Quote Freeze Punk! Make sure you watch this video to learn how to create freeze frames using PowerDirector Mobile.




Sorry but it's a thumbs down for me on this one. Don't take any of this personally.

Many of the things I describe below are generic with most YouTube channels.

I'm only singling you out because I was particularly disappointed that having watched your video, I still cannot do freeze frames for the reasons below.

I very much liked another of your videos and I would have commented on it if the comments were not turned off.


The reasons...

1) You ask people to add a hash tag "in the comments below" but comments are turned off.

2) 43 seconds into the video and you acknowledge the delay on getting to the content. You even say "I've kept you waiting long enough"...

Then you say "before we get started I wanna remind you to like and subscribe", then the obligatory image of the bell urging viewers to press it.

Then you tell the viewer (who has just searched for "how to do freeze frames") , all about what freeze frames are"

Then, for the benefit of (?? blind "viewers"??) you describe the clip of a baby walking.

It's over 2 minutes before we get to the content

3) Not your fault but I always have to resize (using the crop tool) videos to fill the screen on this device. Same as my other previous 2 devices. Otherwise there are black gaps around the screen.

Therefore, your screenshot method is very hit and miss, since I then have to resize (crop) the screenshot to exactly the same size.

Since the video and image are next to each other on the same track on the time line, overlaying and blending isn't an option. So it's trial and error which can be painstaking.

Sometimes I can do this fairly quickly and smoothly. Other times I try for 20 minutes or so and then give up.

The reason I clicked on your video was because I thought you had a better way.

Also the subject is on a plain white background which makes it much easier. Sadly most video isn't on a nice plain background.


4) The next step is done using photo director which I don't have. This should have been made clear at the start of the video or even in the title or description so that I would know not to waste my time watching your video.

But then if you are honest about the content, you don't get as many clicks right?

I hope I haven't been too hard on you. I have only watched one other of your videos because I can already do the other stuff.

This video is pure genius. I never would have thought of doing this. Thank you. I have used this in a couple of videos and it looks very effective.

I have my own version of it which I will share with you.

1) Open up any drawing/editing app and draw a straight line. Reasonably thin, any colour.

2) Stretch the line so it goes right across the screen horizontally.

3) Save the image in a decently high resolutuon size.

4) Open up PowerDirector Mobile app. (PDMA)

5) I always start projects this way
but its probably not essential:

Add 4 x Black blanks from the colour board to the main timeline. (This just gives you freedom to go back and change or amend the start or add things if you need to)


6) Add the image of the ine that you made to the 3rd track down.

7) Use the keyframe tool to move the line to the left or right of the screen, so it's out of shot.

Extend the image along your track so that it is longer time wise. Mine is 1 minute long in the example.

9) Open the keyframe tool again. Move the line to the opposite side of the screen. So it now divides the screen horizontally. I used 10 seconds for the line to cross the screen.

10) Return to the keyframe tool and for the remainder of the clip (so this would be 50 seconds on my clip, since I made it 1 minute long in step stretch the clip upwards and downwards so that it fills the whole screen by the time the minute is up.


There you go.



11) What I do then, is using the time frame in OPACITY is to change the opacity from 100 at 15 seconds, down to about 20 at 60 seconds.
This looks better than I have described.

12) Add a video or image directly under your line image on the next track down.

13) Use the timeframe tool to give this the opposite opacity to the line image. I start on 0 then stay at 0 until nearly the end. Basically so they blend into each other.


I didn't realise how long this would take to describe and I have a lot to do this morning. So I will return to this post in the future. If you can use timeframes then just have a play with it.
