Hello.

Filmed a clip on a digital camera, with the camera sideways. The imported clip, therefore, is on its side. I thought there would be a way (similar to Photoshop's rotate commands) to turn the clip, but I can't find one.

Is there a rotate clip command in iMovie, and in which case where can I find it?

Thanks.

Not without big effort...

Video (PAL, NTSC and HD) has fixed H x W ratio so you are not able to simply rotate the clip (guys correct me if I am wrong).

I am not a video pro but some years ago a friend of mine did this with an application called Cleaner (not cheap) if I remember well.

But you will loose quality and a bit of the screen because you have to zoom the clip so it fits the screen again.

I would make a copy of the clip before trying this. k
