See notes on this post from last year. It shows one method to reverse video which then can be imported and used.

- camtasia, only:
1. import video to timeline,
2. go to the end of the video,
3. screencam: watching a video with continuous down 'arrow to step reverse', left.

just tested, and vzikovzik's technique does work

you need to capture the canvas with Recorder while you are walking back on the timeline

if you are working with large format media on timeline, the canvas display can lag sometimes as the playhead moves to left

keeping the recorded canvas size smaller vs. larger will give better results

but it's a quick and effective method

To get your clip back to original speed, once you have your CAPTURED SCREEEN on the TIMELINE (TL), you can right click the clip on the TL and choose CLIP SPEED (CS) and increase CS to into the 120s to get your reversed clip to the original clips speed.... If you have 2 clips next to each other on the TL you will need to drag one right to make room for the sped up clips to expand....
