Rotating a Movie Clip
One final editing technique that can enhance a clip in your movie project is to rotate the movie clip. iMovie lets you rotate clips in their orientation by 90-degree increments.

- Click the Adjust button.
- Click the Crop tool.
- The Crop controls are displayed. You can rotate the clip clockwise by 90 degrees by clicking the Rotate the Clip Clockwise button. You can rotate the clip counterclockwise by 90 degrees by clicking the Rotate the Clip Counterclockwise button. Click multiple times to rotate the clip by 90-degree increments.
- To apply the rotate adjustment to the movie clip, click the Apply Crop Adjustment button.
If you want to remove the rotate adjustment, click the Remove Crop Adjustment button.
