    Is there anyway to have an application that all you do is click it, select a file, and then it will basically use an outside program or something to preform image stabilization? I am getting a Flip Ultra HD on wednesday, and I really don't want to open up Final Cut Pro, or Motion just to make the image more stabile. The problem is that being the simple, lightweight camera it is, it records quite shakey (so I've heard). Can you use automator to run final cut or something and do it quickly?

    I'm pretty sure iMovie does it automatically.

    What I mean is like an app for me to click, then it will ask where the file is, then it will just output a new file on the desktop as a stabilized file. I don't want to create a new project then go through all the steps to stabilize it then export it, I want it to be an automated process.

    Creating a project on iMovie '09 is not at all tedious. Letting iMovie analyze the footage for stabilization, however, could take many hours.
