How to create a Split by Scene in VideoStudio Pro X5

Use the Split by Scene feature in the Edit Step to detect different scenes in a video file and automatically break it down into several clip files. The way Corel VideoStudio Pro detects scenes depends on the type ofvideo file. In a captured DV AVI file, scenes can be detected in two ways:

  • DV Recording Time Scan detects scenes according to their shooting date and time.
  • Frame Content detects content changes, such as motion change,camera shifting, brightness change, etc., and splits them intoseparate files.
  • In an MPEG-1 or MPEG-2 file, scenes can only be detected based on content changes (i.e., by Frame Content).

To use Split by Scene on a DV AVI or MPEG file

  1. Go to the Edit Step and select a captured DV AVI file or an MPEG fileon the Timeline.
  2. Click Split by Scene button in the Options Panel. This will openthe Scenes dialog box.
  3. Choose your preferred scan method (DV Recording Time Scan orFrame Content).
  4. Click Options. In the Scene Scanning Sensitivity dialog box, drag theslider to set the Sensitivity level. A higher value means more precisionin the scene detection.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Scan. Corel VideoStudio Pro then scans through the video fileand lists all the detected scenes. You may merge some of the detected scenes into a single clip. Simply select all the scenes that you want to join together then click Join. The plus sign (+) and a number indicates how many scenes are merged into that particular clip. Click Split to undo any Join actions that you have done.
  7. Click OK to split the video.
