How to Reverse Video easily.
Posted: 09 Dec 2007 03:48 PM
This has been discussed many times and I got the information here originally.
I teach an after school video class at an elementary school and the kids love to do reverse vids.

I have made a quick youtube tutorial that demos how to reverse video step by step.
I'm using a freeware video converter to convert my files to DV-AVI format first then using the freeware reversal tool to reverse the video.


Some people complain that the reversal tool does not work for them. In every case that it failed to work in class, it was because students did not convert the video to the DV-AVI format before using the the reversal tool. I use a freeware converter, but you can use your own favorite converter.

Thanks for this.

I don't know what I will use this on but I`m sure I`ll find something soon :-)

The simplest way I found was to use a program called Nics WMEncoder that processes .avs scripts. An avs script is just a notepad file saved as .avs file-type=all files

here is the one line of code that constitutes the .avs script

AviSource("J_start_4.avi").Reverse()

"J_start_4.avi" is the clip i saved in WMM2 and wanted to reverse.

use Nics WMEncoder to translate script into movie file. There are walkthroughs on how to use Nics program on his site or on these WMM2 forums.

NOTE: You have to type .avs at end of file save as in notepad
NOTE: You have to choose file type : all files in the save as window before you click save.

Nics WMEncoder is the best tool I ever seen. Thanks Nic

Oakie I did exactly like you say in your tutorial but the quality of the reversed video was extremely bad. Do you have any suggestions of what I can do to make the quality better?
