Hello. I am new to this forum so I hope I am posting in the proper section.
If not please kindly direct me to correct area.
I need a little help with editing some videos and photos in iPhoto and iMovie
I am using
iMovie '08 7.1.4
iPhoto '08 7.1.5
(cant afford to upgrade at this time)

1.) I shot some video using my digital camera and I need to rotate the video 90 degrees. When I select my video in iPhoto it does not allow me to rotate. Works fine with pics but not video. Any ideas on how to do this? At one time I had Kodak EasyShare installed and I could rotate video,but I deleted the program because it was running super slow.

2.) Is it possible to edit video speed in iMovie? I would like to slow some video down to slow motion. Cant seem to figure it out.
QUOTE Thanks

I think I have it worked out
I rotated the video in iMovie using the crop tool. Simple enough,I dont know how i did figure this out before.
I found this vid on youtube to do the slo mo edit,
YouTube - how to do ramped slow motion in imovie
I tried it and it didnt work yet but I will figure it out eventually.The clip need to be exported to iMovie HD to edit then moved back to iMovie Hmmmm seems odd that you need so many steps to do this
QUOTE Thanks
