I've seen this before, but I want to get to the bottom of it (I hope) so I can prevent it from happening again. I have a video with a few dozen stabilized clips. Looks good, though I want cross dissolves between each clip. That works fine, but sometimes going in or out of the transition causes a jump, as if the stabilization settings were different for the transition. For an example, take a look at this video... especially the start and end of the clip that runs from 00:31-00:43. http://dangoodspeed.com/shared/12n-downtown-schenectady-fire

  • When you're doing the dx, have the stabilized clips been rendered? IOW, depending on the order of operations the dx may be happening before stabilization.

  • Yes they were rendered before I did the dx. One thing I noticed today is that the error happens when different types (inertia vs smoothcam) are used on the clips surrounding the transition. Commented Mar 15, 2015 at 16:06

Instead of using a crossfade transition effect, use opacity keyframes in the video animation menu. Select your clip and press "control + v".
