When I saw the trailer of Dead Island, my first thought was: “How to reverse it?” :)
So here is how to play a video backwards: open the application
kino; open the video file (Kino will import it and convert to .DV); click on the tab FX on the right side -> select the tab Overwrite -> Advanced Options, then tick “Reverse“; Render (button in the bottom right corner); finally Export (the tab under FX).
The exported .DV file can be played with VLC for instance.
I found this tip in this video.
I have wanted to make some simple videos for a long time. A few weeks ago I couldn’t wait any longer so I looked after some video editing solutions. Under Linux I didn’t really find a user-friendly software for this task, so I tried Windows Movie Maker. It’s very easy to use but maybe it’s too simple. Furthermore, there are different versions of it under Windows XP and Windows 7. But it’s free.
There are some professional solutions like Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects, etc., but they are too complex and too expensive. I wanted something simple that is easy to learn and still you can do nice videos with it. And that’s how I found the AVS video editor.
I prefer open source software and I didn’t buy many programs in my life but I think it’s a very good offer. You get a complete suite for video/audio editing.
