ok, here is something I often want to do given the fact that my digital camera can take .mov files - I want to take movies using the potrait direction (ie vertical), but would then need to rotate the movies so that when they show on a computer screen they aren't sideways. now it is trivial to do this with a .jpg or any other still picture, and it should be possible to rotate movies since they are frames of stills.



Before I go trying to write a program myself and do all the figuring out of how things are arranged in .mov files, does anyone know of a preexisting utility?



short of that, and hints on how .mov files are laid out?

I would like to know the answer too. The techies around here don't know how to fix that - I asked them a similar question months ago.

I remember a friend of mine telling me about altering frames of a movie using macromedia flash. I havent tried, but if you have flash give it a go.

Hey - I'm not sure if your solution worked, but I had a similar problem with a helmet camera that I mounted sideways by accident. clap

The videos were in AVI format and I managed to rotate them and re-render them using Adobe Premiere with no loss of quality. bounce2

If you need any pointers on this please let me know and I'll help if possible.

actually using quick time pro makes rotating movie trivial. I feel silly for having even asked the question now....redface
