What is this guide for?
Rotating something may not be rocket science, but it is definitely among the most tedious and time-consuming tasks when it comes to video editing.
And it’s even worse when you are trying to rotate the aspect ratio for that absolutely adorable, but sadly horizontal video to fit the ever-so-trendy, yet vertical Instagram stories feed without breaking everything to bits.
Or maybe you don’t need to change the aspect ratio, but the otherwise eye-candy video was shot upside down or at a 90 degrees angle?
Worry not, as Animotica is here to save the day! #RealHeroesDontWearCapes.

The step-by-step guide on rotating videos in Animotica
1. If you didn't create your video project yet.
1.1 Launch Animotica.
1.2 From the first screen menu navigate to 'Rotate Video'.
1.3 Pick the perfect ratio for the final video (such as 16:9 for YouTube or 1:1/9:16 for Instagram, etc.). Remember that you can always change the ratio on the fly in the Project Settings.
1.4 Apply rotation options (Horizon, Scale).
1.5 If you choose 'Fit' option, you can apply one of the background effects.
2. If you have already started the project and want to rotate clip on the way.
1.1 Click the Transform button and you’ll see the menu on the bottom of your screen that has the Rotate button. Use it.
1.2 Then, after all’s done, simply click on the Fit/Fill button to scale the video to your preferred size.
Pro tip: the same panel has the options for aligning the video’s angle and perspective. This is a pretty powerful tool, especially for the times when you need to fix a video shot at a small angle.
