The simple answer is no!
There are 3 types of pages you can build in Oomph; Portrait, Landscape and Both. Each page type is designated using Oomph's 'Smart Naming'.
For example a portrait page is named P1-1.pdf, a landscape page is named L1-1.pdf and a page that you want to have viewed in both orientations is named B1-1.pdf
So what happens to a page designed for portrait viewing at 768px x 1024px when it's designated as a 'B' page and viewed in landscape. Here's an example of a page, originally built for portrait, viewed in both orientations.
In portrait the page fills the screen, in landscape the page has been re-sized and re-rendered to fit the new width of 1024 but the ratio of the page has been maintained. The user can now scroll up and down the page to view the contents. All interactive assets including animations within the page are maintained in both orientations.
The advantage of building 'B' pages means that an accidental rotation of the iPad doesn't result in a blank or sideways page being presented to the viewer. It also has the effect of providing an enlarged view of the content.
There is additional information on Pages and Layers in the documentation.
