    Hello everyone,

    I have to create some content in Portrait orientation mode for a commercial display. Any tips to create the content in imovie in the 9:16 format?

    How about creating animations in flash. How can I make those to be portrait orientation movies.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I've been creating content for all types of in store displays and always us a horizontal 16 x 9 canvas and do everything so when its rotated 90 it will look proper. I have an external display hooked up to by MBP and have the rotation set to 90 degrees so i can see what the final output will look like.

    Imovie doesn't let me type vertically, as well, when I flip everything using the crop button, it doesn't fill the 9:16 format.

    I still need help. I don't understand how to create proper formatting to fit a portrait orientation movie with Imovie.

    Will final cut pro let you edit and create in portrait mode?

    Final Cut Pro definitely will. Not sure how to do this in iMovie.
