What is the freeze-frame effect? A freeze-frame effect is when a clip or a particular scene from a video is suddenly halted to add emphasis to that clip or suspense.

The freeze clip effect is a nostalgic moment for our childhood games. Remember when we were kids, we would play a wide range of fun games and challenges, and the freeze game isn’t left out.

The freeze game during our childhood days would determine how long a kid could stay motionless. Every kid would make the goofiest poses and stance.

Yeah, the fun days.

The freeze game is similar to a freeze-clip. A clip is made static to give viewers a suspenseful vibe or for emphasis.

The freeze-frame effect first used in movies is now a trend in video-making social media platforms such as TikTok.

A freeze video as a social media trend would have part of a clip paused while another part plays.

So if you have seen a freeze-frame clip and would love to be that creative, this article is for you.
