Split Your Video into Sub Clips with Auto Scene Detection

Scene detection is a very useful technique that helps you split a video at changes into sub clips automatically. When you want to synchronize audio and video tracks in a movie, or cut out some unwanted clips, auto scene detection will help you a lot. Because after scene detection, you can quickly find and focus only scenes that you want.

Though many video editing programs support auto scene detection, like FFmpeg, FCP, or Adobe Premier, they often come on the complicated side. So here, I want to share a powerful and easy-to-use video scene detection software: Wondershare Video Editor. With it, only one click to make scene change detection, and load to the Timeline for comfortable editing. Get below free trial now.

Sorry, the Mac version is different from the Windows version. The scene detection feature isn't available for Mac.

I downloaded version 2.8.0 for Mac and even after digging into it and following your tutorial, I cannot find the scene detection feature that you mention. Also, my version looks a lot different than yours. Are you sure this feature is available for Mac?
