Movement artifacts in video sequences can be corrected either automatically, or manually by dragging the mouse. Individual images, selected images, or the whole video sequence can be corrected. These functions can be accessed using the Tools menu when a video sequence window is active.

Although good results can be obtained, it always much better to try and make sure there is no movement in the first place, especially if velocity measurements are going to be made. For fast movements it will probably be better to split the images from frame into fields. There will still be bluring of the image, but this can be reduced beforehand by increasing the shutter speed on the CCD and increasing the light level to compensate.
