Got it! I went to the evil Windows machine at work and, much to my surprise, Windows Movie Maker did the job. Thanks for your advice, everyone!


Okay, strange question. I have a short video that I took, and I had the digital camera tilted to one side because it was of a tree (high and narrow, you see). With images, I can simply use photo editing to rotate them the correct way. Is there a way to do that with common video programs? Or at least with something I can download for free, because of the whole no money thing? Otherwise I'm going to be showing people a video of a tree falling up.

The only suggestion that I can make is to turn the monitor or TV set onto its side.

Or do a Spike-style head tilt ...

I've asked a chap at work here. He thinks you can do it in Flash, or maybe Premiere - but they cost money, so drawing a blank so far.

Windows Movie Maker, as it turns out ... I assume there's a program for Mac, but I was sadly working on a Windows machine ...

I can't remember what the name of the program was but I managed to find one online that was either free...or had a free trial period that worked... unfortunately it was on my old PC which no longer works.

I do remember that it was a very slow process... good luck!

Turns out Windows Movie Maker does the job -- and fairly quickly, too. Much as I usually hate Windows, I have to admit it did pretty well.

I'm not too sure, but you could try Windows Movie Maker (rarely used it in my life since I hate the freaking thing). And I'm pretty sure Sony Vegas has got a 30day trial period. I'm currently using that programme to make my vids, and I know for a fact that it does allow you to rotate the clip. However, I've never used the trial version before so I'm not sure what the limitations are.

Or else just rotate the TV/Screen itself. :)

Windows Movie Maker worked! Which is good, because I was planning to post that video and I thought asking everyone to rotate the screen was a bit much. :-)

This question thread might help:

(Though I think watching a tree falling up might be quite cool)

Well, it wasn't *that* cool ... Luckily, between your link and frickangel, I was led to Windows Movie Maker ...

No idea how to fix your video - as I am a tech idiot. I'm writing to apologize - I was trying to reply to one of your comments on my blog and managed to delete everything.

I'm much better at manual labor than anything computer. See why I dig instead of write?

Yeah, me too. The funny thing about me is that I embraced word processing early, so everyone I know thought I was some kind of computer guru -- even though how to do word processing was the *only* thing I knew about computers ...

Heeheeheeheeheehee. I think a tree falling up video would be way interesting.

One of my friends used to randomly and deliberately turn his video camera over and/or sideways when the party/speech/whateverhewasfilming began to bore him. Some poor girl would get footage of her opening gifts at her baby shower, and suddenly she'd appear in it upside down.

I got it fixed, so I guess you'll have to turn your monitor on its side to see it fall up! But I do like the idea of d eliberately turning the camera over -- it could almost be called artistic, rather than boredom. Too bad I didn't do it on purpose ...

No help here, unfortunately. However I bet the footage of a tree falling up would be funny! (And sorry for the comment spam the past couple of days - I did try to restrain myself! And now I'm caught up - yay!) (And what's with all those exclamation points?)

Windows Movie Maker did it! No problem with the comment spam -- I'm always having trouble keeping up, myself.
