TikTok videos can range from basic point-and-shoot posts to complex comedy skits. This massive scope is largely because of how easy TikTok makes it to customize your videos — you can add filters, music, other videos, and more.
If you've been interested in upping your posting game, or have been inspired by another TikTok you saw, you might want to try adding a “Reverse” effect to your video. This will make your video run backwards — a simple change that can spawn many cool ideas.
Here's how to access and use the Reverse effect on your TikTok videos.

How to reverse a TikTok
Once you're already logged into your account, this should be quick and easy to accomplish:
2. Tap the plus sign in the bottom-middle section of the screen.
3. Press and hold the red button to start recording your video, and select the red check mark when you're done.
4. Tap “Effects” at the bottom of your screen — it's an icon that looks like a clock.
5. At the end of the new list that appears, tap “Time.”
6. Select “Reverse” — you'll then see a preview of your new, reversed video appear on the screen.
7. If you like the Reverse effect, tap “Save” in the top-right corner.
8. Tap “Done” in the upper-right corner of the screen when you're finished with your video, and post it as you normally would.
