How to freeze a frame in After Effects?

This article explains how the freeze-frame button works. After Effects requires a lot of resources and to speed up the editing process we solo the layers. However, sometimes you need to see other objects in the scene. That’s where you would use the freeze-frame button. It temporarily freezes the selected layers while you continue editing and don’t overload an After Effects. Press the button again to remove the freeze.

1. Select a layer or multiple layers

2. Press the freeze-frame button

The freeze-frame ​button will temporarily freeze the selected layers and add the ​AEJuice ​Freeze Frame marker. 

3. Press the button again to unfreeze

You do not need to select layers again. The plugin will remove all frozen frames in the active composition.
