Shooting video is just the first step to create a great video. After you have taken a video, editing the footage in after effects is an inevitability. When you get grainy or shaky footage, removing grain and shakiness is necessary to get a neat, clear, and stable video.

This post gives you a step-by-step guide on how to fix grainy or shaky videos in a simple way. You don't need to be a techie or learn about the confusing after-effects tutorials. Just install a video editor on your computer and copy the grainy or shaky video from your iOS/Android phone, camcorder, digital camera, or other devices to the computer, you can then use the editor to denoise and stabilize your video by clicking a few buttons.

The video editor we are using here is Video Converter Ultimate. This program is designed to help people to create pro-level videos without professional training. With its noise reduction and video stabilization effects, you can easily remove grain from a video or remove shaking from a video.

Step 1 Add a shaky video into Video Converter Ultimate.

Step 2 Check the Reduce Video Shaking box. Just like removing video noise, you can change the format, resolution, save path and preview the video in advance.
