How to Add Freeze Frame in Movavi Video Editor

Over the past few years, I've used a variety of video editors to create videos including from some big name brands like Camtasia, Adobe, Hitfilm and others.

The type of video editor you use will largely depend on the types of videos you create. Most of my videos are tutorial-type videos or short promotional product or review videos.

One thing that I always like to do is keep things simple in whatever I do. In terms of video editing, I chose to go with Movavi because it's simplistic, easy-to-learn and use. Yet, it's powerful enough to tackle fairly complex video editing work.

Movavi Video Editor has many different editing features, including being able to add filters, transitions, text animations and annotations, panning and zooming, adding watermarks as well as, the green screen or chroma key feature.

In this blog post, I will showcase the Freeze Frame feature. This video editing feature is particularly useful when you want pause the video to highlight or bring attention to a particular point you're trying to make in the video. I've created a video tutorial on How to Add a Freeze Frame in Movavi Video Editor below. You will also find written instructions further down below:

When you add a freeze frame to a video, it adds a still image to pause the video and then resume video playback. You can add a freeze frame at the beginning, middle or end of the video. In the above video tutorial, I showcase two different examples. In example 1, I add a freeze frame at the beginning; and in example 2, I add a freeze frame at the start of the video.

Here are the steps to follow to add a freeze frame to your video:

  1. Import your video on the main track;
  2. Place the play-head at the appropriate position;
  3. Right-click on the play-head and choose Insert Freeze Frame;
  4. and finally, adjust the duration of the freeze frame.

Once you add the freeze frame, you can adjust the the duration by dragging the edges. You can also add filters, animated text, and annotations to the still image. You can use your creativity to use this feature in different situations in your video editing. Below is one example of how I used the freeze frame to create this sketch-to-video effect:
