Cubase 10.5 Rotating Video on Its Own

Hi all,

Just as the title suggests: when I open my video file (mp4) into VLC it plays properly, but in Cubase, it’s rotating 90 degrees to the left. I’ve even tried to rotate it the other way in VLC and reimport, but I get the same results.

Any fixes for this? I can’t find video options that allow me to rotate it.

Same issue here. Would like to know a fix so I don’t have to resort to third party video editing software.


If you’re working with video, you have to use 3rd party software to convert the video in order to be used in Cubase or Nuendo if you want assured compatibility.

Try using ER Media Toolkit and convert to PRO RES.

I have the same issue in 11 pro. tried recording on ipad and android phone and both videos play ok on laptop but when imported into cubase its been rotated… seems like a bug that needs fixing…
