Welcome to the forum.

You will need to apply the fixed Effect>Rotation to get the orientation changed/corrected.

This is easily done in the Effects Control Panel, when you Select the Clip. If you need to apply to more Clips, the Rt-click and choose Copy for the "corrected" Clip. Then, Select all others, requiring the same, and the Rt-click, choosing Paste Attributes.

Good luck,

Not excluding what Bill just informed you ( which is absolutely correct for

making a clip appear Portrait by rotating it) ...the video frame is always Landscape and is determined by the display device / screen.  (eg 4:3 , 16:9 , 1.85:1 etc)

Why do you need to achieve this?

While taking a video, i rotated my camera to get full vertical coverage of a person. When i uploaded it to my PC, it turned out to be horizontal, instead of vertical.

Actually, when shooting a standing subject on greenscreen, some people use this technique. The greenscreen is Keyed out, so one has more pixels of the person, than shooting them in a horizontal format. Obviously, if one is NOT Keying out a background, there will be Scaling and Cropping involved.

I see this more often, where one has to do some odd camera mounting for mechanical reasons.

Going back decades, my wife filmed my last SCCA race with my XKE vertically - she was a still shooter only. I have 400' of sideways footage! Now, with digital editing, I need to have that footage telecined, and then Rotate it. Not such an easy, or inexpensive task with 16mm. I still do not know how she held the Beaulieu with the 400' mag sideways, especially for the whole race, but she managed.

Good luck,

Thank you for your reply. One thing I've learned is you shouldn't ask why someone wants to do something, just answer how they can do it. Only after you've answered the initial quetions should you ask why they want to do it. Sometimes they're asking the wrong question and sometimes I didn't have the imagination to understand why they wanted to do it.

 

In my case I take videos in portrait and want my project to be in protrait so when I import my portrait videos I don't want to have to rotate each one. That's wasteful and silly. This is pretty common now with so many phone apps working in portrait exclusively.

Rotate, scale to fill screen horizontally, and pan up, or down.
