Did the developers finally add a video reverse effect on Camtasia 9? You could only record screen and do it manually but it was very impractical and low quality.

Aww this could help a lot and it doesn't seem that hard to program.. But I understand they have more important things to do and fix the bugs. Thank you for the reply!

I have searched for applications that play video backwards.  Some are no longer available and some have removed the ability because of inherent issue.  Programming, with non-stuttering playback, now seems more difficult than imagined..

About the kayakman solution: Yeah I already know it and mentioned it on the description, thank you for recommending it though! But still it ruins the quality significantly since you record a small window, so it wouldn't be smooth at all.

About the expert comment: I guess Camtasia is a solution mostly for businesses and less for the normal editors that want to create entertaining videos, so it wouldn't be that helpful since it would be useless to them.

you can full screen the canvas then capture it

I've used the workaround several ways ... back-walk using left arrow via manual hits, or just hold it down

also, speeding up a reversed clip can help make it look smoother

definitely not an optimum solution, but it beats a blank

I use this piece of  free software for reversing video. It has worked well for me
