This effect/filter transposes rows with columns in the clip and optionally flips it. This is useful if a video recorded with a smartphone is imported as a landscape clip.

The effect does not have keyframes.


Transpose effect

  • Direction - Set the direction of the transposition. Options are Clock (default), Clock flip, Counter clock, and Counter clock flip.

  • Override if - Override the transposition if clip is identified as Portrait or Landscape. Select None if you want to transpose regardless.


Many smartphones and digital cameras nowadays set an autorotate flag in the recorded video. Kdenlive can read the flag and transposes videos automatically when importing. Check the clip’s properties (Clip Properties) if you want Kdenlive to handle that differently and set the Disable autorotate to any other value than 0 (default) or switch it to On.
