It's getting to the point that a video would be less time consuming.....

Got a BAC house that we secured 12/2009 for a company i no longer work for. To date we have been to the property 33 times. 140 miles round trip with NO other possible work in between. Decent house, nice neighborhood. Got my 5th re-secure in 3 years from another co. So i called the local realtor up in this town who is also an inspector for Sierra FS. He confirmed the house was secure and there was no damage. (i find this constantly! Neighbor pissed about the home setting empty calls in and says it's unsecure ect.) He took a shot of all sides of the house and one of each room.This has always been fine in the past. Get a call from the servicing co. "NOT ENOUGH PICS! WE NEED A MINIMUM OF 85 PICS ON A RE-SECURE!" REALLY????? I'm lucky to get 85 pics on an initial secure unless there is trash! If you have a 3 bed 2 bath with LR and kitchen and you take 6 photos of each room (1 of each corner and 2 of the ceiling) you get 42 pics. 3 for a lock change, 2-4 in crawlspace depending on access, 1 of each side of the house and 1 of the securing sign. That's 54 pics and that is about average for me. Also mad there was not an address pic (never been an address on the house) and mad there was not a street sign pic. Street sign on every visit now? WTF is up with that??? I just finished up going through over 2,000 photos i have on this house. We NEVER had a street sign pic. Gonna drive into the town i am near today and get a pic of a similar street sign to appease them. This BS is why i was mostly out of P&P but since the REO stuff dried up i am finding myself taking SOME P&P back. What a PITA! Forgot how much i hated P&P! Wish Safeguard would hurry up and leave as they are doing a crappy job anyways................

I have submitted a video once with a bid. The home literally had trash coming out the front and back doors and you couldn't get them shut without moving trash. Problem was, the home was horribly infested with cockroaches as well. So we sent in a video of lifting up the top of a pizza box that was halfway out the doorway, and you could see about 50 roaches scurry out of the box. We got approval. I paid my guys double time on that one.

Anyone know of a program where a person could take i high res video and later at the office play the video and grab a frame a second to save as a JPG? I would pay good money for something like this and i'll bet i'm not the only one...........

Mac or PC?
Apple has Final Cut (many different versions )
PC has Sony Vega?, Adobe premier?

I'm not real sure about the PC programs as I like to edit video with my Mac and I use Final Cut.

You get what you pay for. Video, audio and editing. Macs are paramount.

As are some other name brand tools that I use. So I can agree with that. However, I find that I like my Macs better.

I use different machines (computers) for different jobs. My racetrack runs on a PC. I do my books on a PC. I edit videos and music with my Mac's. My computers are just another tool to me.
What is it you want to accomplish? I didn't really want a power drill - what I wanted was a round hole. Thus, the tool I liked was obtained.

Enough of the Mac/PC debate.

I haven't had much time with the PC editing programs. I've heard the names, not even sure if I got them right in the above post. So I'm not help much with there.
