Yes,
With the video on the timeline, select clip mode, see the blue circle with the"+" grab the top of the circle, press left button and drag the video around to the orientation you want.

Produce to your chosen format.

if my video was square, this would have done it ... but since its rectangular, the video is rotated but the frame is not, therefore my rectangular video is now square and I am loosing a lot ... how do I prevent this, how do I get the entire video to rotate 90degrees and not just the video within the rectangle.

I later found the aspect ratio changer on top of screen and that fixed the above problem ... but now all I get is a very small video ... wondering why ... I didn't change the size, only rotated it ... why is it super small?

Hello,

Sounds like you want your video to have a 9:16 aspect ratio? Just change your project aspect ratio.

Please also tell us which version of PDR you are using and also attach a screenshot if possible.

Right. Now you need to use the PiP Designer to set the scale to a bigger size. If you haven't made any edits to the clip, simply delete it from the timeline and drag a new copy there so it will have the new aspect ratio from the start
