    I'm trying to find a way to set the poster frame or thumbnail of a video (batch operation would be best) to one of the last frames for that video, say 2-3 seconds back from the end. I would prefer a default setting rather than doing it manually.
    Is there a way to do this on a mac or some program that is able to do this after the files are on my hard drive?

    I "NEED" a thumbnail of about the last 2-3 seconds of a given video. Something like,

    Thumb image = Total#frames - 75 frames. (for 30fps)

    The programming wouldn't be that hard if someone knows mac programming. I don't, bugger!!!

    Should I put this in a different section or is there no way to do it?

    Less lost in L.A.
    Sounds like your editing a video rather than writing code. If so then your post belongs in the digital video forum.
