I've seen a technique where the last frame in a video clip freezes on
the screen for 2 seconds before the start of the next video clip.

Is there a way of doing this using Vegas Video 4?

ULead allows you to save a jpeg of a frame. You then would place that jpeg
in the time-line for the 2 seconds. I would thing you could probably do the
same thing with Vegas.

There sure is - and it's very easy. Position your timeline marker on the
frame you want to freeze. Change the setting in your video preview window
to "Best (Full)". Click the floppy disk icon at the top right corner of the
preview window (it will say "Save Snapshot to File" when you're over it). A
window opens up allowing you to save it to the directory of your choice as
well as rename it (it will default to Image0) and select png or jpg format.
The image is automatically added to the media pool you're currently working
on. Add it to your timeline and drag it out to whatever lenght you want.
That's it :)
BTW, the feature is called "snapshot" and is discussed on p. 169 in the
manual - but it's not in the index :-(

Very easy to do with Avisynth's FreezeFrame function.

Thanks Mike.
I first saw this technique (freezing last frame) in a 1997 wedding
video. I don't think Vegas Video was around then but I guess you can
apply this technique to most video editors that can copy a single
frame.
