    Alright, this has been dogging me since I haven't been able to search up any easy answer.

    I have a clip that I want to "reflect". I don't mean the stupid 'mirror' filter or to reverse the time, I want to flip the clip so that it plays as if we were looking through a mirror. For instance, if a woman was walking left to right in the clip, the "reflect" would cause her to walk right to left, as if the footage had been flipped.

    Any idea on how to do this?

    While you were knocking the "stupid" mirror filter, did you try the filter right next to it... 'flop' ?

    I think it's what you want.

    If you want to actually preserve the original clip and provide a mirrored effect as well, like what you might see on a water reflection, you can try This tutorial

    ( I used the Google cache link becuase the mian site seemed to be dead )

    In the clip distort settings you can swap the -360s for 360s, and the 360s for -360s.

    Don't touch the 288s.
