How to use ReelSteady GO

by GoPro on ‎05-29-2020 05:16 PM - edited 4 weeks ago
ReelSteadyGO is designed to take your shaky GoPro footage, and inject gimbal-like stabilization into it.

Before getting started, it's important to note that your video files must meet the following requirements in order to work with ReelSteady GO:
  1. ReelSteady GO supports GoPro media from the following HERO cameras:
    • HERO8 Black
    • HERO7 Black
    • HERO6 Black
    • HERO (2018)
    • HERO5 Black
    • HERO5 Session
  2. Your video files must not be recorded with on-camera stabilization enabled. You will receive an error message in the app otherwise.
  3. ReelSteady GO supports videos with 25fps (frames per second) or higher.

  1. A window will open allowing you to select your file that you'd like to be stabilized. Make sure you follow the guidelines above to ensure you're selecting compatible videos.
  2. ReelSteady will then check the metadata of your file to make sure that it can be stabilized. If ReelSteady cannot process your video for any reason, then you will receive an error message which you can learn more about here.

  1. ReelSteady uses an automated sync process to determine the shaky points of your video and smooth them out. You can learn more about sync points in the video below:
  1. Once you've set the right sync points and have your desired trim, select "Save Video". ReelSteady will immediately begin rendering, and the playhead on your timeline will slowly scrub across your entire video as a sign that the process is coming along. Once it's finished, you'll receive a message in the app letting you know.
