I am working for a new client who displays their final renders on plasma TVs in landscape and portrait. For the portrait ones, they just flip the TV sideways. Is there a way to flip an AE project and have all of the animations automatically flip 90 degrees without having to start from scratch and re-do the entire project? On top of it all, it is due tomorrow morning.
You arranged your composition for a horizontal frame and the client expects it to look good in a vertical frame too? Without rearranging as lot of elements?
Try this: add an adjustment layer over everything and apply effect>distort>transform and rotate 90 degrees within that effect. If that doesn't work, drag the whole comp into another comp and rotate it 90 degrees inside that comp. You might have to hit the continuous rasterization switch.
But methinks you'll have to re-arrange a large part of your comp.

It sounds like they have done this before.
Thus, they understand that the screen for vertical display gets rotated 90 degrees.
You need to understand that you can't mix portrait and landscape in the same animation. You have to do two separate ones. You'll need to know which direction they rotate their screen: clockwise or counter-clockwise. You don't want you animations to appear upside-down.
