Posted: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?

Posted: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.

Posted: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.
