• Hi, I'm importing a bunch of iPhone photos to process at high res. I wanna keep the default ratio (2448 × 3264) but they get automatically rotated by -90 degrees when outputted from a Picture Player. This is already visible in the Media pool thumbnail.
    Preview stage size is also set at 2448 × 3264.

    There must be a very simple explanation but I can't seem to work it out..

    How you are importing them to the Mac before you import them into Isadora? Let me know and we'll try to duplicate the process and find out what's going on.

    Best Wishes,

     I made a user actor a bit ago that should be able to help you with this.
    DX – ROTATE CANVAS (rotates image without association to stage size/ratio)

    They are automatically imported by Dropbox from my phone, either when connected to the laptop or through the app on the phone.

    Here what it looks like:

    Thanks that looks handy! I'm on Isa 2 though still so not sure it'll work :(

    Unfortunatley the Matte actors in Isadora 2 have a bug related to the 'scale fg' function, that makes it so I can't port this User Actor backwards to Isadora 2.
    Here are the guts of the user actor in case its useful for anyone else to understand.

    The basics are that the image is placed onto (using Matte++) a Square canvas (using the greater of Width or Height).
    Then the square canvas is rotated 90, 180, 270 degrees (as needed). Finally the Square canvas is cropped back down to the image size.
