We propose a robust method of shot change detection for old film sequences. In particular, we propose a cut detection method using phase-only correlation. The threshold value of this method can be determined mathematically using the properties of the phase-only correlation in the proposed method. Dissolves can be detected by improving the proposed cut detection method. We evaluated the proposed methods by comparing it to several conventional shot change detection methods on actual old film sequences. Experimental results show that the proposed method can detect shot changes in old film sequences more accurately than conventional methods.
