Which files are created?

  • EDL - Edit Decision List (.edl)
  • EDL - Edit Decision List (.edl)
    [with gap between takes]
  • CSV - Comma-separated values (.csv)
    [Timecode In, Timecode Out, Frame In, Frame Out]

As soon as your video is analyzed you will receive an email with links to the generated files. You can also download them in your File History. Per minute of video, the analysis takes an average of 5 seconds.

Recommended Workflow

  1. Upload your video clip and start the Scene Cut Detection. If the file exceeds the maximum upload limit, you can also upload a compressed version of your video.
  2. Download the generated EDL/XML and place it in the same folder as the original video clip.
  3. Import the EDL/XML into your editing program, link it to the original video clip and start editing.

The tool is free! But expensive to run.

Scene Cut Detection requires a lot of server power, yet we decided to offer the tool for free as long as we can cover the costs through donations. Since is ad-free and wants to stay that way, we appreciate a donation to keep the tools running and to develop more features. We would be very grateful for a little donation over Buy Me a Coffee or PayPal. Thank you and have a productive day!
