What text file format? If XML, what schema? Lack of definition leads me to=
believe you can just do this manually with a text editor right now.
Also, by "frames" I think you mean frame number--please confirm.

Kino does scene detection in two ways: using the DV new-shot flag and by=20

This is not anything you can do right now in the GUI or on command line. Wh=
you can do right now is to load a clip into Kino and hope it detects your=20

If you want something more automated, then you need to be more specific abo=
