No - use something like VirtualDub or similar.
Thanks but I need something for Mac...
Doesn't Apple have one of the i-whatever tools for that? i-video or i-movie or something?
Premiere Elements is best cheapest bet. I think PS CS might via video editing. I know last few versions will.
Thanks, I'll check them out
I've managed to rotate the video in PS CS6 but when I want to save it there are no video file options, only the usual image file options. The only way to rotate the file was to make it a smart object, not sure exactly what that is but could be an issue...?
What to do?
Here are the steps, more or less. I also included a nice link to walk you through a few things. I seem to like to resolve things by helping quickly and also with an "under 5 minute" video approach to learn things. Cheers. - DP
In PS CS6:
1) File > Export > Render Video > Choose options
Thanks Dusty, that worked. Well, sort of. The top and bottom gets cropped but that's better than having to rotate the screen
I know I need to learn more about video formats (and PS) but I tried 3 different outputs, none with great result
The original clip is .MOV (180mb)
export as mpeg-4: bad quality and NO sound (on highest quality), small file (14Mb)
export as .MOV: VERY jerky to the point it's un-watchable but good sound (could be a screen issue?) and HUGE file (5.6Gb)
export as AVI: good quality but NO sound, very large file (2.8Gb)
Not sure why there was no sound in mpeg-4 and AVI. The settings indicated that the sound should be there...

I had this problem too (in LR5) but found the answer. I imported the movie into iMovie as a New Event. Then chose the entire clip, then chose the Crop tool, which brought up a couple of arrows that allow you to rotate it either clockwise or counter-clockwise. Then saved it as a New Project. From there you can share it back out as a .mov or .mv4 file back into your LR folder. Works perfectly: no cropping problem, no audio problem.
If you are using MacOS, you can simply open the video in Quick time and use Edit > Rotate Left or Rotate Right as per your requirement.
Upon closing, it asks to save the video, just give it a name and it will export a new video with the same codec. If you need customize the codec and compression setting. You can use a professional software like Adobe Media Encoder.
But it is not a lightroom subject as video editing has its own technicalities to handle.
