Bonus tips: The face replacement software also includes an Auto Scene Detection feature, which helps to split your video into different clips when the scene changes. This is hugely useful when you want to focus only on your wanted part quickly. To do this, just right click a clip in the left item tray, select "Scene Detection", and then hit "Detect" to let it complete the rest automatically.
