Shot Detection/Scene Cut Detection

Shot Detection (or Scene Cut Detection, or Scene Change Detection) is used to split up a video into basic parts (shots or scenes); usually, a shot is a series of consecutive pictures representing a continuous action.

One of the applications of Scene Cut Detection (SCD) is separating some scenes that require attention from uninteresting ones on CCTV footage.

Of course, it all can be done manually, but SCD has more advantages because it saves time.
