You can get pretty precise with rotational handle.I do it all the time.
The key is grabbing the handle and moving your cursor far away from the center while holding down the left click.
Here I have the cursor moved to the
far side of the canvas at the bottom.It's highlighted in Red. It turns into a
circled arrow that's hard to see. You can easily arc in very small
You can also sweep into the UI area. You don’t have to remain
in the Canvas area.I normally edit using 2 monitors. The 32” 2556 x 1440 for the Canvas. The timeline goes on a 23” 1920 x 1080 on the right.
If you look at the bottom of the timeline, you’ll see the rotation cursor way over there. So controls off the charts in that situation.
90 degree rotation points snap into place.
You can do the same in thing in Photoshop. Just in case you didn’t know this.
