How to extend a frame in Camtasia | Camtasia 2021 Tutorial

This is how you can extend a frame in Camtasia. I'm using Camtasia 2021, and if you want to create a still frame or a freeze frame for a number of seconds, this is how you do it. In this tutorial for Camtasia I show you how you can extend any frame on a clip on your timeline, for as many seconds as you like. If you need to add narration to a clip and you find that you need more time on a particular still image to explain things, you can expand that frame until you've finished narrating.

Hello. Let me show you how you can extend a frame in Camtasia. I'm using Camtasia 2021, and if you want to create a still frame or a freeze frame for a number of seconds, this is how you do it. I have a video clip on my timeline here, and if I scrub with my play head here, I want to freeze the action right here for a few seconds.

So all I have to do is just click on the clip, right-click on the play head or on the clip and say Extend Frame. Or I can just press Shift + E and then Camtasia is going to ask me how long do I want that frame to stay still until the video resumes playback. Let's say I wanted to stay still for three seconds, type 3 in here. You can use these arrows to adjust the duration up and down and click OK.

So now you can zoom in and see that my clip has this, these little cuts here. They are part of the clip. If I move it, it's going to move with it, but you can see these indications to show that there's been a stitch and a cut.

So if I play my video now, you will see when it gets around to that point where I created my extend frame, the video will freeze and for three seconds it's going to stay there and then continue playback. So this is how you extend the frame in a clip in Camtasia. I hope this helps.
