[WPN] YouTube Introduces Powerful Image Stabilization, 3D Tools

In 1999, The Blair Witch Project caused some moviegoers to run out of theaters. Ten years later, Avatar had pretty much the opposite effect. And now YouTube seems to have learned from both developments, introducing an image stabilizer and a 3D tool this afternoon.

Let’s start with the image stabilizer. It aims to smooth the sort of jittery, jerky movements that (in addition to argumentative and whiny characters) made The Blair Witch Project less than mediocre. This is achieved through a “unified optimization technique,†according to a post on the YouTube Blog, and in case you were wondering, a YouTube representative added via email that it’s unrelated to the acquisition of Green Parrot Pictures.

Both the image stabilizer and the 3D tool are live right now and free for everyone to test and employ.

Very nice, way to go!

We already have this image stabilization present in Sony Vegas and another program called vReveal which is GPU accelerated
The idea of having YouTube servers do it for you does seem nice though if the footage was going to be uploaded publicly anyway
