Can't Stack Multiple Layers of Frame-Hold Nest'd Seqs.

I have one nested seq with some footage of a clap in it. I've copied it to 4 video tracks. I want this to happen:

Track 1 plays and freezes on the clap.
Track two - the same clap seq scaled down and rotated a bit - begins. The clap happens and it freezes on top of the first clap.

Track 3 - the same clap seq scaled down and rotated a bit further - begins. It freezes on the clap once more.

etc.

This seems like it should be a relatively easy task using frame holds. But, the frame holds do not seem to be allowed to overlap at all. Once the hold on track two begins, the hold on track one goes dark. Are you not allowed to overlap the frame holds? If not, what is the proper way of doing this?

I've always found the Frame Hold a troublesome method, preferring instead to just export the frame I wish to hold on.

Use 'insert frame hold segment' option instead of hold on in/out points, playhead and other frame hold options ...

Before nesting, just cut the clip at the point you want it to freeze, should be the same point where your playhead is, then right click and choose insert frame hold, delete the remaining clip after that segment. you can drag the frame hold segment edges across the timeline to the desired time.

Nest that sequence and duplicate it on the other tracks

This is basically what I do. But, once the playhead gets to an FH on another track (where there would have to be two FHs stacked on top of one another), the FH on the lower track disappears.

I know this was quite a while ago, but did you ever find a solution to this? i'm having the same problem, and in the past i have always solved it by just exporting a screenshot of the whole frame, but i just encountered a scenario where i need 2 frame holds of transparent videos with frozen timer overlays, so i can't just ss this time since it won't be transparent.
