In Wondershare Filmii you can rotate your clips, crop them, or even apply camera movements like pan and zoom. Here’s how.

Rotate

Rotating your clip is when you turn it upside down or on its side.

Auto Creation: during this process, you can rotate clips only after you’ve clicked Auto Create and advanced to Quick Edit mode. In Quick Edit mode, select your clip or image in the progress bar beneath your video preview and you will see rotation icons that will let you rotate left or right.

Advanced Editing: in this mode, double click on a clip or image in your timeline to open more editing options in the right of the interface. There you will see a Rotation section with options to rotate your clip left or right or flip it horizontally or vertically.

Crop

Cropping your clip or image is when you select a smaller frame to use in your video.

To crop a clip in Advanced Editing, select it and choose the Crop and Zoom icon towards the right of the timeline toolbar. Or, you can right-click and choose Crop and Zoom.

A window will open with the options Crop and Pan & Zoom. In the Crop section, drag the edges and corners of the box inside the preview to choose a new size and shape. You can maintain the aspect ratio of your clip or image, or choose a new one in the dropdown menu under the preview.

Pan & Zoom

The Pan & Zoom tool in Filmii’s Advanced Editing mode can add camera movements to your clips or images.

Select a clip in your timeline and choose the Crop and Zoom icon towards the right of the timeline toolbar. Or, you can right-click and choose Crop and Zoom.

A window will open with the options Crop and Pan & Zoom. Click into the Pan & Zoom section and you’ll see a preview of your clip with a green start box and a red end box. You can drag these boxes to change their location, or drag the edges and corners of the boxes to change their sizes. When your clip starts playing the portion in the green box will be on screen and it will transition into the red box as it plays.

For example, if you want the ‘camera’ to pan to the right, you can put the green box in the far left and the red box in the far right and make them the same size. Or, if you want to start on a small detail of your clip and zoom out into the full image, you can make the green box small and put it over that small detail while making the red box take up the entire image.

If you ever want to switch your start and end boxes, click the switch icon in the top right of the preview.
