I have an animated globe that is spinning from the right to left. Since this is supposed to simulate Earth's rotation, it should be from the left to the right.

How can I reverse the already created animation on the timeline?

For this particular case, we are talking about a simple animation where two layers get moved from point A to point B and loop takes care of the rest.

If relevant I am using Adobe Flash Professional CS6.

Ask Superman to fly backwards around your animation really really fast. – Lauren Ipsum Aug 30 '13 at 16:58
@LaurenIpsum He said no, he's filming with Batman right now... any other ideas? – Zuul Aug 30 '13 at 17:07

Without seeing a screen shot of your setup, or how your animation is laid out, it may be as easy as:

  1. Highlight your frames in the timeline
  2. Right-click > Reverse Frames

That's if your globe is a stop-animation where each key frame represents a position. If not, then you'll need to provide more detail on your setup so we can be more helpful.
