We propose a new approach for accelerating the video editing process by identifying good moments in time to cut unedited videos. We formulate this problem as a classification task and propose a self-supervised scheme that only requires pre-existing edited videos for training, of which there is large and diverse data readily available. We then propose a contrastive learning framework to train a 3D ResNet model to predict good regions to cut.
