Blender VSE and Avidemux How To Rotate Video

April 11th, 2012

Blender VSE and Avidemux How To Rotate Video

This is part of the Blender VSE (Video Sequence Editor) series in which I demonstrate how to rotate a video clip. I also add a secondary method using Avidemux since both methods will produce varying results. If the original clip had not been a MOV file I could have used Virtual Dub Mod.

The video can be found HERE: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzAQZwsXP0w&context=C46c3c8dADvjVQa1PpcFPyFDNu2r7HCaJ8bQiQH_mJsDi9aTmMpvk=

Avidemux can be found HERE: http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/download.html

Bledner VSE  How To Adjust the Speed of a Video

This is part of my Blender Video Sequence Editor Series. In this tutorial I show how to change the speed of a video clip using Blender. I used a small video clip that is 640x480 px at 30 FPS running around 4 minutes in length. By adding an effect I change the snowball fight into a high speed chase sequence ...or something like that.

The tutorial can be found here:

Linux Mint-12 Upgrade from Ubuntu

I have been quite happy with Ubuntu up untill 11.10 when they dropped Gnome for Unity leaving us without a choice. But I tried to get use to it but found it somewhat glitchy. Then I kept hearing talk about the Mint branch of Linux.
