Method to freeze frame at end of video clip?

    I've seen a technique where the last frame in a video clip freezes on
    the screen for 2 seconds before the start of the next video clip.

    Is there a way of doing this using Vegas Video 4?

    Regards Brian

    ULead allows you to save a jpeg of a frame. You then would place that jpeg
    in the time-line for the 2 seconds. I would thing you could probably do the
    same thing with Vegas.

    Very easy to do with Avisynth's FreezeFrame function.

    There sure is - and it's very easy. Position your timeline marker on the
    frame you want to freeze. Change the setting in your video preview window
    to "Best (Full)". Click the floppy disk icon at the top right corner of the
    preview window (it will say "Save Snapshot to File" when you're over it). A
    window opens up allowing you to save it to the directory of your choice as
    well as rename it (it will default to Image0) and select png or jpg format.
    The image is automatically added to the media pool you're currently working
    on. Add it to your timeline and drag it out to whatever lenght you want.
    That's it :)
    BTW, the feature is called "snapshot" and is discussed on p. 169 in the
    manual - but it's not in the index :-(

    Thanks Mike.
    I first saw this technique (freezing last frame) in a 1997 wedding
    video. I don't think Vegas Video was around then but I guess you can
    apply this technique to most video editors that can copy a single
    frame.
