Stop on last frame and hold indefinitely

I want to make an animated text in After Effects and export it so it that stops on the last frame and just stays there. I don't want time remapping because eventually the time will run out and it will end. I want to use this in a presentation that I will talk about and I don't know how long that talk will be. I seem to remember that there was a way to do it but you had to export it somehow to Photoshop and then export it from there. Seems really complicated for such a simple project. Any ideas? Thanks.

Following on from the other suggestions - you might be worth looking at either a non-looping GIF (make your video in AE, then drop it into Photoshop and choose Save for Web - Legacy, then select GIF - 128 Dithered and at the bottom there's an option for looping) but I think a better option might be to use Adobe Animate.  In the past, when it was called Flash, you could build your own player - a lot simpler than it sounds.  I have no idea if this is still possible, but might be worth checking out

Have your timeline indicator on the frame that you want to freeze and go to the top of the interface layer/time/freeze frame.

After Effects, Premiere Pro, Adobe Media Encoder, DaVinci, Final Cut Pro, Movie Maker, and even Handbrake all render movies. None of them will embed a tag that a media player will read that tells the player to hold the last frame of the video. There may be some video players that have that option. If there are, you will have to do that kind of setup in the media player, and it would be specific to that application.
