The Deshaker Parameters dialog enables the user to easily make changes to the filter settings and either update an existing settings file or create a new one.  Detailed information regarding the specific parameters is available from the author's Deshaker website. It is also provided as tooltips whenever the mouse hovers over a specific parameter (see #4 and #5).

1. Note that unlike the original VirtualDub dialog, there is no need to enter the Source Pixel Aspect and Video Type.  These parameters come directly from Vegas once the processing begins.

2. Settings Displayed.  When the dialog first appears, the settings shown (Current) are those contained in the filter settings file selected.  At this point, the user can show other settings for easy comparison of parameters.  These include: Last Used--the settings used the last time Deshaker was run; Default--the default settings;  and Selected--the settings from the file selected using the drop down list.  That list contains all settings files in the VirtualDub Filter Settings folder that contain the name "Deshake".

3. Add Filters.

a. Crop-Resize. If checked, the Crop-Resize button  is enabled which opens the Crop-Resize dialog.  When that dialog is closed, the values are displayed in the textboxes.  Alternatively, crop values can entered directly which in turn are displayed if the Crop-Resize dialog is opened.  Cropping is applied to both Pass 1 and Pass 2 processing.

b. Gaussian Blur .  If checked, the Gaussian blur filter will be added during Pass 2 processing.  Open the VirtualDub2 dialog for additional details.

c. Sharpen . If checked, the Sharpen filter will be added during Pass 2 processing.  Open the VirtualDub2 dialog for additional details.

d. Unsharp Mask.  If checked, the Unsharp Mask filter will be added during Pass 2 processing.  It works the same as the Unsharp Mask filter found in Photoshop.  Open the VirtualDub2 dialog for additional details.

e. Final Frame Size.  If checked, a final resize filter using Lanczos3 will be added during Pass 2 processing.  Values may be entered directly or come from the Crop-Resize dialog. Open the VirtualDub2 dialog for additional details.

4. ? Settings.  If clicked, the button text becomes red and settings information will be shown whenever the mouse hovers over a specific parameter.  If clicked again, the button text turns green and the tooltip is turned off.

5. ? Possible Values.  If clicked, the button text becomes red and a parameter's possible values will be shown whenever the mouse hovers over a specific parameter.  If clicked again, the button text turns green and the tooltip is turned off.

6. Cancel.  Cancels changes and returns to main dialog.

7. Save Settings.  Saves settings and updates the deshaker parameters that are to be applied.
