The predominant style of editing in narrative cinema and television.
The purpose of continuity editing is to smooth over the inherent discontinuity of the editing process and to establish a logical coherence between shots, focusing on time (temporal continuity) and space (spatial continuity).
When watching television programmes and films, we often take for granted that we can follow the action without any confusion, even though it is extremely unlikely that the footage has been recorded continuously.
In order to achieve this, editor must stick to the grammar of editing.
Cutting from one shot to another view that matches the first shot's action and energy.
Gives the impression of continuous time when watching the edited film.
By having a subject begin an action in one shot and carry it through to completion in the next, the editor creates a visual bridge which distracts the viewer from noticing the cut or noticing any slight continuity error between the two shots.
