In film, a split edit is a cut that changes the audio and visuals at different times. This helps with continuity between cuts. The audio acts as an off-ramp from the previous scene, or an on-ramp to the next.
- An L Cut overlaps audio from the previous scene on to the next. It's an off-ramp.
- A J Cut overlaps audio from the next scene on the previous. It's an on-ramp.
