    I have a strange need for editing software.

    I shot some movie files with my standard digital camera. Without thinking about it on some of them I held the camera vertical, so.. now the movie files need to be rotated. Anyone know of an editing package that can do that. Paid or not doesn't matter.

    Pete,

    Windows Picture and Fax Viewer in XP has two rotate buttons.

    Hi Rilla

    I am talking about Video though. Don't believe Windows Picture and Fax View does Video, or am I wrong.

    Hii WSFuser

    I'll take look at VirtualDub.

    THanks,



    Pete

    Hi Pete

    I use Serif MoviePlus and find it straightforward to use. Lot of features for the price.

    No, you're right. I was thinking digital pictures. That Virtual Dub will do it. It looks like a nice little program.

    And the winner is.......TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress. Naturally it is one of the more expensive, but it does exactly what I need.

    I am going from a digitial camera which takes MOV files. I want to input them, do some simple brightness, constrast editing, and in some cases rotate the image and output a wmv file. TMPGGenc was the only one that does it as a one shot, no converter program.

    Appreciate all the input. Tested all the suggested ones plus some, but wouldn't have found this one with out the input of Strangequark. Wilders sure is great.

    Thanks all.

    Pete

    Glad it did what you wanted Pete. I've used it for ages and can't think of too many times it hasn't done what I wanted it to do.
