How to reverse video?
Posted: 17 Jun 2006 02:31 PM
This has probably been asked here thousands of times so sorry. I'm not going to ask "how to reverse video" obviously the title already did that but to start anyways...i'm interested in a tool that is specifically dedicated to reversing videos.

So many proffesional video editing tools out there and 80% of them don't have a reverse video feature. And the ones that do have such a feature take centuries to render the effect. I used to FadeToBlack to reverse a two minute video and it took nearly 2 hours! That is too long and not worth the trouble.

Then I found other ways of doing it. Taking all of the frames in the video and basically start doing what would appear to be mirroring an image....taking the end of the scene to the start of the scene and the rest etc but, I saw that I had 4,623 frames to work with and I dropped the idea, that would have taken even longer.

I am tired of browsing the internet and about to give up on the reverse video effect idea. There must be some reason why so many companies neglect to put this feature into their video editing software.

Is there any software out there that can reverse videos quick and easily?!? I don't care how much it costs. I just need to reverse video!

This one is also worth trying out: Video Time Reversal.

Pros: works
Cons: French program. Works with normal AVIs only.

You could always use lsmaker and import the video in reverse then export it as an avi file.

Thanks for any help.

i know french, i learn it at school -it's pretty simple this tool though...
1) Start it up
2) Click "Parcourir"
3) Select the file when prompted
4) Click "reverse AVI"
5) after it's done click "quitter"

there you go

You need to use other compressor for .avi files. Download a Video Converter and convert ur clip to .avi but with DivX 6.2.5 (www.divx.com) compressor. I use all time #1 Video Converter #1 Video Converter

I hope this is useful for u. "au revoir"

Life is good.

I gave a bit more explanation of Video_Time_Reversal in this post

In particular note that you can't directly use the Type-I AVI files produced by MM2.
You have to use Type-II AVI files. MM1 produces type-II.
Alternatively you can get a free converter from Ulead

I use Firefox+Greasemonkey scripts for easier editing of forum posts, FAQs and displaying embedded images Wink

Re: How to reverse video?
Posted: 11 Jul 2006 02:09 AM
I followed the directions on Rehanfx. I have the VirtualDub and Avisynth which came with AutoGK. The Virtualdub is same as the screencap you have (an older version), and avisynth is the latest version.

I did the paste in notebook, saved as an ".avs" But when I open that file, I can only select 2 opens: 1) Open video file or 2) Open video via avisynth. I choose option 1, find the .avs file i made in notebook.

I get this error:
AviSynth open failure: failure to suggest a compatible PCM format. (F:/Reverse/mymovie_reverse.avs, line 1)

F: is my external drive, and "Reverse" is the folder I made for this. Please help on what I'm doing wrong. Would appreciate it very much. Thanks

Which format is the source video? As I suggested it needs to be in uncompressed video + PCM WAV audio format.

It's a regular .avi. I thought the steps would allow me to make my .avi's into uncompressed files, which I could then run with french reversal program. But the first step is the hindrance to me, with vurtualdub/avisynth.

There is no such thing as a "regular" avi... There are many codecs that can be used to encode the video inside an AVI container.

K-5 Video Reversal Tool can reverse videos in one step. Just input your video and click "start".
