Dumb and Dumber

I have a friend who went on holidays with his girlfriend, they just got back last week, they have a SD Panasonic camcorder that uses MinDV tapes.
Here's the senerio, his girlfriend decided that the composition would look better in Portrait mode 3:4 instead of 4:3 aspect ratio, and later my friend did the same thing.

He asked me if there was a program to change from Portrait to landscape mode for video.
I said just put your TV on the side. What were you thinking?

Does anyone know if there is a programs? to correct this.

I don't know how much holiday footage there is.

Hi Yung Mah.......

I don't know enough to be able to say "Hi Yung" or "Hi Mah".

Can't help with your pals 4:3 problems, well beyond my league, I'm afraid.

BUT, could you please, PLEASE, click on the "Contact Us" button and update your actual whereabouts, talking to ghosts isn't to anyones taste.

Good luck with your quest.

Hi Chris

I updated all my info on the contact now, so I'm no longer a ghost, sorry, but my website is not up to date, I am leaving to go to Bali in August, and sometime in September or October, I am having surgery on my left shoulder for a SLAP tear, so I will have 6 weeks to recover and edit photos from all my other dive trips, and upload to my website, since I won't be working. I am actually a still photographer but getting into Video.

Any decent NLE can rotate the footage by 90 degrees.

For somebody here who is familiar with the lower-cost NLE programs, is there a "rotate 90 degrees" function within any of them? I haven't touched the consumer apps in quite awhile.

Good question, Chris.

If lower cost NLEs won't do it, then use free software - I just checked, VirtualDub can do it.
