Rotation of camera video


Funfunfun

Question

I have some old videos and I am just starting to use the video apps of emc 10. One video was neat but the photographer had the camera turned on its side to get the scene vertically. Can I now rotate the video?

Maybe I'm crazy but I want to rotate the vid just like you rotate photos! can this be done?

It was taken in thm( from the camera) which I convert to mpeg2. thank you so much! i love this forum!

I just realized that I too needed to rotate a video clip in EMC10. I came across this thread and tried the "color Panel" with "overlay" approach. It does work, but be careful. The "overlay" track does not stay in sync with the "video" track. In other words, in timeline mode, I added the video to be rotated on the overlay track in line with the added white color panel. This works fine to begin with but if any changes are made to any previous panels, such as adding, removing or changing duration, the overlay is no longer positioned correclty to the color panel as the overlay track is not "locked" to the video track. Therefore, any rotated video should be added at end of the editing cycle for the project.

Thanks for the input Gary. It worked.

I'm trying to better understand when to use the internal track feature. Looks like anytime you want to "pin" music, text, overlay or an effect to a particular panel (still or video) you would use the internal track. So if you move a panel, the "pinned" items should move with it. If you use the timeline mode the audio, etc. can be spread across a number of panels but can lose synce with the video track. I think I got it.

 

PS: I just noticed that there is an icon (in Storyline mode) attached to the panel with internal tracks

YUCK, can we beg for a "patch" ! I have another computer with version 8 and I do see that flip option in the effects window, that link may help there 4 sure! Thanks bunches! fun

You don't need to flip; you just need to rotate so part of that linked thread was not useful for you and may have confused you.

 

In essence add a color panel to the storyline; make it slightly longer than the video (trim it back later) and add the video to one of the overlay tracks. Rotate it, you should not have to flip it horizontally.

Ok I'm messin this up!

1) In the storyline view I put a color panel slightly longer than the video in panel one ,

2) Then I add the video in panel two

3) then what?? i have tried to over lay the video onto the color panel but I must be doing it wrong cuz "rotate photo " stays grey

I can almost smell it but maybe I'm confused about how you are using the word over lay in your message, should I be adding another over lay? If so, which one?? thanks for your help!

You don't add the movie in panel two. You open Timeline and add it to the overlay track.
