Read Time: 2 min

It's rare that hand-held video footage is perfectly stable. Unless you're using a tripod or expensive steadicam, you can bet that your video needs a bit of stabilization in post-production. Luckily, Apple's Final Cut Pro X has stabilization processing built in.

In lesson from the course Video Production on the Go, you'll learn how to use the built-in stabilization options. You don't need any plugins or extras to clean up your shots, though we do take a look at a third-party plugin, Lock&Load X. The built-in options will be enough for most footage.
