I just upgraded to Camtasia 3, and wanted to know if there is a way in Cam3 to freeze the video on a frame. I had to do a more complicated workaround in Cam 2 for Mac, and just wondering if there is a more elegant way to do that now.
I believe the way you accomplish this is by either splitting the video at the frame you want to extend, then dragging away from the split and extending the frame. Or by exporting the frame you want to extend so you end up with an image. Then inserting and timing the image to the desired duration.
Extending a frame works the same way in Camtasia 2 as it did in Camtasia 3. If you want to extend the frame in a middle of a clip, you have to split the clip, make some room for the extended frame, and then extend the frame.
Gosh, just transitioned from Windows to Mac and now it took me like 15 min to figure that appears to be totally hidden away. Option key is convenient and now I know this I will use it. But there was no visibility of this feature until I saw that in this thread. I think at least, you'd want to have one in the Modify menu or somewhere that's visible without any additional key.
