Creating a dramatic effect can be overwhelming when there are many video editing techniques to use, but adding a classic freeze frame effect can do the trick. With a simple freeze frame, creators are able to pause on a specific scene in a video to emphasize the moment or provide more context to their audience, drawing viewers' attention in.
Even if you've never used this video editing technique before, Kapwing's editor allows you to add a freeze frame to video easily in just a few clicks.
Upload a video directly from your computer to Kapwing, or paste a link to a video.
Move the playhead in the timeline to find the frame you want to hold still. Then, select the Freeze Frame button in the Timing tab to create a still image.
Add other edits to your video, and hit Export when you're satisfied with your work. Download a file of your video or share it on social media directly from Kapwing!
