Sometimes we record video in portrait mode, but the camera sensor doesn't detect that we filmed in a different orientation. This causes videos to come out sideways, or even worse, upside down. In those situations, rotating a video is essential to improve our audience’s viewing experience.
Kapwing’s online video rotator lets you mirror, flip, and change the orientation of a video without downloading any complicated software. You can turn your video 180 degrees however many times you’d like or add more video effects all in one place — no video editing experience needed. Once you’re finished editing, Kapwing will automatically process your project, allowing you to save the rotated video and share it anywhere.
Start by uploading your video file or pasting a link to the YouTube video. You can then immediately make changes to the rotation by using the transformers at the ends of your video layer. However, your edits don't have to stop there. Once you've found the perfect rotation, use the sliders or the timeline to change the start and end time, make cuts, or shorten your video. You can split a layer into parts and remove the middle section from the video, or duplicate parts of the video to create a loop.
Once you Export the trimmed video, Kapwing will process the rotation edits and give you a saveable MP4 version of the video clip. Preview the final video by pressing play and make any other edits you need. Then, download the MP4 file directly or share the URL with friends to send the trimmed part to someone else. You can also “Edit” the trim if you need to make timing adjustments.
This free online rotate tool works for any image, video, or GIF. It's perfect for times when you accidentally film something the wrong direction or want to make a landscape video for IGTV or TikTok. Make a mirrored collage to add artistic flair with a cool video effect. With Kapwing, you have infinite degrees of creativity, literally!
Kapwing is free to use for teams of any size. We also offer paid plans with additional features, storage, and support.
