Video recording is one of the popular hobbies people have developed post-smartphone revolution. However, only pro-users have taken this hobby seriously and achieved some skills. Other amateurs are just shooting videos of their families, especially of kids, with some faults.
It has been noticed that most often people capture videos in vertical mode; or even if they shoot videos in horizontal mode, the results are drastically faulty, showing video neither in horizontal nor the vertical mode. Finally, all the fun and pleasure is killed. People may also notice large black lines on the sides of their videos when watched horizontally. Thankfully, there is a solution to this problem. Now users can rotate videos in their iPhone and iPad devices.
iMovie is a built-in feature for iOS users, who can now convert their vertically aligned videos into horizontal mode. Now, you don’t need to see movies or videos in vertical mode even though you have captured them in horizontal mode.
iMovie is a free app available on iPhone and iPad; if you own an older iOS device, you can download it from App Store.
