Can you rotate video footage 180 in Vegas?

While on a roller coaster ride, I absentmindedly held the camcorder upside down. Can I make the footage right side up in Vegas?

Thanks,

Absolutely! Download my Dunaj plug-in and select rotate. Comes in both, 32 bits and 64 bits. Select the right version for your Vegas.

Pan/Crop allows you to flip it horizontally or vertically - or both if you want to :-)

edit: Adam, thanks for the free plug-in!!
Much easier than using Pan/Crop.

You would actually need to flip it both horizontally and vertically to get the image to display correctly (not as a mirror image).

Another option is to bring up the Pan/Crop window and under the "Rotation" tab set the angle value to '180' using the text field.

don't flip in pan crop, just rotate it.... you don't need any addtional plugins.

. . . and finally, you can set the output to be rotated in the project properties, useful for signage.

If you just want to rotate, why not use the media properties - rotation? I think this is the easiest way

Another example of Vegas offering multiple routes to achieve something.

Adam, I don't think everyone gets what your plugin is about! It does seem to make the job a lot easier and I can see why shooters with 35mm adapters would be keen to use it. Thanks for making it available - and free.

There's another HUGE difference between using Pan/Crop and any other effect - especially if the effect can zoom in! Pan/Crop will use the FULL resolution of the media where effects will only affect the video screen size.

What are you talking about? All my plug-in does is reverse the order of the pixels. And, as any plug-in, it can be applied to the media itself before it is even added to the track, so it applies to the full resolution.

Using pan/crop is an overkill. It has many variables and as such is slower than a plug-in that does only one thing.

Always use the simplest tool to accomplish what you need. Anything else is like putting a nail in a wall with a jackhammer.

Adam, I'm not saying your tool isn't useful. Most people will apply it directly to an event on the timeline. As such, it's now working with VIDEO OUTPUT resolution and not necessarily the full resolution of the clip. I didn't mean to indicate it might be a hindrance in this one particular situation but could be an issue - especially if the plugin zooms in on the clip. Using Pan/Crop will zoom in using the full resolution. Using Track Motion to do the same thing will not - for example.
