To stabilize (deshake) a video you can use the transcode program normally available for Linux distributions.
Though, you may need to get updated plug-in binaries (read more), if you are getting messages like “[filter_stabilize.so] warning: unsupported Codec: 2″.
Then you go for the first run, which is analyzing the video and generating an info file for future use:
transcode -J stabilize -i shaking.mp4
And then comes the second run, which is the actual image stabilization:
transcode -J transform -i shaking.mp4 -y xvid -o stable.avi
Say, you want to batch create a set of soft links to files.
The first example will not work, as directory and file names with spaces in them will be broken into separate words:
currdir=`pwd`; for i in `ls *.mpg` ; do ln -s $currdir/$i /tmp/destinationdir; done
This example will work just fine:
currdir=`pwd`; for i in *.mpg ; do ln -s "$currdir"/"$i" /tmp/destinationdir; done
- Do not use ls or find to get the file names, instead use the bash shell’s built-in functions!
- Enclose the variable names in double quotes!
