    I stupidly deleted iMovie HD a week ago thinking I'd never need it. Now I need it. I need to rotate a video 90 degrees.

    I have an old powerbook (867mhz 768mb of ram) so I need something that will run on it.

    What is available? I need this ASAP.

    Thanks.

    Well you should be able to get iMovie back from your install disks.

    Quicktime can actually rotate video but don't know if it is in the free version.

    Open the video in Quicktime. Then press cmd+j. Select the video track. Then Visual settings tab then rotate.

    I can't find them - I just looked.

    And it requires Quicktime Pro.

    I need something free - or that is a trial that will let me do it today.

    That worked, thanks!

    Now is there a compression app. It compressed it from 700mb to 145, but I need it under 99mb to put it on youtube.

    Could you not just compress it again or use different settings.

    Or you could try iSquint

    as you have a legit license to run iMovie, you can use sources that would be consitered illegal if you did not have a valid licence. Just saying

    He means that because you own the mac, and thus own a license for ilife, you are legally allowed to download copies of the software via programs/websites that would normally be considered illegal.

    Because I own a copy of the dvd "Joe's appartment" and own a license for it, I am legally allowed to download it from a torrent website. Same rules apply for software.

    Will iMovie compress an avi file? I actually found the iLife 05 disc and it's in my CD Rom drive now..
