VirtualDub plugin guide

I choose to write this guide to help out making great videos. Like before – convert GoPro-file with FFMPEG to have an uncompressed video. Download Deshaker plugin. put the .vdf-file in the plugins folder of VirtualDub. Also make sure you have Barrel plugin in the same folder.

Here follows the steps of how to add Barrel effect
01. Now open up a 720p clip in VirtualDub, right-click views to resize (to a suitable level to fit your screen)
02. Move forward in your clip to a position where you have extreme barrel effect(fisheye bending straight lines)
03. Add resize filter by going to Video/Filters (or CTRL+F), press Add and scroll down to resize.
04. Select Letterbox/crop to size and input 1600*900 and press OK
05. Press OK again to preview your settings in the right window
06. Add Barrel Distortion filter and deselect Aspect-ratio
07. Click Show Preview to open up a new window – resize to fit next to your filter dialog.
08. By clicking and dragging in the white area below ALPHA you straighten the lines in the center of the image
09. By clicking and dragging in the white area below BETA you bring back the sides towards center again
10. Play with values until you are saticfied
11. Add resize filter and select Crop with values 18.7:9
12. Add resize filter and select Letterbox/crop to size with 1600*900
13. Add Resize filter and input Absolute(pixels) 1280*720

Done – now go save as AVI.

Here follows the steps of how to add Deshaker effect
You can add these steps after any step above – I put Deshaker as 2nd filter

01. Now open up a 720p clip in VirtualDub, right-click views to resize (to a suitable level to fit your screen)
02. Add Deshaker filter – make sure path to logfile is short like C:\Deshaker.log (create file 1st)
03. I use Camcorder has rolling shutter (default at 88%)
04. Press OK and OK to close filter dialog. Preview the entire filtered movie (right window) by pressing enter. (It will not work if you skip this step)
05. Open Filter dialog again and open up Deshaker settings
06. Select Pass2 and press OK

Done – now go save as AVI.

If you by any chance get the message “This video was not processed in pass1” you have most likely forgot to change logfile – Or you didn’t let pass1 go over the entire clip as it is very important

EDIT:

Here is a video of effects mentioned above.
