Hi,\n\nA while ago on here (possibly over a year, maybe even two) someone\nrecommended a tool that would analyse and split a DV file into scenes based\non either timecode and /or frame content.\n\nAnyone any recollection of what this was or even some suggestions for\nalternative tools (ideally cheap or shareware)?\n\nAs background, I'm currently having a play around with quite a few trial\nversions of different video editing software, some of which have this\nfeature (e.g Ulead Video Studio), others which seem to have it partially\n(Vegas seems to scene detect on capture only, but not from an existing\nfile(?)), and so on to Premiere which does no scene detect at all. I've\nbeen fairly impressed with VideoStudio but it is so slow, especially when\nadding transitions etc and previews. I do a mixed bag of stuff, all very\namateur, and use the benefits of scene detection maybe 60-70% of the time\nwhen knocking out holidays, birthdays etc when it comes in very handy. For\na couple of years I've been getting by quite happilly with Pinnacle Studio\nfor the simple stuff, and switching to Premiere for specific scenes, and\nhaving now got a new PC, am in a bit of a re-evaluation phase. In a\nnutshell I need something that can churn out run of the mill stuff easily\nand QUICKLY, while still having the feature set for more advanced stuff.\nHence, why I'm considering the scene capture tool as a bolt on to possible\nVegas or Premiere.\n\nAny suggestions greatly received. TA.
