How to Rotate Your Video

When you record video on a phone or a compact camera, sometimes you find out (after the fact) that you held it the wrong way, so the video is recorded as vertically oriented instead of horizontal and you can’t view it properly. If you want to keep this footage, the only way to improve it is to rotate the entire movie (or the part of it that was shot wrongly). Movavi Video Editor can rotate video files in almost any video format including MOV, MP4 (MPEG-4), AVI, 3GP, WMV, MPEG, FLV, HD video, and many more. Download this software and learn how to rotate your video in any direction: you can go 90 of 180 degrees clockwise or anticlockwise – whatever you need to correct the orientation.

Step 1: Install the Video Rotating Program

Download the program file and install Movavi Video Editor on your PC or Mac following the installation instructions.

Step 2: Import Files for Rotation

Click Add Media Files to add the video that need to be rotated. The files you’ve uploaded will be added on the Timeline board at the bottom of the program window.

Step 3 (Optional): Isolate the Fragment to be Rotated

If you only need to rotate part of your movie, place the red marker on the beginning of a wrongly-shot scene, select the video on the Timeline and click the Scissors icon. Then move the red marker to the end of the scene, and repeat this again.

Step 4: Rotate Your Video Clip

Click on the video on the Timeline and open the Tools tab. Locate and expand the Rotate and Flip list. Click on either of the two rotate icons to rotate your video clockwise or counterclockwise, respectively. Now you can turn to saving your video or continue editing.

Step 5: Save the Rotated Video

Click Export and select one of the saving options from the tabs in the upper part of the pop-up window. To export the video click Start. And that’s all there is to it! With Movavi Video Editor, you can fix any video that was accidentally shot in the wrong orientation in just a few minutes.
