Is there a way for FCPX 10.4.x to cut up a long clip based on scene changes within that clip? Thanks.

I'm not aware of a built-in method to do scene detection but a quick search shows:

If you're comfortable in the Terminal:

I tested the above ffmpeg method on an exported mp4 with fairly static video and cuts to full screen graphics and it did work but the reported timestamps were slightly off. It could definitely get you in the ballpark though.

Is this option in the free Resolve version?
I've had to use this many times for clients.
Great tool, however, I own the full version.
Easy to export back to FCPX.
