Hi all. I am an Adobe newbie. I am using Adobe Premier Pro 2020 CC

 

I shot a video with my camera in landscape mode, but when I try to view it on my laptop, it appears in portrait mode. In Premiere Pro, I tried to use the Rotation option in the Effect Controls, and this does rotate the video to landscape, but it chops off parts of the video and the video looks like a square instead of a rectangle.

 

It is as if it still maintains the portrait outline, even though the video has been rotated.landscapelandscapeportraitportrait

 

How can I rotate the video from portrait to landscape and not lose the rectangle shape.

 

Thanks in advance.

Go into the Sequence settings and set Editing mode to custom.

Now you can change the height and width: just swap the numbers.
