I am currently working on a project for a client and he needs to display video in 9x16 format. That is not a mis-print -- 9x16. I am planning on shooting 16x9 and then rotating the frame counter clockwise in order to display in 9x16.

He is using a 42in display to show his footage "portrait" so we are able to see our host full screen.

To preface, I have never done this but I am worried about 2 things.
1. Can I rotate the image in FCP counter clockwise? If yes, how?
2. How do I export to 9x16? If yes, how?
