For the first six videos (Big Buck Bunny, Cosmos Laundromat, Elephant Dreams, Sintel, Tears of Steel, Valkaama) scene annotation was taken from the movie scripts detailed below. Precise scene transitions were taken as a subset of the shot transitions.
Elephants Dream: Divisions taken from production files: http://video.blendertestbuilds.de/download.blender.org/ED/
Big Buck Bunny: Divisions taken from production files: http://graphicall.org/bbb/index.php
Sintel: Divisions taken from MKV chapters: http://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/graphics/blender/demo/movies/Sintel.2010.1080p.mkv
Tears of Steel: Divisions taken from raw video frame directories: https://media.xiph.org/tearsofsteel/tearsofsteel-footage-exr/
Cosmos Laundromat - Divisions taken from production files: https://cloud.blender.org/p/cosmos-laundromat/55f35f872beb3300960bb388
Valkaama: Divisions taken from movie script: http://www.valkaama.com/download.php?target=media/script/Valkaama_v.2007-06-30(English-Final).pdf
The ground truth division for the other 15 videos, given that there was no available director script, was created by a number of independent human annotators. These experts were given the definition of a scene as: “a sequence of semantically related and temporally adjacent shots depicting a high-level concept or story”.
The different divisions were then aggregated and validated one against the other to eliminate biases. We then compiled them according to the most prevalent results to create the final annotated division for each video.
