Rotate Filter

If you use this filter, you will be able to rotate an image by any degrees. You can also change the background color behind the rotated image using the RGB sliders given below the "Angle" trackbar.

Important: you should study this article in order to find out how to setup your Windows Forms Application correctly.

Properties

Angle: A float type value which represents the value of the angle, which is used to rotate the picture of a camera or video.You are allowed to set any negative or positive value, because this function can handle every value. It divides the current value with 360 degree in order to get the real angle.

FillColor: This method sets the background color of the video image to a specified color given to it. It is composed from 3 integers representing the value of the red, green and blue color coordinates.
