How to Freeze Frame in After Effects

Freeze frame freezes 1 frame from the video. You might need it for editing purposes or to speed up your workflow. While you’re working with a few layers you might freeze frame the rest.

For both cases, you can use our free script that we developed at AEJuice.

  1. Download and install for Windows or macOS
  2. Go to Window – AEJuice Pack Manager 4
  3. Click the freeze icon
  4. You’ll see freeze frame marker on selected layers
  5. Press the icon again to unfreeze

The script freezes all selected layers or all layers if no layers are selected. When you unfreeze you do not need to select any layers. The script automatically detects that the freeze marker exists in the composition and unfreezes all layers that have the AEJuice marker.
