How to Reverse a Video Using Movavi Video Editor

One of the more interesting and situational types of video effects out there has definitely go to be the ‘reverse playback’ effect. As you can guess it basically involves playing a video in reverse (i.e. from the end to the beginning), so all the action in it takes place backward.

Typically the reverse effect is used to show time passing in reverse and may precede a flashback or some other scene. In some cases, it is also used to create comedic-looking effects, due to how strange and offbeat it can look.

Assuming you want to reverse one of your videos, you’ll find that it is easy enough with Movavi Video Editor.

Once the video has been added to Movavi Video Editor it will appear in the lower section of the interface, i.e. the ‘Timeline’. First, you should select it by clicking on it once, then open up the ‘Clip Properties’ (i.e. the cogwheel icon located above the ‘Timeline’). To reverse the video that you selected, find the ‘Reverse’ checkbox in the ‘Tools’ tab that just opened, and click on it to tick it.

Essentially that’s all that it takes to reverse video using Movavi Video Editor. Before you save the video you can see the effect in action using the ‘Preview’ window, then click ‘Export’ to save it by selecting the format or preset that you wish to use.
