The cursor at the Scene timeline indicates the approximate MPEG2 frame where the
embedded logo disappears into the video backgroud. Click the "New Scene" icon as
shown below to break the current video segment into two smaller contiguous segments
by adding the second scene for this video clip. If the current time scale is too
small, it can be enlarged with the zoom icon to see more details of the position
and duration of the new scene.
After a new scene is created, Scenarist automatically assigns a new name for this
scene as shown on the left pane of the Track Editor. Clicking this new scene item
highlights its position and duration in the timeline window. The following picture
shows the two scenes produced from the original video clip of chapter 1. The total
length of the two scenes is exactly the duration of chapter 1 before breaking it
into two scenes. The start time of the new second scene may not be at the exact
specified time position due to the requirement that the first frame of each scene
has to be a MPEG2 I-frame (other MPEG2 frame types are P-frames and B-frames).
Scenarist picks the closest I-frame as the start of a new scene (00:00:01.22 instead
of 00:00:02.00). In the following screen shot, the start time and duration of the
second scene is drawn enclosed in a blue rectangle. The cursor on the scene timeline
indicates the desired exact time position.
