Q: Last week, I shot a birthday video for my neighbor. I had to turn the camera on the side to include everything in the shot. I can video the video right on the camera, but can’t make the change permanent. How can I rotate the video in Premiere permanently so the neighbor can watch it on her computer? Please give me a brief guide. Thanks! - Cliff from Adobe Forum
