On page 29 of iMovie 4 & iDVD 4 for Mac OS X: Visual QuickStart Guide, I wrote the following tip:
- Remember that a camcorder isn’t like a still camera. I’ve seen people rotate the camcorder 90 degrees as they would a still camera in an effort to shoot a “taller” image. Unfortunately, no matter how you shoot, the end result will still be a horizontal image – it’s not a print that you can view vertically.
That said, your footage can be savaged. See Chapter 8 to learn how.
As was pointed out to me this week, that sidebar in Chapter 8 never made it into the printed book. Instead, I’ve now posted it here: Rotating Clips.
