Just got back from a vacation and have some AVIs that I shot on my digital camera. I want to edit these but some of the were shot vertically instead of horizontally. Does anyone know what program I can use to rotate these? Can't find a feature to do so in iMovie - using a 3rd party program is probably the way to go.
My girlfriend shot a short movie with my digital camera and she had it turned sideways, so you've got to turn your head to view it right. I need to rotate it 90 degrees counterclockwise. I've got quicktime pro 6.whatever (the newest). It's an mpeg if that matters.
I have recently imported some photos from my camera, some in portrait some in landscape. When I preview the photos, the portraits automatically rotate in order to be on the upside. But when I use it as wallpaper, it doesn't rotate. Is there anyway to make all the portraits rotate for wallpaper?
yesterday I received my 24" ACD and really is a work of art, it is beautiful in every aspect. Color balance, hue everything is very well reproduced. Anyways at night I used iklear to clean off some smudges that I had left on the screen due to the install and placing it in the right place on my desk. I used the iklear with the screen off and cleaned it with the microfibre cloth that it comes with and started noticing this pattern that started appearing of horizontally continuous lines. Also with this some very weird smudging appeared and was very hard to get rid of. So after 20 mins or so of polishing with the cloth it came with, they went away but they appear once you apply artificial light from a flash light. I called apple and they of course knew nothing of this, called the apple store genius and I believe some know and some dont. I called iKlear and they have received some calls about this and offered me a different cleaner and they sent it to me at no cost that they say will take the pattern and smudges off. They say it is something or some sort of residue from the paper cover that covers the display in the packaging, and if you look and compare this you will notice it does have the same pattern. I have read on couple of places including the apple support forums where they have experienced this same problem and hope to bring the solution to light here. I have read everywhere from using clear windex to using 70% isopropyl alcohol and I do not want to try this due to the harsh chemicals these contain unless of course this fails.
My MacBook Pro3,1 (early 2007) produces a screen of narrow horizontal bands of black and white, with a few scraps of pale blue and a few fragments of letters, but ONLY when booting from the original install DVD. The displayed pattern has a narrow vertical line in mid-screen, with one side of the displayed pattern shifted up (or down) by the width of the horizontal bands. This display is unreadable, and therefore unusable.
Apple serviced the MBP's defective NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics processor in 12/2010. A year earlier they replaced the SuperDrive.
In May 2011 I replaced the Apple Memory with 4 GB of Kingston memory.
The MBP boots off of the hard drive into SL 10.6.8 with no problems.
In preparation for an upgrade to Lion, I booted off of the original Install DVD into the Apple Hardware Test, and ran one pass of the extended test. It took about two hours. No problems were found. Next, to use Disk Utility to check/repair the hard drive structure before the upgrade, I restarted while pressing the C key to boot from the Install DVD. The DVD was accessed, the grey Apple screen displayed, but at the end of the boot process the striped display appeared instead of the expected system installer display.
This Install DVD boot failure is repeatable.
I have rebooted with no problem from the hard drive.
I have rebooted off of this Install DVD, but into the Apple Hardware Test (D-key pressed), and rerun the short test.
I have reset PRAM and SMC, but the problem remains.
It is possible that the Install DVD was not used since the 12/2010 graphics processor repair, until now. Although I do not intend ever to use the Install DVD to roll back to MacOS 10.4.9, this is the tool I'm supposed to use to repair my system hard drive.
I'm baffled because this problem only appears when booting into the installer program. Is it possible that the repair of the graphics processor (or even the SuperDrive replacement) introduced an incompatibility between my MBP's hardware configuration and that expected by the Install DVD
I recently developed a scrolling problem with my Mighty Mouse. It started to only vertical scroll in one direction. I reinstalled the software and it did not help. So, I called Apple tech support. While waiting on the line, I decided to press quite hard on the scroll button and try to scroll. That cured the problem, after that it only required the normal light touch to work properly. I do not know what was the cause of the problem, maybe dust(?), in any event it is working fine now.
I have been looking at the videos showing the multi touch track pad and was wondering what program they are using to demo the multi touch as i cannot get the trackpad to rotate like in the video. i am opening the pics in iPhoto.
When I upload pictures, the thumbnails won't show the picture, just the dotted line outline for all thumbnails.
Also, when I rotate a picture, it won't hold the rotation. After I have rotated it, I go over to iMovie to put the picture in it's spot, and it generates back to it's original direction before I rotated it.
Can I rotate an image a few degrees, rather than 90? Preview does only 90 degree increments and I don't have a photo-editing program. I have MS Office for Mac, and Word has a feature called Free Rotate on the Drawing Toolbar, but it's not supported.
I'm not sure exactly what the appropriate terminology is here, but what I'm looking for is an app (not necessarily FCPro) that allows dynamically rotating or "straightening" a video taken with a head POV video camera (i.e. GoPro, et. al.)
Situation, you are sitting with a head camera strapped to your head (looking appropriately geeky or stupid, whichever), and recording video. As you do so, your head looks left, right, and due to the environment, you may tilt your head 20-45 degrees to get the view you want to see (NOTE - what I/me/myself want to view with my eyes - camera is "along for the ride" so to speak). Then you look out "level" again, etc. Now look to the other side, rotating your head again, etc. (wash, rinse, repeat).
I'm wanting to take "head tilt" out and keep the video "level", based on some reference/key frames. Is there a specific app that can do this without destroying too much quality? Does FCPro even accomplish this? This is NOT a case of stabilization, I need to dynamically rotate the video to make the video appear level/straight, even though the camera was tilted, etc.

For some peculiar reason, my desktop pictures do NOT change / rotate on my secondary display.
I have a MacBook Pro 15" (Late 2007) running Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and I have dual displays. My primary display (the MBP screen) DOES change / rotate picture every minute, but I want my secondary display to do the same.
It seems that restarting does fix it, but only temporarily. I think it might have to do with plugging/unplugging the secondary display and sometimes if it's working, I disconnect and reconnect the monitor and then the pictures stop rotating.
All my desktop picture settings are correct in System Preferences. I tried unchecking then rechecking the "Change picture:" checkmark, but that doesn't fix anything.
I also tried clicking on different folders in the left column of the Pref Pane, then clicking back on my chosen desktop pictures folder.
I just scanned some negatives (about a 3 hour endeavor) and when I rotated some of the images in TIFF format in Preview, there is a pause as it loads in the information, and then the photo turns black. I tried running it in Photoshop and the images are still black. Is it because the file size is too large so preview decides to throw away all of the information? Are there any ways to get these photos back?
Info: Preview, Mac OS X (10.7.3), photos turn black when rotated
I've recently upgraded to Lion and have found that Quicktime movies and embedded Flash movies won't work. With the embedded flash all I get is a black box, and with quicktime movies, such as the ones on the Apple website, I get nothing - the irony of not being able to watch movies on the Apple site with my Apple iMac gives me a little chuckle. Anyways ....... I've been reading thread after thread and trying lots of different things but nothing works. I've got this feeling inside that says it's something simple but just can't seem to find it.
How do I get itunes to import video? I'm on itunes 9.2. When I click on Library/Movies in the upper left, I'm taken to a page that wants to connect me to the itunes store. I don't want the itunes store. I want itunes to find and recognize my own movies folder. I want to import into itunes video content that's already on my imac, so that I can transfer it to the iphone. I tried pressing the apple key + O to add media to the Library.
I have a bunch of MiniDV tapes of my kid, and I need to first, get them off the tapes and onto my Mac, and second, ideally, organize the footage. WIth transfer, its easy, I guess I just have to use the firewire. But is there a clever software, that could help me organize this stuff, much like iPhoto or something?
I'm in the process of making a presentation in iMovie, and I am using photos and movies from iPhoto. The pictures work just fine, but I can not get my videos to import into iMovie. I've tried restarting both iPhoto and iMovie, and I've had no luck. The files are .mov, which I know are compatible with iMovie because I've used them before. However I did a test video and it was MPEG-4, and that imported just fine into iMovie. So it appears it may be a format issue but I've used .mov in the past so that has me stumped. I could re render the video in MPEG-4, but the video was a rendering of the whole building in HD, so it took about 24 hours to render, so I don't want to do that again. If I do have to convert it, what program can I use to convert it?
