After importing my footage in to the Movie Clip Editor, I find that it is not oriented the way I would like.

What is the easiest way to rotate this in Blender?

You could add a transformation strip (effect) in the VSE and set the rotation. See the documentation for further details on available settings.

    $\begingroup$ OK, but will this also rotate the movie that I see in Movie Clip Editor? As I need to add my track markers there. $\endgroup$ – Neil Dec 9 '13 at 17:05

    $\begingroup$ @Neil You could try rendering the video out to a file from the VSE, then loading it into the movieclip editor. I don't know of any way to go directly from the VSE to the movie clip editor, but I don't use these much so I may just be missing something. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Dec 9 '13 at 21:03

    $\begingroup$ This seems to be the only way to do this IN blender, just need to remember to change the Resolution settings after rotation, this isn't done automatically. $\endgroup$ – Neil Dec 10 '13 at 9:51

    $\begingroup$ The vse also has x and y flip states in strip properties. Better quality than a rotate effect. Would be nice if movie clip editor had this as well as the aspect ratio controls. $\endgroup$ – David Mcsween Dec 11 '13 at 23:23

    $\begingroup$ @Rob I sure understand the whole link only thing (and I'm one that is constantly reminding people of it). However, in this case don't you think it was a bit overkill to flag it? You may or may not know that blender changed its manual, breaking all the links. This is normal, and pretty easy to fix the link. But aside from that, even without the link I still understood what to do. There was still an answer here; and that is the difference between a link only answer and an answer with a dead link. $\endgroup$ – David Oct 20 '17 at 23:54
