Yes it can, but you are probably better off doing them in your editor in most cases. CompositeLab doesn't have tools specific for a freeze frame effect.

You can reduce the speed of a clip down to 1% by right clicking the footage on the timeline and changing the speed to 1%.

Note: 0% doesn't work, but setting the speed to 0.1% changes the value to 0%, but I don't know if there are any side effects to making the footage an infinate length like 0% would do.

Take care.

I'm sorry, I must have not been clear... I need to save the frame as a document. So I can bring it up in paint shop pro. Thanks for the info though... I didn't know you can do that

Ah, for that, you can use CompositeLab quite easily. Set the in and out points both on the frame you want, and set the render options to a still image format, such as .tga or .png.

But keep in mind that regardless of the software you use, your frame of video isn't going to be any bigger than a resolution of 720x480, assuming it is NTSC. The only way to get it bigger than that is to digitally alter the size, which should be pretty simple in your image editor.
