Autopano Video - Stabilize and straighten the horizon
This step is really important unless the 360 camera was static during your shooting. It is even more essential to stabilize your video if you are willing to show your 360 video into an HMD like the Oculus or the Samsung Gear VR. This step contains two parts:
- the automatic motion compensation
- the manual adjustment of the horizon (from Autopano Video 2.2, you are able to straighten the horizon directly from the Realtime preview window)
Only Autopano Giga has a tool that helps you remove ghosts
Motion compensation slider
Once the calculation is done you have a motion compensation slider instead of the "Compute motion" button. This slider sets the value of the motion compensation from 0% to 100%.
Low values (0-20%) mean that your are going to compensate high frequency moves (vibrations for example).
High values (> 70%) mean that you are going to compensate both high and low frequencies (vibrations + walking moves for example).
The value set on the slider is a low-pass filter, meaning that frequencies under the slider value will be filtered.
