Are you trying to stretch a stll frame?
Use Duration instead or just drag it out longer with the select tool
Well, because it is a 'frame', one frame, there is really no other way for it to be. No?
I'm taking the last frame of a video file and attempting to stretch this. But it only stretches if I am zoomed completely in. Does it work like that for you?
Does it work like that for you?
I dont know.
I have never tried to rate stretch a single frame because I cant think why anyone would consider it logical to do so.
If you want a Freeze Frame...there are at least 2 better ways to do so.
OK, it's never caused any issues for me in the past. So you are saying there are other ways to do what it is that I am doing? Why wouldn't someone cut a single frame and stretch it?
Because as you say...you have to Zoom in to a single frame to try and get a grip on it with a blunt tool.
CS6 "un sharpened" the Cursor ( for a different but valid reason) but it could cause an issue with what you are doing the way you are doing it.
Use a Frame Grab
Use a Frame Hold
Both will stretch using just the normal edit cursor. (V)
The Rate Stretch Tools brings other issues to what you are doing. eg. you have to have room to "stretch" a clip.
OK, aside from the UI bug- not sure why a person would be making an illogical desicion by stretching a frame.
Thanks for the tip, just about as many clicks, no zoom issue.
Is there any documentation you can point me towards the 'unsharpened cursor'?
The logic of using a rate stretch tool on something that does not have a rate is what I was saying. Only an opinion).
eg one frame is not running at any given frame rate - fps.
Whats the UI Bug?
Some users are struggling with the new cursor ( edit modes) in CS6. One needs to be zoomed in a little to the edit point so as it "connects".
Search "sharpen cursor" in the forum.
I am o.k with it how it is but agree that it would be great to have an option to turn it ON/OFF
I use the strech tool to make a freeze frame. Find the Grab Frame to cumbersome.
One is able to stretch the frame beyond the outpoint of the clip.
Instead of using the stretch tool to extend the clip (assuming its trimmed sufficient) is to use the Extend Edit (E). One does not have to zoom in.
Edit to Playhead is a neat idea for that Ann. Must try it. (I use it elsewhere frequently anyway.)
I tend to use Frame Holds so generally there is something to find and Drag. "E" would work great on that as well.
I would find it tiresome dealing with a single razor cut frame in the first instance and as per the O.Ps method.
