Methods to Create a Property Video or a Picture Video:

  1. Montage Video:
    • Uses digital pictures only, not video clips. Pictures are electronically linked to create the perception of motion. Special effects enhance the emotion and mood of the digital photos.
    • Best for someone who wants the advantages of video without having to shoot and edit video footage. This requires at least 8 still pictures.
    • For examples of Montage Videos and how they presents on your listing page see the Property Video & Picture Video examples.

  2. Dynamic Video:
    • Uses video clips taken through a video camera or a digital camera with video capability.
    • Best for someone who wants to highlight broader, more sweeping views of a house, its surroundings, or a spacious room. This video option adds depth and dimension by showing actual movement, such as beach grass blowing, waves crashing, or sandpipers scampering along the beach.
    • Use video clips where subject contains motion and digital pictures for those that do not.
    • For examples of Dynamic Videos and how they presents on your listing page see the Property Video & Picture Video examples.
