All,

This video was not shot with the purpose of educating professionals on the how-to's of weatherization. Its purpose was an explanation for a home owner of what to expect during a project. Dmitri and Allan are both correct that no "dense packing" takes place during this video sequence. It is very difficult to place a camera inside of a stud cavity and capture what is going on during a fill process as there is no ambient lighting.

We do appreciate your feed back as it is always good to have another professional perspective.

Thank you

This isn't densepacking.  These guys have documented their own ignorance.

I am curious as to what was dense packed.  I have been doing this work for over 20 years and know what dense pack cellulose is and did not see any dense packing in this video.  Allan
