- Retiming: Fast motion and slow motion will help you place emphasis in the movie, while preserving the sound pitch and naturalness.

Best Stabilizer I’ve Used in 5 Years
This stabilizer is fantastic but frustrating. Since it works so well, I’ll keep the 5 star rating but it badly needs to retain the settings from the previous run or at least have a little configuration file to allow the user to specify the location of processed files only once, not for every file. Also it defaults to “average” quality so if one is stabilizing 15 short clips, one gets to change both the export quality and location 15 times. Even a $5 app should have these features. But the output files are fantastic (or can be based on user experience). If you want a good stabilizer, this is it, but it could easily be made much better.
