Nero is a suite of software centered around disc authoring. Nero Vision, a video editing application, is part of that suite. One of the useful editing functions available in the latest version of Nero Vision is the ability to rotate a video or section of video. Many have found the rotation function difficult to locate. The trick is to apply a transformation effect and then modify the effect to produce a rotation effect of 90, 180, or 270 degrees. This guide shows you how to do that.

Step 1

Launch [Nero]( 9 Vision, the video editing application from the Nero suite of software.

Step 2

Load the desired video file in Nero Vision by going to "File" -> "Open" and browsing for the video file. Select the file and click "Open."

Step 3

Select the section of the video you wish to rotate on the timeline. Select the entire timeline if you wish to rotate the entire video.

Step 4

Select "Video Effects" -> "Others" -> "Transform."

Step 5

Double-click on the "Transform" effect in the timeline and select "Rotation." The video will be rotated.

Repeat Step 5 as needed until the rotation is to your liking.
