Rotate video clips using a free program
Authored by: adrianm on Jan 24, '07 09:00:03AM
I do have QuickTimePro, but I use this applescript to do the rotation:

tell application "QuickTime Player"
	set m to (get movie 1)
	rotate m by -90
	save self contained m in (choose file name with prompt "save self contained movie")
end tell
I don't know if you need Pro to be able to script it... but if not, this rotates the movie -90 degrees and asks for a place for the movie to be saved.
The good thing about this is that it doesn't change the format of the image in any way so is completely lossless.
You can also use any angle, so can, in a crude way, be used to 'straighten up' movies :-)

The applescript works on my Mac without Quicktime Pro

This script works, but with an MPG file from my camera the image is rotated but the movie retains the overall (landscape) proportions where it should become portrait. In other words, the picture becomes stretched.

Any suggestions for rotating and fixing the image proportions?

When I run the script, it looks squished when you run it, but when you save, it's ok.

Also, I don't usually have the save line when I run it... preferring to go to the player and cmd+S.

Maybe that's significant?
