I was wondering if there is a way to freeze a video in Hitfilm. I want to introduce the characters in my video by freezing them in action and displaying information about them but I don't know how to freeze the video.
One of the easier ways to do it would be to slice the video where you want the freeze frame, press Options under the viewer, Export Frame..., Then import the frame to the media bin. Drop the frame between the slice while holding Shift so that everything moves out of the way.
Or Speed Effect = 0.0
Or, rate stretch.
