Finding the original edit points in a video is necessary before you start editing the video. Using scene detection helps you to automatically get the cut points without having to go through the footage manually.
- Apply a cut at each detected cut point: When this option is selected, Premiere Pro analyzes the footage and automatically adds cuts when it detects a change in the scene.
- Create bin of subclips from each detected cut point: Premiere Pro creates a new bin next to the original Source clip (previously known as Master clip) with subclips spanning the start of the clip up to a cut point. then another subclip spanning the next segment of the clip up to the next cut point, and so on.
- Create clip marker at each detected cut point: Premiere Pro adds a clip marker instead of adding cuts.
Premiere Pro automatically adds cuts to the linked audio as well. If you don't want that, separate the audio from the video before applying scene edit detection. Alternatively, you can select the audio clips after the cuts have been applied, right-click and select Merge to merge the audio clips together.
