Pixel Map Videos Will No Longer Play In Reverse in v3.0.0 and Up


Starting in version 3.0.0 of Eos Family software and going forward, Pixel Map video and gif media will no longer play backwards.  The {Loop Reverse} and {Once Reverse} options in the layer will no longer force video and gifs to play back in reverse.  This does not affect still images.

Explanation of Issue

This is caused by some under the hood changes to the pixel map engine that were required in version 3 and above.  These changes relate to a change from using Quicktime Player in the background, which is no longer supported, to using FFMPeg. 


Currently the only option is to use a third party program to re-encode the video as reverse and import the reversed video or gif content into Eos.
