A simple rotate function would be great! Often we convert phone footage, ant it needs to be rotated 90 degrees.
Pretty simple. Adding some rotate function to the crop function would be really helpful....and easy I imagine

Adobe 2022 is here and still no rotate function !
This is the third most voted feature request on Media Encoder!

Hey Christopher, I would say just 90 degree and really you should have the option to swap the resolution AND crop/scale. In truth, I wish there was just a check box where we could swap resolutions. I just proxy'd some videos in AME and a couple of the original were 1080 x 1920 (instead of 1920 x 1080) and I had to make a whole new ingest preset, when I wish everywhere through the adobe suite I could just click a check box to swap the resolution and keep everything else the same.

How would this work?
There are a few things. Anonymous commented in 2018 about the issue where if the record button is hit on a mobile, it locks the orientation to the phone at the time. Often the phone is then turned around to shoot wide, or vertical, and it displays sideways. Probably locked into the file header.
So yes, a simple 90 flip would be great. Keep the tools we have in terms of cropping, scaling etc, and it would be really handy and easy.
The other feature would be what YouTube, Facebook and a bunch of other social video tools do...ADD BACKGROUND.
My wish: If you use SCALE TO FIT...the remaining space is filled with a SCALED TO FILL version of the same thing, just a little darker, and blurred.
Yes, it's something we can do easily in Premiere or After Effects....but it still takes time, and in a daily NEWS cycle, we are processing many many phone videos of all sizes and aspects....and a simple one size fits all MEDIA ENCODER solution would be ideal.

Hi everyone, first of all thanks for filing this great idea! I have a question regarding a possible implementation. Would you prefer a fixed 90 degrees rotation or more granular steps?
Also, would you expect the width and height of the exported file to be changed as well or would you prefer the frame size to be fixed and the image to be scaled / pillarboxed?
Example: File has 1920 x 1080 (wxh) and the rotated has 1080 x 1920 or still 1920 x 1080 and the image is cut off or has black bars?

I confirm, filming in smartphone format with a camera requires a 90 degree rotation to be viewed on a computer, it's amazing that Media Encoder does not offer this simple feature.

This is one of those "I can't believe it doesn't already do this" things.
Sort of like remuxing audio streams:

I agree, rotate 90° a video would be very useful
Really could do with this feature. Recently moved from Squeeze to Encoder and this is an effect that I used regularly in squeeze but is missing in Encoder.

With images it is a simple matter of changing an EXIF rotation flag :( - what about video?
There are a few instances where footage is recorded on the phone and is interpreted as being recorded with the wrong orientation. Quickly fixing this without having to recompress in an editor would be great.
