Hi community,

I have a question for you! Is it possible to extend frame time in thousandth of a second? I've tried the "extend frame" function but it works only in seconds.

Thanks in advance for your replay

The minimum by nature of the "frame" is one frame--that is a single frame cannot be sliced. With a 60 fps maximum speed in the current version, your theoretical limit is 1/60th of a second. I have never been able to get the software to extend less than 0.1 seconds, which at 3 30 fps is 3 frames and at 60 fps is 6 frames.

If you use auto stitching. After you extend the frame you can apply a cut at the end of the extended frame.
Then, if you zoom into the timeline as far as you can. You can drag and reduce the extended frame all the way down to one frame of duration fairly easily.
If the media doesn't have auto stitching applied. It's just a matter of dragging the duration down to one frame. Or whatever number of frames are desired.

Hi,

Thanks for your answers.  I have a question for ddmyan, in your opinion Is it possible  to extend the frame at least 0.5 seconds?.

Thanks.

Sure. First, a little background to clarify some of the previous misconceptions. The extend frame feature does not actually extend a single frame. It creates and inserts additional duplicate still frames of the one selected. So if your original clip is 30 fps, then using the extend frame feature and adding 0.5 seconds will insert 15 still copies of the selected frame.

Here's how to do that. 
  1. Position the playhead where you want to extend the frames.
  2. <Shift>+<E> to extend. Note you need room to the right on the timeline for the extension to occur. For a half second, move any downstream clips at least a half second open to the right.
  3. On the Duration pop-up, set the decimal duration with a leading zero like the screenshot and click OK.
