Resolution question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does the output resolution have any impact on video quality?

    For example, if you have a full HD 1920x1080p source file, does outputting at 720p allow any more wiggle room in the stabilisation algorithm?

    If not, I'll stick to outputting a full HD video file :-)

  • The output resolution does not have any impact on the video stabilization quality.  Since the input frames are cropped during the stabilization process, you may see some softness in the final video if the output resolution is the same as the input resolution.  This is because the cropped frames are scaled up to match the output resolution.

  • Thanks Chris,

    That's what I had thought, and the flow on question is, if your source video is 1080p and you output at 720p, will the software do anything fancy to recognise that the final cropped frames don't have to be scaled up to fit anymore?

    Just wondering if there is benefit in opting for a lower res output than the original source?

    Thanks.
