AutoClip_v1.0 - "Scene Detection with Automatic Clipping" - by Phantasmagoriat

    Whenever there is a large difference between frames (like a scene change), AutoClip makes a cut:

    The alternating up/down pattern helps identify the start/end of a scene:

    Now you can have all the scenes at your fingertips, automatically!

    ----------------------

    REQUIREMENTS:
      1. CCCP
      2. Windows-based computer
      3. AviSynth (included in AMVapp)
      4. ffmpegsource2 (included in AMVapp; AVSPluginPack)
      5. (Optional) Sony Vegas Pro (if using MODE 3)

    SETTINGS:
    • MODE 1 --> Creates .log file of scene changes
    • MODE 2 --> Creates AviSynth Trim() Scripts
    • MODE 3 --> Creates VegasEDL.txt project file
    • SCENE-SENSITIVITY-THRESHOLD:
        --> HIGH --> Less scene changes
        --> LOW --> More scene changes
        --> 35 --> Default value

    HOW-TO-USE:
      1. Download "AutoClip.zip" | mirror1 [51KB]
      2. Unzip to any location (right-click >> extract)
      3. In windows, Drag-and-Drop video file(s) onto "AutoClip.bat"
      4. Open the generated VegasEDL.txt file with Sony Vegas Pro

----------------------

I haven't really tested it much, so any feedback would be appreciated.

Enjoy!

After talking with Eake4, here's some notes y'all might want to know about:

NOTES:
    -May not work with .wmv files
    -Filenames/Paths containing special symbols like Japanese characters or slashes cause problems
    -Will not work with non-pro versions of Vegas
    -If you are using the .mp4 container, Vegas Pro 10 has much better support than Vegas Pro 8
    -I advise using AutoClip with .avi files encoded losslessly with something like the Ut Video codec (420)
