    Question How to rotate and straighten a video? Any tip please?

    When a video clip is taken and my camera (SLR) is not exactly horizontal, the result is a video which appear askew, not in a level position.

    I was told that the programs that can rotate and straighten a bit the video (not just at 90/180 degrees) are very expensive but I can’t afford them.

    Is there any affordable or free software which can slightly rotate and straighten such a video?

    Thanks in advance foe any useful tip!

    Marina, there are powerful and quite cheap (50 us dollars) options for great editing softwares that will do what you need. Check Sony Movie Studio for example . And you can even download a trial version to work for a month and see if you like it. Many of us here work with the Sony editing tools, so you will get a lot of help too.

    I can do that in Sony Vegas using the pan/crop function. Sony's entry level software, Movie Studio ($50US), can also do this and I'm sure most other NLE software can do the same. You do lose some of the image when you rotate.

    I would also agree - except it doesn't run under OSX :(

    If you are willing to use Linux then Openshot would be a free alternative.
