How to flip a video
Step 1. Drag and drop the video or image into the timeline
Drag and drop your video or image from Your media library into the timeline at the bottom of your video.
Step 2. Click on the clip in the timeline to select it
The clip will be outlined in green when it's selected. Click the Transform menu that appears in the top left of the editor window.
Step 3. In the Transform menu, click the icons under the heading FLIP
You will see a FLIP section on the right side of the Transform menu, as shown here:
In this section, click the Horizontal icon if you would like to flip the video horizontally.
Click Vertical if you would like to flip the video vertically.
NOTE: You can also rotate videos and images 90° or 180° by using the ROTATE arrows in the same menu.
Making text show the correct way
Use the same flip process to make text photographed backward (e.g., in a mirror, through glass, or using a reverse-facing camera), and face the right way. Just flip it horizontally, as shown in this example:
Undoing a change
You can return the video or image to its original state by selecting it in the timeline and clicking the horizontal or vertical icon again in the menu.
Alternatively, drag and drop the original video or image into your timeline again from your media library.
