There is Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11. Please confirm that you question relates to Premiere Elements 11 and indicate on what computer operating system it is running.
You do not record a video clip in Premiere Elements 11 or other. Are you talking about a webcam?
You can import a video clip, edit it, export it. During the edit of the clip, you can apply effects to it among other things.
One opportunity would be to right click the video clip on the Timeline, select Time Stretch/Reverse Speed.
Please try it and see if that is the effect that you seek.
If you need clarfication on any of the above, do not hesitate to ask.
Thanks for the help. I'm just learning the program and somehow "Time Stretch" under tools didn't quite add up to reversing the clip. I need a manual with a good index! I do have the Adobe Premier Elements 11, ver. 11 0.
Thank you. clogger96
There is no manual from Adobe, but there are several good books, plus some other learning resources in this Tips & Tricks article: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/800455?tstart=0
I highly recommend Steve Grisetti's Muvipix Guide to Adobe Premiere (he has one for most versions). HIs Cool Tips & Tricks books are great companions to the Muvipix Guide, too.
For tutorials, his Basic Training and Learning Series, plus the AdobeTV series are great.
The following has links to the 319 page PRE12 manual and 238 page Organizer manual that will include all the PRE11 features - https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-elements.html.

How did the Time Stretch's dialog Reverse Speed not work for you? Did you get the prescribed effect and decide it was not what you wanted or did it not apply (malfunction)?
I have another approach for you to try as you re-evaluate the Time Stretch, if necessary.
Select your clip on the Expert workspace Timeline, go to fx Effects/Transform/Horizontal Flip. Is that the type of Reverse that you are looking for?
What are you trying to do....something like a split screen where you want the two images facing on another?
Please check out the above.
Important Add On...Since you are using Premiere Elements 11 not 12, the following links to the Premiere Elements 11 Help PDF and Elements Organizer 11 would be

Excellent places to start. These can be printed (lots of pages) or the file saved to your computer hard drive or just viewed where they are.
The reverse effects DID work for me. I'm doing a short video of/for my grandkids. They've asked me to do something "funny" like I did of their older siblings. I have videos of them going down a water slide and a few other activities; I wanted them to "fly" back up the slide, etc. in a finished DVD for them. I'll look at your other suggestion also. I'm new to the program, but not new to video editing (previously used Pinnacle). This is my first project and hope to do a lot more with Premier Elements.
Thank you for your help & suggested readings. clogger96
Thanks for the reply.
From what you described for what you wanted to do, it appears that the Time Stretch dialog's reverse speed would be perfect for you. Please refer to the following.
Screenshot where I have duplicated that original clip. The first on the Timeline is the original, and the second is the one with the Time Stretch - Reverse Speed.
I just ran the above to a YouTube video of the effect. It can be seen at
If you have any problems viewing the view, please let me know. I have it listed as Unlisted
which means that it is viewable to those clicking on the above link.
Please let us know if you need clarification on anything that I have written.
My reverses came out fine. Now I just have to finish the project. I have most of the editing and inserting of stills done. Next I will tacKle titling and transitions and adding a music track.
Thanks again. Clogger96
Many thanks for the follow up good news that the reverses came out fine. It is an effect that will be enjoyed by the children and others viewing your video. Great job.
Continued success with your Premiere Elements projects.
