To rotate a video or image, simply add the file to your Create project and drag it to the timeline. Click on the clip in the timeline so it is selected. In the Transform menu that appears, under Rotate, click the 90° left or 90° right buttons.

See below for a step by step guide with images:


How to rotate a video

First, start a Create project and add your video or image file to the project's media library, then:

1. Drag and drop the video or image into the timeline

If it's not already there, drag and drop the video or image from the media library into the timeline at the bottom of your project.

2. Click on the clip in the timeline

The clip will be highlighted when selected and a Transform menu will appear above, as shown here:

2. Click the 90° Left or Right Buttons

Click on 90° Left arrow to rotate your video counterclockwise 90 degrees, or 90° Right arrow to rotate clockwise 90 degrees. 

To rotate the video 180° so it is upside-down, simply click one of the 90° button again. That's what we've done for the below example video:

3. Close the Transform window

Once you are finished rotating, simply close the Transform menu by clicking the X in the top right.

NOTE: You can also flip videos or images horizontally and vertically - see this flipping videos article for more information.


Undoing a rotation change

You can return the video to its original state at any time by selecting it in the timeline again and clicking the 90° left or right buttons until it is returned to its original rotation.

Alternatively, drag and drop the original video into your timeline again from your media library.
