Create a Hold Frame: A Sneaky Tip to Extend Your Video
Software: Apple FCP X
Sometimes there are instances when you need a bit more video in your project but there are not enough handles on a particular clip to give you what you need. If the video is stationary at the point where you need more frames, you have the option of inserting a Hold Frame to give you as much video as you need.
To insert a Hold Frame, have the Position Indicator in the Timeline resting on the frame that you want to duplicate. Then click Shift + H. A frame from your video will be placed at the position of the playhead, allowing you to extend it however long you need it.
