Unquestionably, Tiktok is revolutionising the world of video editing. Its in-built features and effects unlock many possibilities - one of them is making videos run backwards. Let us find out how.

For videos shorter than 10 seconds, you can use Snapchat:

  1. Open the app

  4. Explore the filters until you see an icon of three backward arrows (it is the reverse effect)
  5. Download the video and upload it on TikTok.
