In this video, I’m going to show you how I stabilize my iPhone footage in DaVinci Resolve 16 (DR16).

With DR16 open, I’ll create a new project, drag and drop the video from a Macintosh folder into DR16, create a timeline and then show you the variations for stabilizing.

They will include Perspective, Similarity, and Translation. I’ll also show you the Camera Lock option. Camera Lock assumes a locked-off shot and does its best to simulate that locked position as it stabilizes the footage. There are also controls for Smooth and Strength that you’ll want to explore.
