1. Open the VirtualDUB application from C:\Program Files (x86)\VirtualDub-1.9.11  (VirtualDub.exe)

With VirtualDUB open, follow this guide to stabilize a video clip:

  1. Open your video clip in VirtualDub (menu: File/Open video file).
  2. Add the Deshaker filter (menu: Video/Filters, click: Add, double-click: Deshaker).
    1. If the Deshaker filter is not listed, download the "

      Deshaker 64-bit  (for 64-bit VirtualDub on 64-bit Windows)" from: and load it manually.

  3. In the Deshaker configuration dialog that appears, select the correct Source pixel aspect and Video type. Then, click OK to close.
  4. Make sure VirtualDub doesn't skip any frames during processing (uncheck menu: Options/Drop frames when behind).
  5. Step through the video in some way. One way is to use File/Preview filtered in VirtualDub, which lets you see all processed frames, but is limited to a processing speed equal to the clip's framerate. To ensure maximum processing speed at all times, use File/Run video analysis pass instead. No useful video is created during this first pass, so there's no need to save the output video.
  6. Open the Deshaker configuration dialog again (menu: Video/Filters, double-click: Deshaker line), and select Pass 2 by clicking on it.
  7. Encode the video the usual way (menu: File/Save as AVI)
