Is there a way to flip a video that I filmed vertically?

Asked by pplufthesun (607points) January 1st, 2008

Recently I recorded a video and I filmed a lot of it vertically, but when I tried to edit it I could not change the orientation of the video. Is there a way I can change it?

When you say vertically, I’m assuming you mean rotated 90 degrees?

What editing software are you using?

I have pinnacle studio standard edition. I haven’t tried windows movie maker but it wont allow me to import any of my movie files for some reason.

I know this doesn’t help directly, but iMovie ‘06 has plug-ins (Simple Rotate, Turn Clip) out there that lets you change the orientation. Perhaps there’s a plug-in for Pinnacle or another Windows editor. Include “rotate” in your search.

Quicktime Pro allows you to easily do this.. If you don’t care about spending 30$ to do the job it will work.. Maybe someone can come up with a free way to do this.

Before paying for Quicktime Pro I would make sure the video plays back with Quicktime first. It might choke on some stuff. But a rotate and save is really easy.

Note that because videos are generally longer than it they are tall, if you flip a video 90°, you will either:

-Lose the top and/or the bottom part of the image, or
-Have black bars down the side and not lose any of the picture
