There ist still no support for extending CLIPs placed on the TIMELINE in Camtasia 2019. 

Adding a very "short animation clip" (e.g a "company logo", -> endless looped animation file, ~ 20sec) is not a real solution, since currently this clip must be copied manually serveral times on the timeline to fill up e.g. 20min long presentation !!

Extending a single frame of a clip is support, extending the whole clip (repeat from beginning) is NOT. WHY ?

  .... must be repeated 100x  ?????

FEATURE NEEDs to be ADDED !!! Right ?

assuming the company logo clip is a video clip, you can extend its play time by applying clip speed adjustment; this will make the clip play slower if you extend its duration using a adjustment factor less than 1.0

if you use the same logo clip a lot, try making one long playing sequence [copying], then add to Library so you can grab and trim for use in other projects

Thanks, but unfortunately this is not a very practicable solution ...

Lot of motion logos (~tv station logo) are often rendered at 30fps and are running from 2-10 seconds (e.g. "one full rotation of an item" ). Streching this 360 degree animation now to period of e.g. 20 minutes  ...  useless !

Note:  I have already added also this clip my own library - but thanks for the hint ...

Extending a "movie clip" (=repeating) is not very complicated ... lot of low-cost video editing software solutions do have this feature.

It sounds like what you are looking for is the ability to "loop" the media and set the duration to some specific length. Is that correct?
