Freeze a single frame and stretch it?
on Jun 16, 2011 at 11:08:12 pm

Hi, pulling a little hair out here, and finding nothing online. There has to be a simple way to freeze a frame at the end of a clip/layer and stretch that frame under/over another layer.

Messed around with remapping, time stretch, etc, and can't get anything to work...it just messes the layer up that I'm trying to get to 'hold' at it's end.

Is there a fairly easy way to do this?

Thanks for any help
Sean

For anyone searching the forums who stumbles across this and wonders how it's done:
Apply time remapping to your layer, then extend the layer's end point.

I've had success rendering out a Photoshop still of the frame in question, and re-importing it as footage. Then I can adjust the in/out/duration of the freeze frame as needed. It's a trick I stole from Final Cut Pro.

Michael Szalapski's response seems to be the best, most efficient way from within AE.

Ok asshole, what was it?

(Thank you Michael Szalapski, I can't stand it when OPs pull crap like this.)
