Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Cropping and rotating clips, part of iMovie for iOS Essential Training (2014).
…Back in the previous chapter, when I was…talking about shooting video with the iPad or with…an iPhone, I mentioned that you should be careful…to make sure you're shooting in the proper orientation.…But at some point or another, you're likely going to end…up with a movie that was recorded in the wrong orientation.…For example, I have this clip here in the…media browser, and as you can see, it's sideways.…Fortunately, this is really easy to fix, but in order…to fix it, it has to be in the project.…So, with it selected, I'll add it to my project.…Next, make sure the play head is anywhere over the sideways clip,…so it shows up in the viewer, then take your thumb and…index finger or any two fingers of your choice, and rotate them…clockwise or counter clockwise in whichever…direction you need to rotate the clip.…
And, you could continue to do this if it takes more than one rotation to…get your clip to the proper orientation, for…instance, if the clip is completely upside down.…Now, bear in mind that, because you're rotating the version of the clip…
