Magnum - The Edit Detector

This script automatically detects edits or "scenes" in footage. To use it you simply select a footage layer in a composition, set the work area to the region you’d like to find edits and tell Magnum to go to work! Magnum can then split the layer at each edit point or set layer markers where the edits are.

Simple, easy to use, and useful. It does a better job of finding hard cuts than it does of finding more gradual transitions, like dissolves or crossfades. The sensitivity control makes this easily tweakable.
