I have a vertical video at 1080x1920 that I need rotated 90° counterclockwise on export, is this possible though Media encoder? Thanks!
Why not rotate it before it goes to AME?
The video is vertically oriented so when I export versions for previewing I have to export them 1080x1920 so the client can see how the final will look but when a version is approved I have to rotate it horizontally to play in a TV that's been rotated vertically. I have been bringing the approved vertical export back into After Effects, making a new comp, rotating it horizontally and exporting it but I'd prefer to do all of this in Media Encoder because it would save time.
I'd like to second this request.
We have to edit and deliver via broadcast standards, but need to send web previews that are easier on client's necks. Currently we nest the sequences in Premiere before exporting but it would be nice if Media Encoder had the option to rotate the input video.
It could save minutes a year in lost time!
The easiest way I have found was to open the video file in Photoshop. The go to image>rotate image. Then go to file>export and the Photoshop will use the Media Encoder to encode the video.
It's been 6 years. How long does a feature request take?
Hi, as far as I know, we can use VLC to rotate videos now.
1. Right click the video file on your PC and select "Open with VLC" option.
2. Click Tools - Effects and Filter - Adjustments and effects.
3. Go to Video Effects - Geometry - Transform - Select rotate by 90 degrees.
Other ways are also available to turn videos to 90 degrees.
Make your entire timeline into a subsequence. Create a new sequence. Place the subsequence you just created into sequence2. Rotate 90 degrees. Done. I make entire videos for ad kiosks in 1080x1920 - but this causes export problems - 1920 is too wide wort many of them, but I need to edit them that way. Making the entire sequence into a subsequence and rotating that solves all my problems.
Using Photoshop 2021 is still the easiest way I found to accomplish this. Just the steps have changed a bit.
The only bug I found with this is even though I had the performance in Photoshop to use my Graphics Processor and my Media Encoder to use my graphics card CUDA cores for rendering, the render still used my CPU to render the video.
Yeah, but I don't pay $60 a month to have to use 3rd party freeware. There are plenty of ways to do this (even a Reddit bot 🤓), but the OP has a great point that really simple intrinsic operations like this should be possible from within ME. Opening PPro/Photoshop (let alone AE) is entirely too much work for something that should be easy-peasy click-click done. I'd go a step further and say that it isn't remotely unreasonable to expect ME to perfome basic remuxing tasks (add/remove audio streams, etc).
This only rotates the video during playback. This will not correct the source file.
I confirm, filming in smartphone format with a camera requires a 90 degree rotation to be viewed on a computer, it's amazing that Media Encoder does not offer this simple feature.
