Aloha,

I'm having some difficulty with the Mimo app exporting vertical video even though it was shot in landscape.  Details: Using an iphone 11 (iOS 14.3) and the front camera with the OM4 and the Mimo app (v1.5.11).  All video is filmed in landscape and in the iOS environment it is displayed correctly.  However, when downloaded to a PC to edit in Vegas Pro 14, I only get vertical orientation (attached mimo 1).  The only workaround I could find was to capture the screen on an ipad in the "correct" aspect and export the screen capture.  Sometimes thumbnails show vertical and sometimes horizontal (attached mimi 2).

I would welcome any thoughts on this oddity.  Is there a way to lock the mimo app to a 16:9 ratio?  I cannot see any situation where I would film vertical.

Thank you for the message. I haven’t messed with the phone orientation lock when in the Mimo App. However, most of what I’ve seen would indicate that orientation lock is only to lock in portrait versus landscape. I seen some work around that allow you to lock in landscape with a AssistiveTouch. Is this what you are referring to? Thank you again

I have same vertical export problem from iPhone 12 max pro shot with om4 and edited in Premier Pro CS6.  When I shoot with same phone without om4 I get correct 1920x1080 import.

Same problem with an iPhone 11 Max Pro connected to the Osmo Mobile 3. And no, it's not iphone "orientation lock"
Just did 3 video landscape shots in a row, with filmic pro, native iphone app and Mimo
Filmic pro and app did a mov, shown correctly on iphone and on PC after upload.
Mimo creates an mp4, shows it correctly on iphone,  but is in portrait mode after upload to PC.

Now, you could say it's the MP4 upload that is the culprit, but my DJI Mavic Pro MP4 uploads  dont have that problem !!!

Thank you for the input. It’s disappointing to see so many people with this problem, but at least I’m not going crazy.Hopefully they’ll come up with a fix soon, this makes it impossible to “trust” the app with a critical shoot.

I’ve had the same problem both exporting from an IPhone XS Max to PC editing software and to LumaFusion on the same IPhone.

Here are my observations and my pretty simple workaround, it’s a functional ‘solution’ only and yes, it shouldn’t be necessary.

As I haven’t found a setting to correct all ‘selfie’ or front camera footage automatically like you can in some other DJI apps the footage is ‘reversed’ as per usual with the front cameras.

Anyway to my workaround for both problems (Landscape mode exporting as portrait and flipped) Just open the video from your camera roll in the iPhone native app and click edit, then click on the bottom right ‘crop’ icon. Just click the top left icon to flip the footage and save. For me that equals problem solved from a functional standpoint. A bit of a pain to have to go through your front camera footage like that but until it gets sorted from within the DJI Mimo app………

That is an interesting workaround. Previously, I ended up doing a screen grab in the proper orientation. “Editing“ the clip in the proper orientation and saving sounds like a much faster solution. Thanks!
