Does 4k help in image adjustment?

Jul-18,2018

All those extra pixels can also come in handy for stabilizing your footage. Most non-linear editors, such as Adobe Premiere Pro and Apple Final Cut Pro X, include image stabilization algorithms that do a remarkably good job of artificially stabilizing handheld footage and making it look like you shot with a Steadicam. Unfortunately, this process decreases the resolution of the footage by strategically scaling, rotating and cropping your footage frame-by-frame to counteract camera shake. If you're starting with HD source material this means that the resulting video may be noticeably less sharp, as you're cropping out pixels. If you're working from 4K, however, you have a significant amount of extra pixels to play with. Stabilize away!
