Personally, I like the control of Export/Share as a Still Frame, and using that to get the Freeze Frame that I need.
One can also use Frame Hold. Here's the info on that (from PrE 4, so there might be some differences in PrE 8):
Hold a video frame
If you want to hold a single still frame on the screen for the duration of a clip, while letting its soundtrack play normally, use the Frame Hold feature.
You can hold on the clip’s In point, Out point, or at a frame you designate with Marker 0 (zero) within the clip. If the video includes linked audio, the audio still plays for the duration of the clip. You can delete the audio or disable it if desired.
- Double-click a clip in the Timeline to display it in the Preview window.
- To hold on a specific frame, rather than the In or Out point of the clip, drag the current-time indicator in the mini-timeline of the Preview window to the frame you want held. Choose Clip > Set Clip Marker > Other Numbered. Then, specify 0 (zero) for Set Numbered Marker, and click OK.Important: You must set a Clip marker in the clip, not a Timeline marker in the movie.
- In the Preview window, click the Close button.
- Select the clip in the Timeline.
- Choose Clip > Video Options > Frame Hold.
- In the Frame Hold Options dialog box, select Hold On.
- Choose the frame you want to hold from the menu: In Point, Out Point, or Marker 0.
- Specify the following options as desired, and click OK:
Note: If you set the hold frame on an In or Out point, changing the In or Out point doesn’t change the freeze frame. On the other hand, if set to hold on Marker 0, moving the marker does change the frame displayed.Good luck,Hunt
- Hold Filters
- Prevents any keyframed effect settings (if any are present) from animating during the duration of the clip. Effect settings use the values at the held frame.
- Removes one field from an interlaced video clip and doubles the remaining field, so that interlace artifacts are not apparent in the freeze frame.
And, of course, the simplest way is to just click on the little camera icon along the bottom of the Monitor panel. This feature is literally called Freeze Frame!
Eactly that's what I was looking for .
Thanks a lot!
