    iphoto videos, how to flip horizontally like a mirror
    as the title says, i recorded myself using Photo Booth playing guitar and everything is flipped because the camera is facing me and functioned like a mirror.

    how do i flip it to normal?

    thanks

    I don't have an answer to fix your current recording. Something like Final Cut could do it I think.

    When recording in the future, try using iMovie. It will record the picture properly.

    There are no plug-ins that I'm aware of for iMovie 08 because Apple has not published a plug-in API. The previous version do have third party plugins available so search Google for the words; imovie plug-in. GeeThree was a popular company that did that kind of work.

    It looks like previous versions had a mirror capability, but it is broken on my copy with several other effects.

    When you export from iM08, use the advanced QuickTime feature and use the Apple Intermediate Codec. Also keep to the native resolution. Then do the same when you bring it back in. That should keep the quality high.

    See my guide about iMovie Exporting Guide.

    As I said, I can't experiment with this to figure out if there are any quirks.
