    Hold the Option key and drag the edge of the frame in the timeline. :)

    O! Yes! Thank you. But how can I delete only freeze frame ? Only by dragging it back ?

    I wish I knew.  Sometimes I would like to delete it but I have yet to be able.  I have to start over with the original recording often or copy and paste another portion from the same recording.

    Thanks Leif!  I think I found this a few weeks ago.  I had just forgotten (senior moment). :)

    When you extend a frame, it is stitched with the original clip. This is nice since you can move the media around or add effects and both clips are kept together as one.  When you want to delete just the extended frame section, you need to unstitch the media (right-click or Opt-Click the stitch and choose 'Unstitch Media').  Now the two clips are separate and you can modify, move or delete each independent of the other.

    So just to be clear. We can only extend the end of a video clip on Mac? In other words, you cannot extend a frame in the middle of a video clip. 

    The use case for doing this would be where you recorded the click through for a powerpoint separately from the voice over. When sync'ing up the audio and video we need to add or remove time from the video clips to match the slide changes and buildout. 

    When we need to add time for that sync'ing should we be splitting the video and extending frames using the Opt-Click method?

    Hi there

    While I'm not a Mac user, over on Windows I believe you can achieve it by positioning the playhead where you want to extend the frame. Then split the media. Then drag the right side of the media (and all other media) down the track on the timeline a bit to make room, then you will see Extend Frame become available.

    i suppose an alternate way would be to position the playhead where you want the freeze frame, then export the frame as a separate image that you could then add to the timeline in a blank spot or possibly on a track above where you exported it.

    Cheers... Rick :)

    Joe, you simply split the clip, drag the right side out of the way, and then extend the frame of the one you want. I do this all of the time. It’s very good if the narration is too long or I want to emphasise something on the screen.
