So, I am doing a couple of iPhone screencast tutorials, and since most of the audience will actually just watch this on their iPhone, I wanted to leave the video vertical as-is and simply add in some audio on top, which I've got all set in iMovie for iOS. The only problem is it automatically reduces the size greatly to force the rotation. Normally, for any video watching on a screen I know that makes sense but in this case I actually do want to keep the video vertical. Is it possible to force iMovie to do this somehow? Thanks for any tips.
Figured out a workaround, just have to rotate in crop view in iMovie so it looks sideways there. Then, after exporting out I re-open it in Quicktime, rotate it there back upright and export it one last time. Voila, sidebars gone and vertical video intact. Makes for a bigger file size but it works.
