ln film industry, technically, it is used in movies both as a cut between two scenes and as a cut that indicates the finishing process or it can also be a name in the sense of a film tape or the connection between two separate shots. It can also be a version of a movie at different stages.
It is used to mean combining two shots that are separate from each other in a way that follows each other without interruption.
There are five basic types of cuts:
- Straight Cut; one image uninterruptedly follows another. Straight cut is the most common format: shot B follows shot A.
- Opposite Cut; the images that follow each other are naturally separate from each other.
- Parallel (cross) Cut; it describes two events that are happening at the same time.
- Jump Cut; a break in continuity that leaves a gap in the course of events creates a skipping plot.
- Shape Cut; a cut made between two similarly shaped objects.
lt is the most common cinematic art and the basic transition format used.
