Step 5: Moving the Freeze Frame

By default, the Freeze Frame clip you just created will have appeared on the Main_Video track. You need it to be one track higher, on the Freeze_Frame track, for the effect to work. In this section, you'll correct this problem with a quick drag-and-drop.

Task: Move the Freeze Frame up one track by following these steps:

  1. Click the Freeze Frame clip on the Timeline. It should have a .bmp prefix (see Figure 17).
  2. Drag-and-drop the Freeze Frame clip up from the Main_Video track to the Freeze_Frame track (see Figure 18). Make sure that the head of the Freeze Frame clip lines up with the first marker on the Timeline.
  3. With step 2, you created a gap on the Main_Video Track between the two clips. Right-click inside this gap (see Figure 19) and select Delete and Close Gap from the contextual menu (see Figure 20).
  4. Click the tail of the Freeze Frame clip to grab it. Drag the clip up or down the Timeline until it lines up with the second marker—the one where the object must start moving again (see Figure 21).
