Why do you need a video reverser

Some of the funniest videos to watch are those that are reversed. However, not all the editing software has a reverse video feature, especially if it’s free and online.

In cinematography, there’re two reversal techniques that are used in-camera effect and the optical printer effect. The optical printer effect requires the printing of the film backwards. It’s quite a special technique to accomplish because if it’s not done right, the film will actually come out upside down.

The second effect requires the camera to be run backwards or for the shot to be taken with the camera upside down. The cameras sold today for cinematography usually support this function or can simply have the polarity switched if they have a DC motor.
