Default Video editing software that takes the giggle out?

Anyone know if there is video editing software that will stablize a giggley video?

I took video of my son singing a solo in a Christmas pagent with one hand while holding a camera in the other. The video is pretty giggley and it breaks my heart as he did such a great job but it looks like there is an earthquake going on during his performance. I will never forgive myself.

Hi,

Depending on the level of the shake you can improve the video.

You will need the folowing software:

Adobe After Effects
Magic Bullet Steady Plug in.

Import the footage into after effects and then apply the plug in and you should see an improvment in the footage.

Thanks for the reply Cantona. I purchased pinnacle studio a couple months ago and that had a setting in it to stabilize the video. It did a pretty good job, still a slight giggle but exceptable now.
