Chapter 3. iMovie > Create a still frame

Create a still frame

You can make a still frame (a static image) from any single frame of video in your movie. You might use the still frame as a title background for visual effect or to simulate a slideshow effect. One of our favorite techniques is to create a still frame of the last frame of a clip, then place the still frame after the clip, creating a freeze frame effect for the end of the clip. You can set the duration of the still frame to whatever length you want.

1.
Select a clip in the Clips Pane or in the Timeline.

2.
Position the Playhead so the frame you want is showing in the Monitor.

3.
From the Edit menu, choose “Create Still Frame.” The still image is placed in the Clips Pane.

4.
Drag the new still frame to a position in the Timeline.

When you drag the edge of a clip, watch the bottom of the window to see the clip's duration change.
