I'm working on a project where the finished images are being displayed on a 9x16 frame (i.e. a TV screen in portrait)
The files I'm working on were shot at 90 degrees so that they display the correct way up on the final output (by rotating the screen).
I have my post workflow sorted but for one small issue. The client wants to see low res files with BITC, with the files all rotated 90 degrees so they display correctly on their computer. I'm trying to do this with REDCINE-X but my rotation settings don't seem to be having any effect on the final renders. As you'll see from the screenshot below, they are displayed correctly in the Viewer. I've also posted a grab of the rendered file (h.264 mov)
I can rotate the files using QuickTime 7 but doing this makes the BITC display at the wrong orientation.
I have a very long-winded solution for fixing this but can anyone point out any mistakes I've made with my settings in REDCINE-X??? I'd prefer to do it all in one go and use the Rocket to speed things up.
I'm starting to wonder if it's a bug/unfinished option because I can't see a reason why such settings wouldn't transfer to the rendered file when they are displaying correctly in the timeline.
For now I'm going to bodge it together with FCP or Compressor as I don't have Resolve. It's a shame there's no rotation option in Compressor either (I thought there might be but I just checked and can't find it)
