I'm not sure how to properly explain it but I've got a freeze frame (I've created it with add frame hold) and I want to copy and paste an animation onto that freeze frame but inside the video effects window I just have like 1 frame of footage. I can't drag anything or stretch anything. This is NOT true. I've stretched out my freeze frame to 45 seconds but I can't animate it. If I copy the key frames it just starts playing the animation and instantly stops and does nothing (still displays the frame).
So what is going on here? I've already tried nesting it but nothing works with that one frame.

In its computer mind Premiere is still seeing and treating that as one frame, it just continually references/plays that one frame over and over in the timeline for whatever length of time you specified (stretched). To add animation to it you need to export from the timeline the stretched out part and then import it back into the project.

Dear Joe,

I know Premiere sees it just as one frame but WHY is that the case? It's a freeze frame or hold frame or whatever Premiere calls it. The clip is 4 seconds in my time line and not just 1 frame. I already NESTED that one frame so that I would end up with a 4 second long nest and tried to add an animation on it but while it displays the full 4 seconds of the clip in the time line it will only play part of the animation (more than 1 frame but the length of that clip / frame thing in the motion editor) and then just display the clip without any motion.

Premiere is just pointing to that one frame in that one file on your drive. When you do a Frame Hold and stretch it out Premiere is not generating an new video file. It's saying, for every point on the timeline (of your new stretched clip) refer to this one particular fame in the file. The fact that you are able to nest that clip and do any kind of key-framing on it at all is probably a fluke that needs to be eliminated or developed to behave as you are trying to use it. Let's hope for the latter.

Again the easiest option and least frustrating might be to export the stretched clip, import it back into the project, then animate.
