A freeze frame question!

Hey guys has anyone figured out how to make a freeze frame clip without having it inside the original clip,then cut it out,then trim/close the gap to get the clip back all together!
This is really time consuming!

Select clip, park skimmer over the frame you what to freeze use retiming Hold (Shift H).
Otherwise Select Range and the entire range is held using Shift H from the first frame in the range.
Adjust duration of the freeze by grabbing the red bar in the retiming display bar.

I'm not sure I understand your objective but I hope the above answers your question. There's no need to cut anything.

I have the same question, i know this, Select the project, and in the Timeline, place the playhead at the frame you want to save, and choose Share > Save Current Frame.But i use to load footage into the view / then go SHIFT N, that would make a freeze frame of the video, then you could drag it into the time line, i found this in the i movie help - skim your playhead to any point in a video clip that you want to capture as a still image. Right-click and choose "Add Still Frame to Project" from the menu that pops up. iMovie automatically creates a still frame and ads it to the end of your project.

All we want to do is Crab a still, from the video, it would be good if apple would add it to fcpx so once you freeze a frame it auto adds it to the event library.

Has anyonef found a less time consuming way to add freeze frame as iMovie? I could use iMovie but quality is not as good. Thanks
