Timelapse stabilization - software vs. metadata

Description

A video comparing the results of two methods for stabilizing footage that has been sped up 40 times. Shot with an iPhone 6 using the Instagram Hyperlapse iOS app. Software detects dominant motion in the footage and moves, scales and rotates individual frames to stabilize the footage. Instagram Hyperlapse running on iOS devices records time-based metadata - the 3D position and angle of the device for each frame. It uses this metadata to stabilize the footage. To get Hyperlapse to keep the source footage, and record at 1080p, I used the hidden 'Labs' mode. To set these controls, tap the main screen four times with four fingers.
