Default Video Editing Question - Need to invert image.

I want to take digital video inside a moving car. The only way I can mount the camera securely to shoot the area I need is to mount it upside down. Is there any video editing software that will allow me to flip the image back over.

If you want to do serious editing the best software for the price is Adobe Premier Elements IMO, and yes it allow you to invert the image and much much more. Windows Movie Maker will also let you rotate the video.

Oh yeah... and the right price too. It's called Virtual Dub and it's free.

It does not say that it works with Vista... Do you know that it does?

Thanks for the help!

if i's something simple like you are talking about, your Vista computer should have Windows MovieMaker on it.

Yup. The site owner says: "If you are one of the few people still using Windows 95, you will need to stick with the 1.6.x series since starting with 1.7.0, VirtualDub will require Windows 98 or higher. However, if you are using Windows Vista, you should use 1.7.0 to resolve issues with the displays; later builds of Vista have fixed some of the compatibility problems with the Desktop Window Manager (DWM) that underlies Aero Glass, but only 1.7.0 will work without issues since I rearchitected part of the display engine to fix GDI-DirectDraw interop problems."

CONFIRMED. Windows Movie Maker does rotate it. It is in the EFFECTS selection, ROTATE 180.

Free.
