So, my intention is to speed a clip up and then freeze frame.

The footage: 1080 29.97p

The Project: 720 29.97p

My process: LAYER 1 - time remap and compress a 4 min clip to 5 secs. LAYER 2 - no remap but last frame is a freeze frame.

The problem - whether layer 2 is there or not, Layer 1 is experiencing a shift in position making the cut between 1 and 2 impossible.

Something is obviously up, but what?

Any suggestions appreciated.

Maybe you inadvertantly changed the position of one of the layers.
Maybe you have one layer parented to another, and the parenting wasn't done the proper way.
Maybe you're using a position expression, and it it isn't written the correct way.
Maybe you used a clip with a good deal of motion in it, and the freeze frame isn't the same frame where the speedup ends.

Maybe it's something else you don't think is significant and didn't mention.

But check out the first four: they're the most likely possibilities.

you shouldn't need to do a freeze frame on a second layer. simply extending the outpoint of the time remapped layer beyond the last time remap keyframe will cause the clip to hold and that last frame, producing a freeze frame.
