After shooting a movie (vertically) on my FZ10, I found that I am not able to rotate the end product. Does anybody know if this is possible? or do I just need to stick with taking movies laterally.

If you're using Windows XP, you can rotate the movie using Windows Movie Maker. Just Import Videoand look in Tools, Video Effects and scroll down to Rotate 90°, then just drag the icon onto your movie and you canpreview it using the Play button. Save To My Computer and you're done.

Ismovie maker able to import quick time files? I know windows media player is not compatible. If this also applies to movie maker , Is there a conversion program that is first applied to the file.

I was under the impression windows movie maker could only output in WMV format ? Even if it can do this, personally I don't find WMV much use as a format

You're right. I forgot the FZ10 produces Quicktime files as I don't use the movie mode that much. There are free conversion programs on the Internet. Just do a Google search. A quick search turned up a 30 day free trial for this one http://www.eo-video.com/

Doesn't the full version of QuickTime allow you rotate? I cannot remember. It's not priced bad at all now, so that may be your best option.

If you can find something that can rotate MPEG video, then you can just get Rad Video Tools (freeware) to convert QT to MPEG1 (not MPEG2). It's also a very nice package for cleaning things up (color, sharpness, etc.).

You do realize that portrait orientation video is not going to display properly on a standard TV or computer monitor, right?
