Scene Detector

Here's an interesting app. Scene Detector is a utility that will analyze your footage and place markers where there are scene changes. It works by comparing frames evidently and there is a threshold slider to determine the amount of difference required for it to judge a scene has changed.

I haven't tried it but it sounds interesting.

MyBook vs. Blank Media

If you've been having trouble getting the Finder to recognize blank discs (not iPhoto or iTunes) and have a MyBook Pro II and installed it's silly software here's the solution:

Find a file called "com.WD.WDDriveServices.plist" and trash it.


If you have trouble locating it (not sure about Leopard vs Tiger here) look in /library/LaunchDaemons/.
