Jun 11, 2024• Proven solutions

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 on the scenes that you want.

Though many video editing programs support auto scene detection, like FFmpeg, FCP, or Adobe Premiere, they often come on the complicated side. So here, I want to share a powerful and easy-to-use video scene detection software: Wondershare Filmora. With it, it takes only one click to make scene change detection, and load to the Timeline for comfortable editing. Download it to have a try!
