Step 1: Get Quicktime

If you don't have it you will need to download it.the link for apple and then windows is below

once again the Lego man has nothing to do with the Instructable

Step 2: Take the Video

O.k Now take the video, and remember when you film this if you walk in the video you must walk facing backwards.So when you play it backwards then you look like you are facing forwards.

Jumping and diving into water look sweeet, also jumping out of the water and still having dry clothes looks good.

Trampolines are fine as long as you jump on to or off them.

Step 3: Name the Video

As the name suggests name the video.
the name does not matter.It's just to remember it by

Just Lego again(the pic)

Step 4: Open Quick Time

Open the video in Quicktime. Do not play it (do not click the play button) Hold shift (the shift key,hold down)and double click the picture of the beginning of the clip. it should play backwards. Awesome. voila!

Step 5: Done

It works for me. hope it works for you

My second Instructable comments would be nice

    This isn't explained very well, are you "walking backwards" or "Playing videos backwards using Quicktime player"? What is this about, what are you doing? L

    you should include a video - forwards as well as backwards to show the difference. Screenshots of the video and video editing would be a good idea too!
