Due to my wearing heavy gloves while holding my camcorder, the tether/handle forced the camera into a slight but annoying tilt in a clockwise direction. All the footage thus looks tilted annoyingly to the right. I knew it was happening while I was filming but short of taking off my glove -- not an option when the wind was about -30 or so (at that stage it doesn't matter much if it's F or C) I couldn't change it. Trying to carry the camera while I walked with just my thumb uderneath for support (not using the handle) was too precarious. I see that I CAN rotate the footage after shooting it, but only 90 degrees clockwise or counter clockwise.

 

It's not a professional video, but it's annoying nonetheless. Is there anythig I can do about it now?

 

If not, Apple, if you're listening, could you perhaps work in a feature in which you can rotate an entire video in small increments? I can imagine lots of stuations where that might come in very hady.

 

Cheers.

    Hi

    NO - Not in iMovie - You need FinalCut Pro X to do this - and here You can correct one frame - then key-frame it (one click) and move forward a bit and correct this frame + Key frame it too - Now all in between will try to be in line with those start and end frames. Can make a big difference.

     

    But in iMovie - NO

    NO - Apple near to Zero are listening here (which is a great loss of not harvesting good ideas) - As this is just a USERS trying to help USERS forum.

    No not in iMovie

     

    In FinalCut Pro X - Yes and here You select first frame and correct rotation then Key-frame it - then move forward a bit - correct rotation and Key-frame - NOW all in between will try to line up with first and last key-framed frames.

     

    Yes it makes a significant difference !

     

    If not, Apple, if you're listening, could you perhaps work in a feature in which you can rotate an entire video in small increments?

     

    NO - Apple nearly never is here reading - Yes they mis-out lot's of great info and lot's of brilliant ideas.

    Sorry to double post - but first answer took a tripp in cyber-space for more than 15-minutes - so I formed a new one.
