The description in the help and tutorials document for this effect indicates that selecting limit to zoom will limit the degree of stabilization applied to the selected bounds of zoom. The intent is to limit the appearance of moving edges in the final video. I have a dive video where I am attempting to use the stabilizer function. I believe I have entered the stabilization parameters correctly (Smoothing 24, use original background, zoom 121, correction limit to zoom). I save the video as an MP4 file using the default settings. I view the resultant file in Windows media player and all the edges of the video dance in and out of the image. Am I doing something wrong or are my expectations wrong? Help!
Ideally you should set Smoothing and check the Limit to Zoom box only. Do not set the Zoom level.
