Video Edit Magic 4.47

Rotate Effect

The Rotate effect lets you carry out tasks like rotating, zooming and moving the video.  It is particularly useful for correcting the video orientation.  The move and zoom transform can be used to crop video images. 

The Rotate effect consists of the following effects, which can be applied individually or in combination with each other.

Video Edit Magic avails you with the Take Snap option.  Rotation effect works great for photographs as it allows you to align your photos properly.  If you hold your camera sideways (to get full-body pictures) these rotation effect allows you to rotate your pictures in the proper direction so you can create “video slideshows” of your picture collections.


The Zoom Transform effect allows you to progressively view  larger or smaller areas of an image.  Zooming-in will enlarge the scale of the image and give the impression that you are moving closer to the image.  Zooming-out will decrease the scale of the image, and give the impression that you are moving away from the image.

You can zoom-in and zoom-out of the image by using the 4 arrow controls.  The 2 '+' arrows are for zooming-in, while  the 2 '-' arrows are for zooming-out.  You can specify the factor by which each zoom-in or zoom-out operation is done. 


The Position transform effect allows you to specify the position of the image in the video.  You can use it in combination with the Rotation effect to correct or improve the orientation of the video.  An instant preview is displayed in the Preview window to allow you to position the video better.

The positioning can be done by using the 4 arrow controls.  You can also specify the factor by which the positioning changes will be applied.


The Rotation effect can be used to change the orientation of the video.  You can specify any angle from 0 to 360°.

Background Color

You can specify the background color for the image or the video by clicking on the Choose button.  This will launch a color palette, from which you can select a background color.


The Reset button restores all the settings to the default values.
