  • Unable To Create Auto Scenes From Avi File

    I am a new user to Edius. I am running trial version 4.51c. My issue is that I cannot find a way to do auto scene detection when capturing from an existing avi file on my hard drive. I am sure it must be possible as other basic editing packages can do this. I can work out how to achieve it if capturing from a DV tape but can't find a way of doing it from an AVI file. Please help. Thanks Steve

    Sorry Steve,

    Scene detection is a capture thing only!

      Thanks Rusty for your quick response. I guess that settles it for me. I do find it a little surprising though that cheap editing products like AVS Video Editor have this capability. I guess this means that I have to recapture 20 x 1 hour tapes. Arrggghh.

        You can use scenalyzer to scan your avi files and do the scene detection as well...then use the extracted files inside Edius...It will be much faster than recapturing...

          Thanks for the tip. I did try the scenalyzer program however the time it takes to do scene detection and more specifically to commit the changes still takes about 35 minutes which is a whole lot longer than the few seconds which AVS takes to do the same job. Cheers Steve

            hmmmm

            how would any software know where a scene should change, if it is according to my shooting, then I would end up with thousands of clips per hour

            are you pointing your camera at the same spot for a long time? in that case, it would make sense

            in my case, I am happy with the camera start/stop scene division points

              MS Movie Maker does scene detect, but it's hit and miss.

                If I remember correctly, though, the files created are only usable in AVS whereas Scenalyzers are usable in multiple NLE's.
