I want to play a portion of my video project backwards in Sony Vegas. How to do this?
Playing the clip backwards is easy in Sony Vegas. To play an event backwards, or reverse the clip others might say, select the event on the timeline and right-click it.
Next, press the Reverse option from the context menu and wait a couple of seconds for Vegas to complete the task for you. After the clip is reversed, a tiny left-arrow will appear alongside the modified event.
That's it! Your clip is now being played backwards.
This trick applies to all versions of Sony Vegas, including the Movie Studio edition.
