A lot of people use it. I have Premiere Pro. Which does it natively.
Theres on line tools as well.
So naturally I had to try to figure out what was going on. I had some pretty good results, or so I thought. There was a Buck outside my window today. I picked up my camera and shot a little footage of it. Camtasia 2018 does not like my Nikon camera footage due to a graphics card issue. So I threw the footage in Camtasia 9. Why this matters, I’ll get to that in a moment.
I exported a small portion of the footage from Camtasia’s timeline at 60 percent quality MP4. I ran it through video time reversal 2. The footage lost a little bit of clarity and was actually a little darker than the original. I rendered it to MP4 so that’s to be expected. Then I upped the quality to the highest quality MP4 available. It was only slightly higher in quality and didn’t seem to help.
I was going to show you a side-by-side comparison of the original footage in Camtasia 9. Then, the reversed footage in Camtasia 2018. Well, the reversed footage will not show up in the canvas area of Camtasia 2018. You can place it on the timeline, but Camtasia the 2018 cannot see it.
Whereas Camtasia 9, has no difficulty seeing it whatsoever.
So I went ahead and I threw the 2 videos in Premier Pro. I undocked the preview window and the source monitor. Placing the videos side-by-side. On the same frame respectively. The video was only 4 seconds and 18 frames long. The reversed video was placed on the 18th frame. The original video was placed at the 4 second mark. The detail is not quite as sharp in the reverse video. But I wouldn’t call it a deal breaker either.
I also played around with the online video conversion tool. https://ezgif.com/reverse-video/ezgif-1-3a936e4885e7.mp4
the online converter clearly did a better job. I have DSL
and it took about 4 minutes to upload and convert and download that small
video. So I’m not saying it’s a high speed option, but if it’s simply running
in your browser in the background. How inconvenient is that? To me, it would just be a
game of being patient.You could work on other parts of the video. While you wait for the video to go through.
If a consistent frame rate per second with smooth playback is desired. I think you might find the online converter a decent resource.
