Stage 32 Glossary


Editing is the process (performed by a film editor) of selecting, assembling, arranging, collating, trimming, structuring, and splicing-joining together many separate camera takes (includes sound also) of exposed footage (or daily rushes) into a complete, determined sequence or order of shots (or film) that follows the script. Digital editing refers to changing film frames by digitizing them and modifying them electronically. Relational editing refers to editing shots to suggest a conceptual link between them.
