Reversing Footage in Premiere 6.0
A question from a customer in an email: how do you reverse a piece of footage in Premiere 6.0? I know how to do this in AfterEffects, but never looked at the problem in Premiere.
A few quick experiments later (what, read the manual?) – its even easier than I first thought.
Here we have a piece of footage loaded in a bin. It is going to be our target we are going to reverse time over:
Right-click (Mac users: control-click) on this piece of footage and select "Speed"
Now all we need to do is change the rate at which this plays. Typing in a negative number doesn’t change time and entropy in the universe, but it will reverse the playback of this clip. -100% means run it at the same speed, but in reverse. Viola!
