Videos in Storyline

I have an MOV file that I am inserting into Storyline. The thumbnail is sideways (so the person is horizontal, not verticial), but when I click to play it in Quicktime, the video rights itself, and the person is correctly aligned. However, when I insert the video into Storyline, the thumbnail and the video are both sideways. Is there a way I can fix it within the program? Or does someone have a clever work around? Thanks!

Hi Michelle,

Here's a link to a support page where Mike Enders has a workaround for rotating the video.

I did this a while back and wrote down a few notes, so here you go:

  • Insert the video
  • Insert a shape and make it the same size as the video (maybe a bit bigger)
  • no lines, no fill
  • Group the shape and the video
  • Rotate

Please shout out with any questions!
