FFMPEG Builder: Auto Chapters

This node will first determine if the video file has chapters. If it does, it will call Output 2 and exit.

If none are detected, it will scan the video file looking for scene changes using the “Percentage” value to determine what is considered a scene change, a good value here is 45 but your mileage may vary. If will build a list of scene changes skipping any that are less than the “Minimum Length” since the last chapter.

It will then create a new metadata file and update the “FFMPEG Builder” to use this metadata file to add chapters.


  1. Chapters were detected and a new metadata file was created for the “FFMPEG Builder”
  2. No chapters were detected
