    It’s way easier to do this in premiere, just put your scrubber on the frame you want to freeze and export the frame (or hit the camera button in your sequence viewer, in cs5.5) and cut the clip in half with the razor and just stick the exported frame back in your timeline in the middle of your cut clip, this will save you 20 minutes

    learning how NOT to do something is sometimes more beneficial than learning how to do something..

    I actually have a question for this tutorial. Instead of creating a “Freeze Frame”, the way you’re showing here, why not just go to the spot in your video, where you want to freeze, and take a “Snapshot”? Then split your video, and add the snapshot in between them. What would be the benefit of doing it this way? And what would be the deficit of doing it with snapshot? Just wondering because I also use Vegas Pro and since they have no “FF” option that is how I do it.

    thx men! it’s not so easy like in adobe premiere but thx a lot.. now i don’t need to switch the programms only for a freeze frame ^_^

    For Mac users. To go forward one frame, hold command and then hit the right arrow key. To go backward one frame, hold command and hit the left arrow key.

    I don’t have PageDown in my MacBook, what’s the alternate? Any menu option or button in the interface for “going to next frame”?
