Smoovee

1.0.1
16 October 2010

Novel approach to stabilize video footage.

Overview

Smoovee uses a novel approach to stabilize videos, a complex processing problem. Our proprietary software and interface are designed to be user friendly, intuitive and effective. We hope to have achieved theses goals.

Our video stabilization technology requires minimum user input. It segments the video automatically in shots, tracks motion between frames and computes a smooth virtual camera movement. The result stays at all times inside the bounds of the original video. With just one slider, the user sets the effective amount of stabilization that he/she wants to apply. Moreover, Smoovee is particularly effective in case of very strong jitters.

Smoovee has been developed by Cinetis in partnership with the IDIAP Research Institute in Switzerland.

I compared a file "stabilized" by Smoove (whose price is a mistery) with the same file really stabilized with piStabilize plugin for iMovie (pre '08) and iStabilize (standalone app). Smoove is surely faster and simpler to use... but results are clearly worse. The only better feature is to leave unaltered frame size, but if you may accept a minor magnification of the clip, set Zoom to Full and go with piStebilize.

This app works beautifully and is really easy to use. The side-by-side display is spectacular. This app handles shaky movies from camera phones, and also from the Flip Mino video cameras much better than other products I tested. In fact, iMovie09's stabilizer has trouble with rolling shutter cameras when there is panning motion. The app has a real edge when videos are very shaky. Be great to have the possibility to push video on YouTube.

Thanks for your review. Video stabilization products are sometimes really non intuitive. We have put a lot of emphasis on the ease of use. We are glad you liked this aspect of Smoovee ! We have made extensive tests with very jittery footage. Competing software typically zoom too much into the image and "get out" of the frame. With Smoovee, we have chosen another approach where the selected portion of the image always stays entirely within the bounds of the input video. The zoom factor is recalculated for every shot to lose as little as possible of the original. This gives excellent results even on very jittery shots. Your points are well taken though, and we are working already on our next release !
