There are two ways you can freeze the action of a clip in Adobe Premiere Pro that sound alike: a frame hold and a frame hold segment. What is the difference between the two? In this video, author Jeff Greenberg walks you through how to create a freeze frame that continues through the rest of your clip creating a frame hold in Premiere Pro.
- There are times where when I want to adjust a clip on the timeline. I want its playback to continue and then stop, and just replace the rest of the clip with a freeze frame. That's what a frame hold does. And it's perfect for that situation where you have an action you want it to pause, because you then intend to add titling on top of it, and maybe even blur that background a little bit. We're going to take a look how to do that in Premiere Pro. I'm going to go ahead and play through this footage. And I love the moment when she's at the top of this weightlifting.
Right there. I'm going to right click on the clip. And I'm going to choose, Add Frame Hold. The clip becomes divided here on the timeline. This section is playing at normal speed. And then this is a freeze frame. Let's see that happen. Stop. And with it set like this it would be a real natural for you to put titling on top of it, and maybe even add a little bit of a blur, and a darkening effect to the clip.
So this is a great way to stop a moment, and just have it repeat for the rest of the length of the clip.
