How to rotate or flip a video inside Adobe Premiere

When recording video with iPhone or Android device it is possible to record an up side down video. In this case you'll probably need to rotate/flip the video using Adobe Premiere before exporting the video to H264 :)

To do so here is what you can do in Adobe Premiere CS3/CS4 and probably CS5

Hit [Window] > [Effect Controls] *To see the panel*

Click on the clip that you want to flip

Hit [Video effects] > [Motion] > [Rotation]

Type in 180 instead of 0.

Virtual Earth

When I was integrating Virtual Earth 3D in a GPS location software
I noticed that the default InfoBox for a push pin added on the map has a fixed size. When looking at Microroft documentation they said that the style can be overriden by calling map.ClearInfoBoxStyles().

Well this is working for 2D map but for 3D the info box is blanked.

The Virtual Earth CSS is poorly documented but I found a way to override the style sheet without calling ClearInfoBoxStyles and then be able to view bigger infobox.
Include the following at the top of your hosting page

/* override VE css to resize infoboxes */

.ero .ero-body
overflow: auto;

.ero .firstChild
