The latest version of MotionBend features additional Rotation Dampening. Video from handheld cameras is often accidentally rotated, when moving forwards or backwards and especially when panning although it’s not always noticeable. Rotation Dampening adds additional smoothing to the rotation on top of the normal smoothing. Rotation Dampening is taken into account when generating correction to make the motion more consistent. Most shakey videos will look better with Rotation Dampening but you can disable it if you prefer.
