DaVinci controls regarding stabilization are very limited, and there seems to be no documentation on how to achieve the following.
- Given moderately shaky 100fps footage, one wants to
- produce a 30fps timeline,
- without slowing footage down (no slow-mo is needed for that bit), but
- making the stabilizer use excess framerate to provide better stabilization.
An example of similar approach is various timelapse apps, shooting a normal framerate video and produce a very smooth sped-up outcome.
I have tried using stabilizer on the clip interpreted at 30fps and sped-up 300%, and on the same clip interpreted at 100fps without the speed-up. I have tried cranking up the Smooth parameter and turning off GPU acceleration. However, the outcome doesn’t seem to be improving, which makes me think the Resolve’s stabilizer is not designed to use excess framerate when it’s available.
