Search smarter with Smart Scene Search™.
Find scene changes with a single click.
It can be tedious to look for all of the scene changes in your video clips, especially when you've got hours of footage. This is where Smart Scene Search comes in. While editing, all you have to do is click your middle mouse button to the right or the left of the playhead in the thumbnail preview to automatically find the next or previous scene change. This makes it easy to set key frames, find a good place to cut scenes, or split your clip.
