(This idea comes what what we’ve heard here in this community as well as from other customer feedback methods we utilize. The feedback we gather here will help us gauge how well it fits our users’ needs. Please let us know what you think)

The Problem:

I need the video to play in reverse (for education, training, scientific reasons, etc).

Potential Solution:

A video effect in Camtasia which will reverse the direction of a clip

We were surprised how many votes this one got. While this idea was in the top tier, there are ideas close in voting to this one that are more inline with upcoming themes we’ll be focusing on first. This is still an idea that we’ll keep at the top of consideration when our capacity allows.


Here are the definitions of what the statuses mean for Ideas.

We definitely hear you folks loud and clear on this front. We want to provide this capability, but I can't give a guarantee on when. We've had an entire team working on improvements to the underlying rendering engine used by Camtasia. We still have some work there to get it to the point where we're going to be able to maximize the user facing value of that work. We want to make sure we do this in a sensible way, rather than just hacking it in. Keep on voting for this and providing feedback that pushes your interest in this feature. I'll work hard to prioritize work on this front.
