Always important to give the Premiere Elements version being used and the computer operating system on which it is running?
So pending that type of information, I will generalize....
first select your video on the Timeline
if you are using version 11 or 12, go to Applied Effects/Applied Effects Palette/Motion Panel expanded and scroll through the expanded Motion Panel to find Rotation.
if you are using version earlier than 11, go to Properties Palette/Motion Panel expanded and scroll through the expanded Motion Panel to find Rotation.
That would be my first choice for doing this.
Please let us know if any of that worked for you.
Sorry I omitted the version: 10. Windows 7Pro
Your instructions work! thank you.
Is there a way to change the clips independently – so they are oriented correctly rather than adding them to the timeline and changing them there?
I never had this problem when shooting with a camera. The phone orients the image correctly in the screen but the recorded data is another thing. I expect there are volumes written about this on the forum.
Thanks so much for your help – and so quickly!!! Truly appreciated. Maura
Thanks for the good news that the suggestion worked for you.
The Premiere Elements rotation option is usually the way to go on this type of after the fact problem.
Others have mentioned just re-orienting the camera during recording. There is probably 3rd party software out there to do the job, but....
I was surprised that all clips correctly oriented once I turned one. That save so much time.
I’m going to play with this so I hold the phone correctly. It must have to do with how the viewing screen will move the image while the data is stored as received.
Again – thanks.
Do you have Time for another question?
If so – is there any way to bring a bit more visibility to a clip taken in low light? I know the definition won’t be good but if I can … it will look better than what I have.
Thanks so much.
Please check out
Your Premiere Elements 10 Windows
Brightness & Contrast
Image Control (Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation)
and then the Edit Effects to fine tune.
Please let us know if any of them helped the low light photos.
Will play with those and let you know if they helped. It will be a couple of days but I’ll get back to you A.T.
Thanks a million A.T.!
