How do you rotate video?


Not sure if this can be done:

I have installed my AIPTEK Mega Pen Cam on its side in my new AP platform. I want to take flight video with it, but the uploaded footage is sideways! Is there a way to rotate video 90 dgrees with any of the freeware (MS Media Maker?) software out there?

Your tried and tested solutions are welcomed!

Cheers

Hi Kahn

I've used Windows Movie Maker in the past to rotate video. Just goto the special effects section and you should be abe to find it there. Windows Xp should have this program in it.

Try Virtualdub


Virtualdub is free. The webpage is not impressive, but it works.

I've done this with Aiptek videos in the "Animation shop" in Paint Shop Pro.

Gotta make the doughnuts
Virtual Dub rocks!

I do not use it to convert movies I did not download into a format readable by my DVD players before the movies are even released in theater's. But if somebody WANTED to do that, they could use virtual dub. I don't even know HOW I know this.

Under Edit Move, click View Video Effects.
Scroll to Mirror Horizontal, Mirror Vertical, or Rotate 90, 180, or 270.
Click and drag the effect onto one of the video clips at the bottom. Won't work on the Collection pane. Have to drag it onto each clip one at at time.
The gray star in the lower left of the clip turns blue after dragging the effect.

This thread is soooo old, nontehteless still relevant to my question:
I've used the Virtualdub filter to rotate a video taken with a Flycamone v2, but the resulting file size is really huge: 10 Gb starting from a 200 Mb video!
Do you know a way to reduce the file size (or a different way to rotate)?
In principle I don't understand the size increase since the amount of information in the video should be the same...
Thanks to who will be able to suggest me.

I'm not a virtualdub user but my guess is when you rotate a clip and recreate it all fixed up Virtualdub is rendering it back to a different file format. YOu are probably starting with an mp4 file of some sort. My guess is Virtualdub is not resaving to mp4 but instead a more easily editable format like an AVI file. AVI files are much bigger in file size. mp4 files are very compressed and very tough to edit. AVI files are much bigger in size but very easy to edit. I upconvert all my files from the goprohd cam before editing. Of course I'm a videoproducer as a job so I have plenty of drive space. This is not uncommon for a file size.

I confirm that I asked VirtualDub to save in AVI format. But even the original file had .avi as extension. In case it was a mp4, shouldn't have had .mpg extension? I'm quite new with video stuffs, sorry...
Anyway what I'm going to do with the rotated video is some editing with Pinnacle Studio, than conversion in mpeg to upload on youtube sooner or later. As far as it will have "regular" dimensions after final conversion (tens of Mb for a few minutes video), for the moment I can survive with a 10Gb file (although I'm still wondering where the additional bytes come from ).
Other suggestions/explanations? Thanks

I am having the same problem. Only I am just using the date/time remover and my files are in the GB's when VD is finished "converting" it.

Cheers,
Steve
