Video scene cut/shot detection program and Python library.

Project description


Github Repo:

Install: pip install --upgrade scenedetect[opencv]

PySceneDetect is a tool for detecting shot changes in videos, and can automatically split videos into separate clips. PySceneDetect is free and open-source software, and has several detection methods to find fast-cuts and threshold-based fades.

For example, to split a video: scenedetect -i video.mp4 split-video

You can also use the Python API (docs) to do the same:

from scenedetect import detect, AdaptiveDetector, split_video_ffmpeg
scene_list = detect('my_video.mp4', AdaptiveDetector())
split_video_ffmpeg('my_video.mp4', scene_list)
