Why rotate a GIF?

Here are three reasons why having the ability to rotate a GIF is useful


You can repurpose a meme or a raw GIF into a new thing. This gives you creative potential.


With Motionbox you can also make a GIF based ad, and inside the ad you might need to rotate your GIF to get your message across. Our goal is to make creativity easy and limitless.


You can rotate abstract GIF stickers using our Giphy integration. I've personally made many cool templates inside Motionbox using the rotate GIF feature to add a design aesthetic to many of these videos we offer in our template library.

To keep my audience engaged and excited for the weekly episodes I use Motionbox to promote the content. It's super easy to trim my podcast and add a visualizer.

Motionbox helped me create short clips of longer videos that were perfect for sharing as social media posts for my client's campaign. The built-in subtitle feature and progressbar worked great. I even used the subtitle feature to quickly generate copy from the longer videos so that I could also create blog posts! It saved me so much time. If I could use Motionbox to create top-notch content for my client who is a Super Bowl champion, then I'd say it's a superb tool!
