I'm using a template which has a few scenes. Each scene displays for approx. 5 seconds.
At the beginning and end of each scene, various key frames are added for animation purposes.

Is there an easy manner to extend a scene. What I would like to do is just go to a particular frame (in de middle of the scene) and just insert 5 seconds to have the scene displaying for 10 seconds.

Thank you!

Hi Patrick,
If you cannot extend the scene on the timeline then the footage does not exist. If you need to create longer clips then you will need to either Slow the original clips down _-Time Remap" or rebuild from scratch - or if you can do it with a sequence of freeze frames you could possibly extend you scene this way. Not sure what you are attempting. . .
Hope it helps.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for your reply.

What I had was a set of graphical elements coming-in, moving out, while different camera's became active and were making movements.

I was able eventually to stretch and slow-down everything. It did require a lot of handwork in order to keep all synchronized.
