Freeze Parts of a Video With Extend Frame

Use Extend Frame if you need more time to explain a particular screen or moment in your recording.

Extend Frame

Extend the frame of a recording so you have more time to finish an action or thought.

To extend a frame, hold the “Alt” key on Windows or the “Option” key on Mac and then click and drag from the end of a clip. A copy of the frame is added to the end of the clip.

If you’re on Windows, a second way to extend a frame is to select a clip, place the playhead at the frame you want to extend, then right-click and select Extend Frame.


Extend Frame + Ripple Move

Extend frame becomes even more powerful when paired with a ripple move. Use a ripple move to create the exact amount of space you need on the timeline, then extend the frame to fill the space.
