Is there a way to "batch-match" a bunch of time lapse photos that have slightly different focal areas?

I've done a time lapse but I also stupidly forgot to turn off the camera's auto-focus, so some of the photos are of slightly different sizes. Consequently, the video ended up with a bit of jitter in the evening part of the time lapse. Is there a way to somehow calibrate the photos so that they all have the same focal area?

I'd re-shoot but it's not cheap to fly back to Tokyo. Ugh.

Well..... That Sucks. I feel your pain.

Have you ever tried Photoshop's batch automation feature? I use it all the time for large projects. I'd give you a step-by-step, but I'm lazy and this will explain it better.

Also, I'm not sure how many layers you're using, but "Auto-align layers" should help
