How to Rotate an AVI With Avidemux

Save

Avidemux is a free video editing application that is distributed in versions for Mac, PC and Linux systems. The application is compatible with a variety of digital video formats, including AVI. In addition to modifying footage, Avidemux can be used to apply effects to videos. When working within Avidemux, users can rotate their video by applying a filter to the media. But before this change can be made, users will need to transcode the video. When videos are transcoded, they are essentially re-formatted.

  • Launch Avidemux. Go to "File" on the program menu and select "Open..." Browse for the AVI file in the file selection window. Select the item and click "Open" to import the media into the application.

  • Open the "Format" pull-down menu and choose a desired format for the transcoded video. To keep the video in its native format, select the "AVI" option.

  • Go to "File" and select "Save." Choose "Save Video..." from the fly-out menu. A file saving window will load. Enter a file name (using the proper file extension) for the transcoded video and click "Save." A confirmation message will appear when the media has been encoded.

  • Go to "File" and select "Open..." Browse for the transcoded video in the file selection window. Select the item and click "Open."

  • Go to "Video" on the program menu and select "Filters." A "Video Filter Manager" window will load. Select "Transform" and double-click the "Rotation" option.

  • Open the "Rotate" pull-down menu and choose from the "90 degrees," "180 degrees" and "270 degrees" options. Make a selection and click "OK." The video filter will be applied.

  • Go to "File" and select "Save." Choose "Save Video..." from the fly-out menu. A file saving window will load. Enter a file name (using the proper file extension) for the rotated video and click "Save." A confirmation message will appear when the media has been encoded.
