How to rotate a video by a few degrees

It’s a powerful cinematic tool used by such masters as Tarantino, Hitchcock, and others. You can do just as well as famous directors!

Clideo’s all-in-one Video Editor allows editing recordings in various ways. It’s an ultimate tool which can perform almost everything you can think of: cut the recording, merge it with other files, add audio or subtitles, change an aspect ratio, crop option, background color, and, of course, rotate MP4 video by a few degrees, flip or mirror it.

It’s an online service that works equally efficiently for any device and any OS, be it an iPhone, an Android smartphone, a laptop, a tablet, or whatever else. All you need is a stable Internet connection and several minutes of your time.

Here we go!

  2. Tilt the video

    Go to the "Transform" tab on the editing pane (actually, it will open automatically, so you don’t even have to look for it). Find the "Flip & Rotate" section and tilt the video by clicking the "+" or "-" icons. Each click rotates the recording by 5 degrees.

    You can also manually rotate the picture right in the preview by any number of degrees. Select your video and find the rotation handle at the bottom of the yellow rectangle.

    Don’t forget to hit "Fill" to make sure the image fills the whole frame and review if the effect is dramatic enough.

    When you’re fully done, hit the "Export" button and choose the output resolution. Two basic options are free, but for better quality, you’ll have to upgrade your account to Clideo Pro.
