I've got a composition where I want to repeat certain frames (on all layers) so but I don't want to overwrite the frame after the one being repeated, i.e. I want the composition to become a frame longer, so for example if I want repeat frame 4 then the order of the frames would change from
Can this be done with time remap? If so, given that there are several layers in the composition, rather than using time remap on each layer seperately, should I pre-compose all layers into a new composition, then apply the time remap to that new comp?
Any help would be much appreciated - I haven't really used time remap before I'm struggling with it a bit
should I pre-compose all layers into a new composition, then apply the time remap to that new comp?
You could easily do what you're asking. Simply set a keyframe at the frame you want to repeat. Copy that keyframe. Paste it on the next frame. And then scoot your end keyframe one frame further down the timeline.

Thanks Szalam - thats exactly what I was looking for!
