Edit detection in After Effects

After Effects timeline after running scriptLloyd Alvarez posted Magnum – The Edit Detector to AE Scripts. The script will examine a layer in an After Effects composition and either break each shot into separate layers, or place markers at each shot change. I tested it on the old Apple “1984” ad I use in a motion graphics class, and it found all 26 edits at the default settings in less than two minutes on my MacBook Pro. I estimate, that it easily saved me about 30 minutes of work.

This is one of the most useful free scripts I’ve come across for After Effects.
