In mirror effect, set Effect In and Effect Out to 0. Move the slider bar to Bottom. That should flip the clip right side up.1.6GHz power PC G5, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2011 9:10 AM (in response to Rich839)its actually 90 degrees from upright, so its at a right angle the video that i took. It goes into iphoto upright but it goes into imovie at 90 degrees.
so its like i need a quarter turn not just upside down?

Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2011 9:27 AM (in response to Scott Malone)You can do this using Quicktime Pro 7:
Open MOV file in QT Pro (QT 7.6.6)
Window -> Show Movie Properties
select "Video Track"
select "Visual Settings" from lower window
check "Preserve Aspect Ratio"
Click on appropriate rotation icon (MOV rotates!)
Click back on the open MOV in Player Window
FILE -> Save
You can also do this using TransformMovie, available here:
Also, MPEG Streamclip can rotate video while maintaining the aspect ratio as well as the interlacing when converting to DV, which is what iMovie prefers as an input:
There is also a plug-in for iMovie from GeeThree called rotate/scale that might do the job:

Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2011 9:38 AM (in response to Klaus1)have been using the plug in from gee three " rotate" but it does not seem to maintain aspect ratio when rotating.

Currently Being ModeratedApr 13, 2011 9:44 AM (in response to Scott Malone)what is most interesting is that if i open the file in regular quicktime it plays " upright" when i import it or drag it to imovie it puts it at a 90 degree angle view?
so when its in quicktime viewing it --it looks fine? huh

Thank you! I spent 3 hours trying to flip my video and reading other articles. Your tip did it!
