What it looks like

Nice to know

Fast rendering
By default, Rotato enables the highest quality. If you want a faster render time, and a slightly lower quality, go to Preferences and enable Fast Rendering

Choose your render size
You can change your video's resolution. Click Render Movie.. then Advanced, and choose a resolution up to 4K.

For snapshots, you can change the default resolution in Preferences

Rendering just the video on the screen?
Sometimes you just want a video running in a nice device frame. To do that, drag in your video, and add a single keyframe. Click Render. That's it. Rotato will adjust the rendered movie to match the dragged in video.
