXACT steps you are taking to do the second pass.

Yep,

That's where the error is.

Menu> Double-click Deshaker > Click Pass 2 button > Ok > ">0"

You are adding a second filter to do the second pass, and that is unnecesary. You use the same filter to do both passes.

I am testing out a very small file, 78.1MB video file, deshaked and save the output to larith AVI codec resulting a 1.18GB that is a huge file. I am thinking, hack, it better just try to shoot good video to start with. Avoid this insane huge file and take a long time to deshake it.

Yep, and yet people still shook shaky video. And camera manufacturers still install image stabilizers in lenses, and people still refuse to use a tripod or other camera support.

So...


BTW, if you think Lagarith makes large files, try uncompresed HD. When you encode uncompressed HD, you get a good sense of how much data your camera codec is throwing away so that you can fit an hour onto a little card.

I feel stupid asking this question, but I have scoured the net and just want this stated to me in black and white. Is Vdub Deshaker available for Mac platforms or not? If not I suppose this could be a reason to install Windows?

It is not. There are numerous free utilities like this on the PC platform that are not available on Mac. Some cost money, others are simply not available.

OK, thanks. So is it compatible with Win 7 or do I need to go Vista?

I've run it on XP, Vista, and Win7 just fine.

Can't find Deshaker 2.4

Anyone know why I can only download Deshaker 1.9.8 when there is a version 2.4 available? I have tried numerous times with the same result. I am downloading from here:

http://www.guthspot.se/video/deshaker.htm

Anyone have a better link?

Does the one you downloaded have the rolling shutter compensator? If so, you've got the latest one.

It has a check box for the rolling shutter, but I cannot set a percentage. Also, file says 1.9.8.

Cannot set a percentage. That's odd.

Don't worry about what the file version says. The rolling shutter stuff wasn't added until the latest version.
