A real simple approach is to try Warp Stabilizer in After Effects. It
has many of the qualities that Shake's Smoothcam had many years ago. It's
pretty fast and very tunable. Best of luck.

> By way of information, the MWA line of film scanners incorporate real-time
> image stabilization during transfer.
> The system uses on screen – positionable cursors to select what reference
> points are being used. One for horizontal movement. The other for vertical
> movement. Sprocket hole edges are normally used.
> This is in addition to the effective, laser based perf detection and
> stabilization that MWA- pioneered and patented.
> That has been augmented by a new before-the-gate sensor to detect changes
> in thickness that could cause a vertical movement when for example a splice
> or splicing tape wrapped around part of the capstan.
> MWA's newest scanner — the FM One Project — has NO capstan, and
> incorporates a two laser approach, along with the real time, software-based
> image stabilization.
> These technologies can do a very effective job of stabilizing the film

> Diamant comes in.
